American Psycho author Bret Easton Ellis has co-written and produced a horror film with director Derek Martini: The Curse Of Downers Grove.
The film stars Bella Heathcote (Dark Shadows) and Lucas Till (X-Men: First Class). “The town of Downers Grove looks like your average suburban neighborhood — but Downers Grove has a disturbing secret… For the past eight years, one senior from every high school graduating class has met a bizarre death right before graduation day. And this year, Chrissie Swanson has a terrible feeling that she is going to be the one to die. Can Chrissie survive the curse of Downers Grove or will she, like those seniors before her, fall prey to the town’s deadly secret?”
The trailer’s not exactly inspiring, is it? But it’s tough to write off anything Ellis-related…
The Curse Of Downers Grove is released on 21 August in the US. No UK release has been announced. Keep up with the latest horror news with the new issue of SciFiNow.
