This August buckle up for the Dutch thriller Tailgate, in which a family’s road trip turns into a terrifying nightmare. We’ve got an exclusive in which the family is attacked by a stranger following a road rage-induced event.
In Tailgate (aka Bumperkleef), Hans, his wife, and two young children hit the highway on a trip to visit family. After getting stuck behind a slow-moving van, he recklessly starts to antagonize the eerily stoic driver, blaring the horn and riding his bumper. Little does he realize that he’s just crossed the wrong motorist – a deranged madman who sets out to teach Hans a lesson he’ll not soon forget. Lured into an alarming game of vehicular cat and mouse, a simple family road trip turns into a deadly obstacle course in this nerve-wracking, pulse-pounding thriller, an Official Selection at the Sitges Film Festival and FrightFest.
Written and directed by Lodewijk Crijns, the thriller stars Jeroen Spitzenberger and Anniek Pheifer.
Tailgate makes its US theatrical, VOD, and Digital debut on July 30th and will be available exclusively at Wal-Mart on DVD on August 3, 2021.
