The BATTLE ROYALE-esque thriller is coming next month.

RUE MORGUE got the first look at the poster with the news that XYZ Films will release THE PARK on VOD March 2. A Vanishing Angel production written and directed by acclaimed short filmmaker Shal Ngo, it stars Chloe Guidry, Nhedrick Jabier, Carmina Garay, Presley Richardson and Sean Papajohn. The synopsis: “THE PARK tells the story of a mysterious virus that starts killing all adults, leaving society to be governed by children living on borrowed time. After the adult population is wiped out, rival kids battle for control of an abandoned theme park. Danger lurks around every corner, and they must do whatever it takes to survive their hellish Neverland.” The film was shot at Six Flags New Orleans, an actual amusement park abandoned after it was hit by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
