IFC is driving Road Games into theaters this March

Last Updated on July 22, 2021

Not to be confused with the terrific 1981 quasi-slasher starring Stacy Keach and Jamie Lee Curtis, ROAD GAMES is the upcoming highway-bound terror flick from British director Abner Pastoll. IFC has picked up the flick for a limited theatrical and VOD release on March 4, 2016.

Not only does ROAD GAMES look like a bloody good time, it's the newest film to feature re-animated scream queen Barbara Crampton. After a gruesomely long horror hiatus, Crampton has returned with a vengeance. She began her Barbaissance with YOU'RE NEXT, then took a string of solid indie roles in films like WE ARE STILL HERE and SUN CHOKE, so this can only bode well for the film.


After a disastrous summer trip, Jack finds himself hitchhiking through the sun-drenched rural French countryside with nothing but his British passport. Unaware of dangers that are plaguing the roads, he tries without much success to get home. Along the way, he partners up with another hitchhiker, a beautiful French girl, Véronique. But when they accept a ride from a local oddball (Frédéric Pierrot), the pair finds themselves thrown in a deadly game of cat and mouse in which nothing is what it seems. Bursting with nonstop twists and turns and an undercurrent of Hitchcockian malice, this riveting psychological thriller is a hell of a ride.

ROAD GAMES stars Andrew Simpson, Joséphine de La Baume, Frederic Pierrot, Feodor Atkine, and Barbara Crampton.
