‘Summer Of ’84’ Trailer Is A Teenage Thriller
Pulling those nostalgia strings of the 1980s is all the rage—thank you STRANGER THINGS and IT. That doesn’t mean every movie that comes out harkening back to the good ol’ days of arcades and recreational drug use in high schools is a cookie-cutter creation. SUMMER OF ’84 hopes to plant the 80s in the real world.
SUMMER OF ’84 pits teenagers against a real-life antagonist who’s killing local children—or at least that’s the premise from the gorgeously shot trailer. It looks like another great film in the 80s renaissance we’re currently seeing in the movie industry.
The movie is directed by RKSS, the team behind TURBO KID, following a script that was written by Matt Leslie and Stephen J. Smith. The movie stars Rich Sommer, Tiera Skovbye, Graham Verchere, Judah Lewis, Caleb Emery and Cory Gruter-Andrew.
SUMMER OF ’84 is making its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival next week.
