Trailer and poster give an unnerving look at a Cruel Summer

Writer/director Phillip Escott took inspiration from real events to craft a thriller entitled CRUEL SUMMER. A trailer and poster have now arrived online to give us a glimpse of what Escott's film has in store for us, and judging from this imagery it's going to be a very disturbing experience.

The synopsis: 

Danny (Richard Pawulski), a teenager with autism, escapes the inner city for the beautiful countryside as part of his Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme. Little does he know, that bitter Nicholas (Danny Miller from Emmerdale Farm) is hunting him, stemming from a lie created by the enamoured and envious Julia (Natalie Martins) and Calvin (Reece Douglas). As the three close in on Danny, Nicholas' behaviour becomes increasingly erratic and violent, and Julia and Calvin must decide whether to go through with Nicholas' deadly plan.

So we have an innocent kid being brutalized over lies and ego. Yeah, this is going to be a tough one to sit through, but it also definitely looks like it's a movie worth checking out.
