The creator of DISCOPATH has another flashback fright film set for release this summer.

Red Hound Films has announced that it will release AQUASLASH at drive-ins and on VOD June 23. Written and directed by Renaud Gauthier, it stars Nicolas Fontaine, Brittany Drisdelle, Nick Walker, Madeline Harvey, Paul Zinno, Chip Chuipka, Howard Rosenstein, Ryan Ali, Cameron Geller, Lanisa Dawn and Ivan Ossa. The synopsis: “High school is over for the students of Valley Hills and they’re ending it with a huge weekend bash at Wet Valley, a reportedly haunted waterpark stuck in the ’80s where they can party like there’s no tomorrow. A cash prize is up for grabs for the fastest team to fly down the slides, but the teens are unprepared for a razor-sharp surprise as someone plots to slice up the competition.”
