'Turbo Kid' Filmmakers Share New 'Summer of '84' Trailer
The Canadian flick will premiere at Sundance later this month
Published Jan 12, 2018At long last, a proper trailer has arrived for Summer of '84 — the new film by the Canadian filmmakers behind cult hit Turbo Kid.
Summer of '84 is set to premiere at Sundance later this month, but now we can all get an eyeful of the upcoming flick. Loaded with '80s nostalgia, the trailer shows the film falls in line with other hit retro throwbacks like Stranger Things and IT. However, Summer of '84 definitely comes with some seriously creepy vibes more in tune with a classic slasher flick, as the trailer shows a troupe of neighbourhood kids crossing paths with a serial killer.
You can watch the newly shared trailer to Summer of '84 down below.
The Sundance description for the film reads as follows: "Summer, 1984: a perfect time to be a carefree 15-year-old. But when neighborhood conspiracy theorist Davey Armstrong begins to suspect his police officer neighbor might be the serial killer all over the local news, he and his three best friends begin an investigation that soon turns dangerous."
As previously reported, the Canadian directing team of François Simard, Anouk Whissell and Yoann-Karl Whissell helmed Summer of '84, which stars Graham Verchere, Judah Lewis, Caleb Emery, Cory Grüter-Andrew, Tiera Skovbye and Rich Sommer.
The film was written by Matt Leslie and Stephen J. Smith, and Montreal duo Le Matos have done the soundtrack for Summer of '84.
