Epic Pictures’ horror label Dread Central Presents has set the U.S. release date of Lasso to November 13th and revealed a new trailer to Evan Cecil’s Western-themed slasher.
From Dragonfly Films, Lasso, produced by Elaine Gibson, Todd Myers and Evan Cecil, stars Sean Patrick Flanery (The Boondock Saints), Lindsey Morgan ("The 100"), Karen Grassle ("Little House on the Prairie") and Andrew Jacobs (Paranormal Activity).
The film centers around Kit (Morgan) and Simon (Jacobs), two young leaders of an Active Senior Tour group, out on an adventure to a small-town Rodeo festival located deep in the woods. It’s a great experience for the group … until they try to leave. Simon and Kit must save themselves, and whatever seniors they can, from becoming victims of a deadly Rodeo Ritual. Along the way they join up with another unexpected group of victims, including a one-armed cowboy, Ennis (Flanery), Rosheen, the Rodeo queen, and Trish, a powerhouse female bull rider. Together the group must fight to survive the night from relentless bloodthirsty cowboys on the hunt for human livestock.
In the UK, Lasso will premiere at FrightFest in London on August 25th.
