Scream actress Jenna Ortega stars in director Diego Hallivis’ twisted film American Carnage, a comedy-laced immigration horror out today in theaters, on Digital, and On demand.
In the film, “After a governor issues an executive order to arrest the children of undocumented immigrants, the newly detained youth are offered an opportunity to have their charges dropped by volunteering to provide care to the elderly. Once inside the eldercare facility, the volunteers discover the governor and the facility’s supervisor have cooked up a horrifyingly depraved conspiracy that endangers the young and the old.”
Ortega stars alongside Jorge Lendeborg Jr, Allen Maldonado, Bella Ortiz, Jorge Diaz, Yumarie Morales, Catherine McCafferty, Brett Cullen, and Eric Dane.
In our review, Kelli Marchman McNeely describes the movie as a “must-see, brutal, but fun flick,” that is “laced with humor, and tackles some heavy subjects, including immigration, and the fear of growing old.”
Written by the Hallivis Brothers, American Carnage opens in theaters and arrives on Digital and On Demand on July 15, 2022, from Saban Films.
