MPAA Rating: Not Rated

It’s March in South Florida. The beach towns are flush with young people looking for action and excitement.
For one unlucky group of thrill-seeking spring breakers, their adventure leads to the black waters of the Florida Everglades – a place with mosquitoes the size of birds, snakes as long as school buses and tens of thousands of flesh-ripping alligators.
But beyond the scope of the traditional predators famous for keeping the glades wild is another phenomenon – one with two legs and an insatiable thirst for killing.
The Everglades Killings is gearing for its premiere release. Ben Wilder directs this upcoming Horror film. Wilder also co-wrote the script along with Ashley Billington, Jesus Roldan, and Sean Therrien. The story by Follow Through Productions.
The Everglades Killings trailer is a brief 30-second teaser clip, give-or-take. It shows like a Found Footage film. A group of friends is enjoying themselves on a vacation trip. This excitement flashes to a nightmare filled with abduction, pain, and torture.
From The Everglades Killings trailer, the film follows this group of vacationing friends looking to party.
Their plans take a detour when they run into a group or a family of sadistic predators. The group of friends gets abducted. They’re held hostage and become victim to torment and murder.
The trailer doesn’t show the killers but as you can speculate they’re deranged. Their killing mechanism is pain and torture.
The Everglades Killings is familiar, but the trailer is brief and powerful. The production runs like most Found Footage films. A group of friends or family on a trip in the middle of nowhere. They become abducted by a group or family of ruthless predators. They meet their demise. The End.
This pitch seems to be the norm for the Found Footage circuit. The exception reserved for a few rare ones that stand apart. The Everglades Killings trailer seems to fall under familiarity. A place where you can almost predict what happens in the film before you even watching the film itself.
Likewise, I am a big fan of themes that portray abduction, bondage, and torture. So, I find myself giving any film under this theme a fair chance.
The Found Footage style of filming is not my personal favorite. Yet, this style has a way of putting the viewer in the movie. It has that first-person feature, which turns out to be successful when its all said and done.
A release date has not yet been announced. Stay tuned for updates.
