Expressway to your Skull a Psychedelic Horror
Expressway To Your Skull is the name of a Sonic Youth song but its also the feature debut film from writer/director Michael Okum. More than twenty-five thousand dollars was raised towards production of “Expressway To Your Skull” through a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter. Distributed by Brain Damage Films “Expressway To Your Skull” is scheduled to be released on VOD (Video on Demand) on the 1st of December 2015 with a DVD release immediately following on the 3rd of December 2015.
“Expressway To Your Skull” uses the teens terrorized in the backwoods concept but the film is promised to be a unique entry to the sub-genre by utilizing a combination of “gritty realism, haunting atmosphere, and psychedelic visuals”.
The Synopsis to the film “Expressway to your Skull” reads as follows:
Ed (Tracey )and Amy (Atwood), a thrill-seeking couple in their 20’s desperately searching for a way to fix their strapped existence. Amy has just turned 23 and lost her job when Ed, her small-time drug-dealer boyfriend, comes to her with a crazy, spur-of-the-moment scheme: After ripping off a higher level drug-dealer “friend” for some serious cash Ed persuades Amy to steal away from the city to the backwoods for a camping trip to cut loose and “expand their minds” while letting things cool down back in the city.
With a stash of drugs, backpacks and half-cocked enthusiasm Ed and Amy hit the road… but as they arrive in the woods their idyllic 3-day trip slowly starts to turn into a nightmare.
Soon the couple cross paths with a so-called “hunter” named Charlie (Aaron) who carries his rifle with him into their camp. At first they are only mildly suspicious of him being a threat. But as their plans for a drug-fueled getaway turn sour they find themselves in a fight for their lives against a psychotic survivalist with a diabolical, mind-expanding scheme of his own.
