What better for a summertime horror film than the story of a maniacal ice cream man? That’s precisely what upcoming genre flick The Ice Cream Truck looks to provide, and its pulpy new trailer is more than enough to get me excited for what’s to come.
Written and directed by Megan Freels Johnston, the film stars Dana Gaier (Despicable Me 3), John Redlinger (Thirst), Emil Johnsen (Isolerad), Hilary Barraford (Go For Sisters), Jeff Daniel Phillips (The Lords of Salem), and Lisa Ann Walter (War of the Worlds).
Mary’s husband gets relocated for work which allows her to move back to her suburban hometown. As her family ties up loose ends back home, Mary moves into their new house all alone and….waits. Yet in this idealistic world, something seems very odd. The Ice Cream Man, a symbol of youth and good times, starts killing some of her neighbors. Mary soon learns that the suburbs are scarier in more ways that she ever remembered.
The Ice Cream Truck hits theaters and VOD August 18th through Uncork’d Entertainment.
