For me, a horror movie isn't really complete unless it's got some blood, guts, and gore. That visceral reaction that I get when I see someone's finger nails being plucked off their hands or a really good torture scene sometimes just feels... right. I think, for the most part, I'm not a violent guy. But a good horror movie almost makes me feel like I'm the one being tortured or brutalized. And I kinda like it, to be honest.
Director Direck Martini looks to have potentially struck gold with The Curse of Downers Grove. Check out the trailer below. It's pretty gnarly.
The movie stars Lucas Till, Bella Heathcote, Penelope Mitchell, Kevin Zegers, and Tom Arnold. Check out the synopsis:
“The town of Downers Grove looks like your average suburban neighborhood — but Downers Grove has a disturbing secret…. For the past eight years, one senior from every high school graduating class has met a bizarre death right before graduation day. And this year, Chrissie Swanson (Bella Heathcote) has a terrible feeling that she is going to be the one to die. Can Chrissie survive the curse of Downers Grove or will she, like those seniors before her, fall prey to the town’s deadly secret?“
This is going to be gross. And great.
