Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment's Crackle Plus this week announced the premiere of original action-horror film The Clearing has been set for June 4th, 2020.
Ahead of the release, you can watch the action-packed trailer below!
The movie, only available on Crackle beginning June 4th, stars Liam McIntyre ("Spartacus") as a father who takes his daughter, played by Aundrea Smith ("Diary of a Future President"), on a weekend camping trip during a mysterious disease outbreak. The film also stars Sydelle Noel ("G.L.O.W.") and Steven Swadling (Kickboxer).
Set at the dawn of a zombie apocalypse, The Clearing unfolds amid tensions between Tom (McIntyre) and his wife (Noel) over his parental responsibilities and the time he spends with his young daughter Mira (Smith). Tom takes Mira on a camping trip, only to discover the impending disaster that leaves the pair trapped in a clearing in the woods, fighting to make it out alive.
Making his feature directorial debut with The Clearing, writer-director David Matalon’s goal was to pay homage to beloved zombie tropes while blazing his own way with imaginative screenwriting and innovative filmmaking techniques.
"For the segment of our audience that loves zombie movies, The Clearing follows in the footsteps of our other horror offerings, such as Office Uprising and the Dead Rising film series," said Philippe Guelton, President of Crackle Plus. "This film will deliver an action-packed distraction that our fans are craving right now."
As a partner exclusive, the film will debut on May 25th on the Crackle Channel on Amazon Fire TV devices, available for early access in 34 million U.S. homes.
Crackle is available on Amazon FireTV, RokuTV and devices, Apple TV, most Smart TVs (Samsung, LG, Vizio), Gaming Consoles (PS4 and Xbox One), on iOS and Android mobile devices and on desktop at Crackle.com.
