"Run!!" Crackle has unveiled the official trailer for an indie zombie horror film titled The Clearing, which will be premiering exclusively on the Crackle Channel streaming early next month. The zombie thriller stars Liam McIntyre as a father who takes his young daughter, played by Aundrea Smith (seen on "Diary of a Future President"), on a weekend camping trip during a mysterious disease outbreak. They end up trapped in his camper in a clearing near the woods, fighting vicious zombies in hopes of making it out alive. Also starring Sydelle Noel and Steven Swadling. Writer/director David Matalon's goal with this was "to pay homage to beloved zombie tropes while blazing his own way with imaginative screenwriting and innovative filmmaking techniques." The tagline in the trailer is pretty ballsy: "You think your quarantine is rough?" Ha.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for David Matalon's The Clearing, direct from YouTube:
At the dawn of a zombie apocalypse, The Clearing unfolds amid tensions between Tom (Liam McIntyre) and his wife (Sydelle Noel) over his parental responsibilities and the time he spends with his daughter Mira (Aundrea Smith). Tom takes Mira on a camping trip, only to discover the impending disaster that leaves the pair trapped in a clearing in the woods, fighting to make it out alive. The Clearing is written and directed by first-time filmmaker David Matalon, making his feature directorial debut after a couple of short films previously. Produced by Zack Blinder, Jonathan Jay Piumelli, Mark Sayre. Crackle will release Matalon's The Clearing streaming on the Crackle Channel starting June 4th next month. How does it look?
They could come up with better tagline, but I guess nobody is perfect. Having said that, I must admit zombie films can be sometimes one of those weaks spots I have. So, I'll have wait for reviews, especially if the time of quarantine isn't over ...

The beginning of this trailer made me think this was going to be garbage, but the latter half of it looks pretty intense! I'm tempted to give it a shot just to see how it plays out.
