Pitchfork, the feature film debut from Emmy-nominated choreographer Glenn Douglas is set to release later this year. The film is a production from Pioneer Motion Pictures. Pitchfork is a slasher film that aims to be a new franchise of horror. The slasher genre got a new breath of life in recent years. It would be interesting to see how Darryl F. Gariglio and Glenn Douglas Packard’s concept will perform in the slasher landscape. Emphasis on a terrifying killer is key. In Pitchfork, the antagonist is described as:
“….a broken and misshapen beast on a rampage fueled by secrets and betrayal.”
“….a new monster for the ages, joining the pantheon that has terrified audiences for decades as mutilated bodies pile up in their wake.”
A detailed summary along with the debut Teaser for Pitchfork released today. The overview reads as follows:
Having recently shared a life-changing secret with his family, Hunter recruits his friends to come with him from New York to the farm where he grew up as he faces his parents for the first time.
As the college students enjoy the fresh air of Michigan farm country, an older, more dangerous secret slowly emerges.
