Trapped in a Farm Town Grain Bin - True Story 'Silo' Official Trailer
"Standard procedure's gonna kill that kid!" Oscope Labs has released a trailer for a film titled Silo, which originally premiered in 2019 and is finally getting a "virtual cinema" release this May. Disaster strikes in a small American farm town when teenager Cody Rose becomes the victim of a grain entrapment accident. As corn becomes quicksand inside of a 50-foot tall silo, the town locals must put aside their differences to save Cody from drowning in the crop they harvest. "Silo is the product of an extensive collaboration between city-based filmmakers and the rural American community. The entire creative team spent years working with farmers, fire/rescue workers, and trusted agricultural institutions to ensure the authentic portrayal of the all-too-common danger of grain entrapment… A reminder of the importance of agricultural safety — it is also a testament to what communities can accomplish when they work together." Starring Jack DiFalco, Danny Ramirez, and Jeremy Holm. This looks way better than expected, might be a worthwhile watch.
Here's the official US trailer (+ poster) for Marshall Burnette's Silo, direct from Oscope's YouTube:
