LOS ANGELES, August 22, 2019 – RLJE Films has acquired the horror film TRICK, which will be available in theaters and on VOD and Digital HD on October 18, 2019. Directed by Patrick Lussier (My Bloody Valentine) who co-wrote the film with Todd Farmer (Drive Angry), the film stars Omar Epps (“House”), Kristina Reyes (“Blindspot”), Jamie Kennedy (Scream) and Tom Atkins (Escape From New York).
“We’re excited to release TRICK just in time for Halloween,” said Mark Ward, Chief Acquisitions Officer at RLJE Films. “With thrilling plot twists and turns, TRICK will have audiences grasping the edge of their seats and will be the start of a terrifying new franchise.”
On Halloween night in 2015, Patrick “Trick” Weaver massacred his classmates at a costume party. After being arrested, he managed to escape police custody, but not before being shot five times by Detective Mike Denver (Epps). Everyone believes Trick must be dead, but when a masked killer reappears the following Halloween, and every Halloween after that, they realize the nightmare is not over. With Trick wreaking havoc and killing innocent people in increasingly terrifying ways, Denver will stop at nothing to finish what he started and bring the carnage to an end.
TRICK is a production of Durango Pictures and was produced by Ita Kennedy (“Ghost Hunters”) and Ellen Wander (Spinning Man).
Ward and Jess De Leo from RLJE Films and negotiated the deal with Ellen Wander and Jordan Dykstra of Film Bridge International on behalf of the filmmakers.
