The theatrical and VOD release date Mickey Keating’s survival-thriller Carnage Park has been set as July 1st, according to Entertainment Weekly.
Carnage Park follows two bank robbers fleeing to the desert after a robbery goes wrong. The duo stumble across Carnage Park, a remote stretch of wilderness that a psychotic ex-military sniper prowls.
Carnage Park is my total love letter to Peckinpah, and Deliverance, and 70’s survival movies,” Keating said. “It’s set in 1978 and it’s a crime story [which] turns into a fight for survival. It’s hard to categorize in a way, because it’s an energetic crime movie that goes horribly horribly awry. I think it’s going to be something different for people.
“The year is 1978. After botching an ill-conceived bank robbery in a desolate California town, two wannabe crooks named Scorpion Joe (James Landry Hébert) and Lenny (Michael Villar) flee the scene with a hostage, Vivian (Ashley Bell), and lead the local lawmen on a dangerous high-speed chase. With his partner suffering from a gunshot wound and losing blood fast, Joe takes to the back roads to dodge the heat, but he unwittingly steers them into the path of a far more dangerous evil: a psychotic ex-military sniper who doesn’t take kindly to strangers. Thrust into a wicked game of cat and mouse with a highly trained and mentally imbalanced killer, they begin a harrowing fight for survival.”
