‘Drifter’ Exclusive Clip: A Post-Apocalyptic Wasteland Gets Tense and Creepy in Cannibal Thriller — Watch

This clip may give you nightmares.

“Drifter”

No one is safe in the post-apocalyptic wasteland of Chris von Hoffmann’s upcoming “Drifter.” Seriously, no one. In von Hoffmann’s first feature film, two brothers find themselves crossing paths with a family of psychotic cannibals when they get stuck in a desolate town at the end of the world. Relatable.

In our exclusive clip, things are appropriately mysterious and terrifying as Vijah (Monique Rosario) is forced by the head cannibal in charge, Latos (Anthony Ficco), to tie Miles (Aria Emory) down to a couch and then watch, terrified, as his brother is thrown in the middle of what looks to be a large dirt circle made of garbage. They’re both bruised and bloodied, and von Hoffmann doesn’t make it easy on the audience by cutting away, but instead he stretches out every last arduous, creepy second.

Coupled with screeching music, try not to feel thoroughly unsettled by the end of the scene.
