Halloween Horror Drama ‘Autumn Road’ Comes Home This Month
Gravitas Ventures and The Last Motel have announced the VOD release of Riley Cusick’s Autumn Road, a new Hallow-flavored horror drama that follows a young woman who returns to her hometown 10 years after her sister vanished while trick-or-treating on Halloween Night and becomes wrapped up with two brothers who run a haunted house.
Here’s the full official synopsis: Ten years after a young girl goes missing on Halloween Night, her grief-ridden sister returns to their hometown to make peace with her unresolved past. Along the way she becomes entangled with two idiosyncratic identical twins from her childhood, who now run the town’s roadside haunted house. With nowhere else to go, she is drawn deeper and deeper into their world of scares, secrets, and an enchanting house of horrors.
While one twin pulls her closer, the other’s threats and scare tactics escalate to a breaking point where he must decide what lines he’s willing to cross. At the same time, her connection with her sister is growing as she starts to unearth new information about who she was and what happened that night all those years ago. The three haunted souls soon find themselves on a melancholic journey for truth set against the backdrop of an approaching Halloween season and the anniversary of her sister’s disappearance.
Riley Cusick, who previously directed a number of shorts and appeared as an actor in Chelsea Stardust’s Satanic Panic and Joe Begos’ VFW, makes his feature directorial debut with Autumn Road, and he also headlines the cast as twins Charlie and Vincent. He is joined onscreen by Lorelei Linklater (Boyhood, Bomb City), Justin Meeks (Kill Or Be Killed, Butcher Boys), and Lar Park Lincoln (Friday The 13th Part VII: The New Blood).
The film is produced by Xander McCabe under his new The Last Motel banner, with executive producers Eric Floyd and Mark Schultz. Cusick directed from his own script.
Autumn Road will be available on VOD in North America on November 23rd, on various digital and cable platforms, including Amazon, iTunes, Vudu, Google Play, Comcast, Dish, and Shaw.
