We previously reported on director Jason Riesgraf’s upcoming slasher feature, Lake Runs Red here.  Now, we are dangerously close to getting more information next week!

The producers of Lake Runs Red, an independently produced, home­invasion horror feature, will release their first full trailer, an explosive vignette focusing on the film’s  main antagonist, “Bruce”, expertly played by actor CJ DeVaan. It will be released via their official  YouTube channel on Tuesday July 14th, 2015.

Lake Runs Red is employing a unique trailer strategy for their marketing campaign. Instead of releasing  a standard two minute trailer, the film is instead releasing five character trailers, each focusing on one of  the main characters from the film. This is the first full trailer in a series of five, the remaining four will be  released over the balance of the summer and fall.

“I think people will really respond to CJ’s performance as Bruce. As far as horror villains go, his  performance is among the greats. It’s iconic. It’s volatile and nuanced. It’s mysterious. There’s more to  this character’s story than meets the eye. I’m so proud of CJ. This role is going to make him a star in the  Twin Cities performance community,” said director and producer Jason Riesgraf.

Added Stephanie Riesgraf, producer and unit production manager, “This trailer was really well received  by our cast and crew. It was just the perfect way to introduce the world to “Bruce” and the Lake Runs  Red narrative as a whole. Words can’t describe how excited we are. We feel strongly that these trailers  are really going to raise the profile of our indie film.”

Lake Runs Red released two previous teaser trailers on October 31, 2014 and April 1, 2015 to  remarkable fanfare. Principal photography for Lake Runs Red began in July 2014 and ended November  2014. The film is currently in post­production. For more information, please visit  www.LakeRunsRed.com  and connect with us on Twitter.
