Turbo Kid directors new film Summer of '84 gets killer trailer!

One of the top movies that I am looking forward to in general all across the board is writing-directing trio François Simar, Anouk Whissell, and Yoann-Karl Whissell's upcoming horror-thriller SUMMER OF '84.

The directing team knocked it out of the park with TURBO KID a few years back and it looks like they are going to really kill it with this new film. I cannot wait as this film has officially taken the top spot on my must-see flicks list.

You can check out the trailer for SUMMER OF '84 below and then make sure to hit us up and 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.
