Writer-director Matthew Currie Holmes is taking viewers down Buckout Road, a loving throwback to late-80’s midnight movies.
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 discovers 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.
The Curse of Buckout Road‘s all-star cast includes Evan Ross (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay), Henry Czerny (Ready or Not, Mission: Impossible), Dominique Provost-Chalkley (Wynonna Earp, Avengers: Age Of Ultron), Colm Feore (The Prodigy, Thor), and Danny Glover (the Lethal Weapon series, Jumanji II: The Next Level).
During its festival run, The Curse of Buckout Road received numerous awards and accolades, including Best Feature Film at the Pasadena International Film Festival, Best Thriller Feature Film at the Hot Springs Horror Film Festival, and Best Feature Film and Best Screenplay at both Blood in The Snow Film Fest and Buffalo Dreams Fantastic Film Festival. The film won the Audience Award at People’s Film Festival Harlem, and Richmond International Film Festivals as well as the Special Jury Award at Brazil International Film Festival. Writer-director Matthew Currie Holmes won Best Director at Commffest and World Music and Independent Film Festival.
The Curse of Buckout Road opens in cinemas across the U.S. and Canada Friday, September 27, 2019.
