The festival-award-winning horror film THE CURSE OF BUCKOUT ROAD sees release later this month, and the trailer and poster have now emerged.

Coming to theaters (see a list of cities below) and VOD September 27, CURSE OF BUCKOUT ROAD is based on a real-life haunted place in upstate New York and was written and directed by Matthew Currie Holmes. The cast is headed by Evan Ross, Henry Czerny (READY OR NOT), Dominique Provost-Chalkley, Colm Feore (THE PRODIGY) and Danny Glover. The synopsis: “Buckout Road might be known as the most haunted road in New York State, but nobody really believed it…until now. A college class project on modern mythology turns deadly when a trio of students and an on-leave soldier discover a series of horrific urban legends surrounding Buckout Road may actually be true. The deeper they dig into the road’s dark history, the more dangerous their quest becomes. From witches burning at the stake, to backwoods albino killers to a modern, unstoppable stalker, writer/director and horror-film aficionado Matthew Currie Holmes leaves no genre unexploited in this loving throwback to late-’80s midnight movies.” THE CURSE OF BUCKOUT ROAD will play theaters in New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, Dallas, Houston, Detroit, Tampa, Minneapolis and Miami.
