Night Run Trailer

There's not much to this brief teaser trailer, but we want to feature it anyway in order to put this little film on you radar while they finish it up before release. Night Run is an 80s throwback horror action thriller made by filmmaker Erick Solis, already filmed and heading into post-production now. It was crowdfunded on Indiegogo and they're trying to finish it up and get it ready for release sometime soon. Described as a "supernatural Death Wish" of sorts, this is about a construction worker who resurrects on Halloween night looking for the men that murdered him a year before. The rad synth score in this teaser is by Crockett, and I can't wait to hear more of it. The cast includes Tyler Cole, Jake Hays, Cameron Tagge, and Rebecca Weaver. We'll be keeping an eye on this project and watching out for more updates/trailers as they arrive.

Here's the post-production teaser (+ poster) for Erick Solis' Night Run, from YouTube (via Quiet Earth):

Night Run Poster

Night Run is a massive love letter to the 1980's and all its awesome action movies. The film follows Daniel McKormack, a man who resurrects from his grave on a Halloween night seeking revenge on the men who murdered him a year prior. Follow Daniel as he teams up with the towns' Sheriff, featuring car chases, synth music and 80's imagery way to rad to be typed in a single sentence. Night Run is both written and directed by newcomer filmmaker Erick Solis, making his feature directorial debut with this. The project was originally funded on Indiegogo and is now deep in post-production working to be finished. There's no release date set yet or any other info about a release. For more updates, follow along here. First impression?

Cool. These kinds of films are always going to pop for me.

At a moment it looks like a music video from 80s. But there's still time to give it a chance ...

Jay Bauman is just going to freakin love these trailers! But only for the synth wave 'cause he can't stand 80's nostalgia. Me on the other hand... And now after finally watching both trailers I sure do hope there's an actual MOVIE in here somewhere and not just continuous shots of models staring aimlessly at the camera as though they're filming an Levi's commercial.
