Many of you will recognize the name Bret Easton Ellis . If not, then you’re probably familiar with his works. Ellis is most known for penning the novels American Psycho and Less Than Zero. More often than not, his words are used as a foundation for someone else to write a screenplay upon. But now Ellis is bringing his writing talents to film all on his own.

The Curse of Downers Grove looks wonderfully deranged, and I can’t wait to see more. The film is directed by relative newcomer Derick Martini and will be released on VOD, Blu-Ray, and DVD September 1st courtesy of Anchor Bay Entertainment. Check out the official plot synopsis,stills, and trailer below:

The town of Downers Grove looks like your average suburban neighborhood — but Downers Grove has a disturbing secret…. For the past eight years, one senior from every high school graduating class has met a bizarre death right before graduation day. And this year, Chrissie Swanson (Bella Heathcote) has a terrible feeling that she is going to be the one to die. Can Chrissie survive the curse of Downers Grove or will she, like those seniors before her, fall prey to the town’s deadly secret?
