After playing at Sundance and South by Southwest,Mickey Keating’s “Carnage Park” hit theaters in New York theater on Friday courtesy of IFC Midnight. A new clip offers a sense of the ’70s-set horror thriller’s genre wares; watch it below.
James Landry Hébert and Michael Villar star as two bank robbers who take Ashley Bell’s character hostage; they’re all of them mere pawns in a game being played by a desert-dwelling sniper who doesn’t take kindly to folks coming anywhere near his secluded hideout. The washed-out scene finds Bell assisting a man get his leg out of a bear trap; once free of his restraints, the troubled-looking fellow shares what little knowledge he has of their dire situation — none of which inspires any confidence .
Keating previously directed “Darling,” “Pod” and “Ritual.” “Carnage Park,” which is also available on VOD, is set to open in Los Angeles on July 8.
