In a quaint little town in 1974 Florida, an ominous white van stalks a young girl, while her parents’ skepticism leads to a terrifying Halloween nightmare in The Man in the White Van.
Inspired by a true story, the film delves into the eerie underbelly of a seemingly idyllic and follows the harrowing experience of young Annie Williams, a spirited girl whose carefree existence is turned upside down as she becomes stalked by an ominous man in a white van.
The tranquility of Annie’s world begins to crumble as the menacing white van inches closer and closer. As her parents’ skepticism increasingly grows, Annie finds herself isolated, and on Halloween night, her worst fears materialize into a full-blown nightmare as she gets abducted.
Warren Skeels makes his directorial debut with The Man in the White Van, a gripping tale of terror, paranoia, and the darkness that lurks beneath the surface. Based on actual events of the serial killer Billy Mansfield Jr., the film captures a bone-chilling story of a young girl’s unimaginable horrors and every parent’s worst nightmare.
