It’s just not safe to go camping in the woods anymore, and further evidence is offered in DESOLATION, opening next month. The trailer and poster have just been unveiled, and we’ve also got the release info.
IFC Films will release DESOLATION to select theaters, VOD and digital platforms December 15 under the IFC Midnight banner. Sam Patton directed from a script by Matt Anderson and Michael Larson-Kangas; the cast is headed by Jaimi Page, Alyshia Ochse, Toby Nichols and Claude Duhamel. The synopsis: “After the death of her husband, Abby [Page], her son Sam [Nichols] and best friend Jen [Ochse], venture into the forests of upstate NY on a camping trip, only to find themselves in danger from a mysterious hiker [Duhamel] with malicious intentions. As the trio attempts to navigate the vast wilderness in search of safety, they find themselves the hunted prey in a deranged killer’s terrifying game and the only way to survive is to kill—or be killed.”
