Nightmares are always based on a little truth
My friend Jessica Cameron told me all about this new film she’s in, Buckout Road. When I headed over to the site I saw it was “Based on a Rumor” and was instantly intrigued. So many great horror stories start with a myth.
We have all heard of that one dark street in our city that “even the cops” or in my case, “even the cartel” won’t drive down alone at night. New York has Buckout Road, rumored to be the most haunted stretch of paranormal pavement in America. With a dark history of terror and untimely demises of its unfortunate travelers, Buckout Road has claimed victims for centuries.
Buckout Road looks like more than just a gore/slasher flick and more than a psychological thriller. It covers a lot of ground, if you’ll pardon another road pun. The story sounds complex and interesting, and I look forward to screening this one once it hits theaters or VOD.
Synopsis: Buckout Road might be known as the most haunted road in New York State, but nobody really believed it . . . until now. A college class project on modern mythology turns deadly when a trio of students discovers a series of horrific urban legends surrounding Buckout Road may actually be true. The deeper they dig into the road’s dark, mysterious history, the more dangerous their quest becomes. From witches burning at the stake, to backwoods albino killers, to a modern, unstoppable stalker, writer/director and horror-film aficionado Matthew Currie Holmes leaves no genre unexploited in his loving throwback to late-80’s midnight movies.
