We got a heads up this morning about a little horror movie that I think everyone will be interested in checking out--that is, if you like the slasher genre, and specifically, the slasher genre set in the woods. In the vein of FRIDAY THE 13TH and WRONG TURN comes.... THE BOOBY TRAPPER!
First off, great title. I mean, really... great f*cking title! With that out of the way, what is this sucker all about? Check it: Year after year, there are many people who do not come out of the woods alive. And if they happen to make it out alive, they will have a story to tell. Some run, but not fast enough. Some hide, but not good enough. Grace (Lisa Johnston) and her boyfriend Rodney (Chad Waites) are destined to fall under the Booby Trapper’s blade, but rogue cop Mike Hawk (Robert Collins) is patrolling these woods as well – seeking out the reason behind these brutal slaughters. The closer the Mike Hawk gets to catching the person responsible for these serial killings, the closer he gets to un-covering his own mysterious past.
Directed by Richard Stephenson, the trailer below looks super low budget, super gritty, and super fun. You can call Stephenson grew up on slasher movies like the rest of us and is putting his love for the genre to work. While a little cheesy in spots, and a little too many day-time shots, based on the trailer below I'd say this one is one to watch out for.
Enjoy the trailer, and stick around for more on THE BOOBY TRAPPER as we hear it!
