John Connor [Celluloid 04.05.16] horror thriller

Mickey Keating’s (POD) 1970s set survival thriller is looking better and better with each new look. We got a clip a couple of weeks ago and now we get an even better look vis: a sales reel unearthed by BD.

The movie, which stars The Last Exorcism's Ashley Bell, Pat Healy, Alan Ruck, James Landry Hébert and director-turned-sometimes-actor Larry Fessenden, made its debut at Sundance and was picked up by IFC Midnight after SXSW, so we should get a chance to see it soon.

The year is 1978. After botching an ill-conceived bank robbery in a desolate California town, two wannabe crooks named Scorpion Joe (James Landry Hébert) and Lenny (Michael Villar) flee the scene with a hostage, Vivian (Ashley Bell), and lead the local lawmen on a dangerous high-speed chase. With his partner suffering from a gunshot wound and losing blood fast, Joe takes to the back roads to dodge the heat, but he unwittingly steers them into the path of a far more dangerous evil: a psychotic ex-military sniper who doesn’t take kindly to strangers. Thrust into a wicked game of cat and mouse with a highly trained and mentally imbalanced killer, they begin a harrowing fight for survival.
