We receive mail daily here at the TD offices and sometimes we miss a few things. Case in point would be the trailer and one-sheet for the UK horror romp Young, High, And Dumb from Rum Punch Productions. What’s pretty cool about this flick is that there are five directors! Yep, five. Read on for more about the film and to see that poster and trailer as well. Dig it!
As Rum Punch Productions has released the first NSFW trailer for Young, High, And Dead. The trailer is simply titled “YHAD MK1” which features the cast being introduced to the backdrop of a rape scene.
Writer/Director Statement: Young, High and Dead is a modern twist on a familiar genre piece. As a huge fan of 80’s horror classics, I wanted to write and shoot something that harked back to this style of cinema. YHAD nods to certain influences in that era but hopefully brings a layered journey for the group of five friends, part autobiographical part fantasy, YHAD draws a story that hopefully audience members can engage and relate to. I tried to buck all trends and steer in the opposite direction to what people expect, not just narrative. The way I made the film is just as fantastical as the film itself.
To celebrate a recent engagement a group of five friends embark on a camping trip they will never return from. Deep in the forest the group pitch next to the grave of a local missing child. As the killer watches them it’s not long before a night of drink and drugs turns into a waking nightmare. When the group awake in the early hours, they find themselves shackled and chained to trees, will the group stick and work together in order to exit the situation and the forest alive? Or will the killer leave them all Young, High and Dead?
