Said to be the most haunted street in New York State, Buckout Road is the subject of an award-winning horror film now set for release next month. Read on for the details.
Vertical Entertainment and Trimuse Entertainment are bringing THE CURSE OF BUCKOUT ROAD (previously known simply as BUCKOUT ROAD) to select theaters and VOD September 27. The winner of Best Feature awards at the Pasadena International Film Festival, Blood in the Snow Film Fest, Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival and Hot Springs Horror Film Festival among other honors, CURSE was written and directed by Matthew Currie Holmes and stars Evan Ross, Henry Czerny (READY OR NOT), Dominique Provost-Chalkley, Colm Feore (THE PRODIGY) and Danny Glover. The synopsis: “A college class project on modern mythology turns deadly when a trio of students and an on-leave soldier discover that 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.”
