Summer of '84 Trailer

"There's a serial killer on the loose! What else could possibly be this exciting?" Right?! Gunpowder & Sky has released the full-length official trailer for filmmaking collective RKSS' new film Summer of '84, which first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year. This is the film that has been described as a mash-up of "Stranger Things", Stand By Me, and The Goonies, set in the 80's about a group of kids trying to figure out who a local serial killer is and stop him. The cast is lead by a group of four young kids, and the film stars Graham Verchere, Judah Lewis, Caleb Emery, Cory Gruter-Andrew, Tiera Skovbye, Rich Sommer, Jason Gray-Stanford, and Shauna Johannesen. The reviews for this from Sundance weren't as great as expected, but it still looks like it might be an entertaining film to watch later in the fall.

Here's the full-length trailer (+ quad poster art) for RKSS' Summer of '84, direct from YouTube:

Summer of '84 is directed by the filmmaking collective known as "RKSS" from Montreal, made up of Fran├žois Simard, Anouk Whissell, and Yoann-Karl Whissell. Their first feature film Turbo Kid debuted at Sundance in 2015. The screenplay is written by Matt Leslie and Stephen J. Smith. The film first premiered at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival earlier this year in the Midnight category. Gunpowder & Sky will release Summer of '84 in select theaters starting on August 10th, followed by a VOD release. Who's in?

Quick cash grab off of the success of STRANGER THINGS? Yeah, but this still looks pretty good.

I saw one cute teenage girl's ass in this. That's how bad this looks ...

I was gonna say, "Great, another 80's kid team-up flick trying to emulate Stranger Things!" actually looks kinda good. Not great, but might be fun.

Wow what an awesome trailer, music that is way too loud and vocals you can barely hear.

The synth score to the trailer is a little forced, and it kind of looks like Stranger Things meets Fright Night (killer instead of vampire) but it might be a nice VOD distraction one night.

A lot of people may be asking themselves, "Why do we keep on obsessing over yet more 80's nostalgia bullshit?" and to that I say, "Why not?".
