Awesome Summer of '84 poster reminds us of Goosebumps & Fear Street

Last week we shared the killer new trailer for TURBO KID writing-directing trio François Simar, Anouk Whissell, and Yoann-Karl Whissell's upcoming horror-thriller SUMMER OF '84.

And today we have the film's official poster before the film premieres at Sundance this Monday, January 22. I've said it before and I'll say it again that this new film is one of the flicks I'm most looking forward to checking out this year. I just hope I can keep my expectations in check!

You can check out the awesome GOOSEBUMPS/FEAR STREET style poster for SUMMER OF '84 below and then make sure to let us know what you think in the comments below or on social media.


Every serial killer is somebody’s neighbor. For 15-year-old Davey, the thought of having a serial killer in his suburban town is a scary yet exciting prospect at the start of a lazy summer. In hormonal overdrive, Davey and his friends dream of sexual conquests until the news reports of the Cape May killer. Davey convinces his friends that they must investigate, and they uncover that his next-door neighbor, an unassuming, single police officer, could be the prime suspect. Could Davey possibly be right, or is it his overactive imagination?

Writing and directing trio François Simar, Anouk Whissell, and Yoann-Karl Whissell (Turbo Kid, 2015 Sundance Film Festival) return to Midnight with this eerily resonant coming-of-age horror flick. The throwback synth score injects the tone with fun, thrills, and an escalating danger that ultimately tracks Davey’s loss of innocence. Indeed, the ’80s setting is less about the nostalgia hard-on than an essential parallel of that Reagan-era American fear that we are not as safe as we think.

SUMMER OF '84 is directed by François Simard, Anouk Whissell and Yoann-Karl Whissell (RKSS) from a script by Matt Leslie and Stephen J. Smith. The film stars Graham Verchere, Rich Sommer, Tiera Skovbye, Judah Lewis, Caleb Emery, and Cory Gruter-Andrew.

The film premieres at Sundance this Monday, January 22.
