Ah, 1999. Growing pains were definitely abound that year, though they weren’t as rough as these teens have it in Deandra Spinner’s feature directing debut, Death Trap.
The first trailer and poster are making the rounds this week from Emerald Wolf Studios, and features Bruce Klefstad, Emma Butler, Laith Wallschleger, Mercedes Gutierrez, Nicholas Denmon, Dafni Sufra and Troy Brookins.
Death Trap follows the story of six friends on Halloween 1999 in what promises to be a night of mischief and debauchery. The night quickly turns sour when a deadly combination of Florida wildlife, inclement tropical weather and a youthful assumption of invincibility set the stage for an accident that leaves the group stranded in the dark interior of the night. Quick-tempered Jake disappears into the dark. Derek and Jamal search for their furious friend while the girls stay behind. Eventually, the girls’ patience wears thin and they set out to seek help on their own. They will all soon discover that alligators are not the only predators living in the Sunshine State.
Death Trap arrives at a terrific point with the new year freshly begun, and a festival circuit primed for the taking. In the meantime, the trailer is above and in full, red band glory, packed with choice words and a tease of violent chaos to whet the appetite. Check it out, and peep the poster below as well.
