XYZ Films has just announced the premiere date and unveiled the trailer for the new supernatural slasher film #FLOAT, from the producer of Black Christmas.
Writer-director Zac Locke, a producer whose long list of credits includes the 2018 sorority-killings shocker Black Christmas, the comedy-fantasy Country Gold, Vengeance, and The Voyeurs starring Sydney Sweeney, is making his directorial debut.
In #FLOAT, the “Young, beautiful, and full-of-life, vlogger Kali and her friends are heading to the river for their annual float, but it’s the first time since their friend overdosed and drowned last year. Their partying turns deadly as a sinister paranormal force plunges them into a life-and-death struggle forcing them to face their own fears as they turn on each other – and proceed to die one by one.”
#FLOAT skillfully plays on classic tropes of ’80s slasher films – beautiful young, selfish people blithely ignore warnings about the dangers awaiting them and then get gruesomely killed off – while employing a modern sensibility.
Kaya Coleman (The Sinners, Dangerous Game: The Legacy Murders), Scarlett Sperduto (Those Who Walk Away), Grant Morningstar (Meathook), Kate Mayhew, Matt Wise, and Christina Nguyen (Lion) star.
#FLOAT premieres on Digital and VOD on December 9, 2022, from XYZ Films.
