POD/DARLING Director Mickey Keating Returns With CARNAGE PARK; Bloody Thriller Hitting Theaters/VOD This July!

unnamedHere at Icons of Fright, we’re big fans of director Mickey Keating. From his Cult horror film RITUAL to his UFO conspiracy thriller POD, we absolutely love his work. Don’t even get us started with this year’s descent into madness film DARLING (review), as it’s quite possibly one of the most effective horror/thrillers in a LONG time. We’re always happy and anxious to get a look at what the up and coming director is working on next, and chances are, by the time you read this, Mickey will have already filmed a dozen other films. Hitting theaters and all digital outlets on July 1st (via IFC Midnight), Keating’s homage to all things gritty and grindhouse, CARNAGE PARK, now has a poster & new trailer to go along with it and holy hell does it look intense. Give the trailer a watch and check out CARNAGE PARK on July 1st.

It’s 1978 and a bank robbery gone wrong leaves Vivian (The Last Exorcism’s Ashley Bell) the hostage of two criminals on the run. But things go from bad to off-the-rails berserk when she and her captors wind up on the sun-baked desert outpost of a deranged ex-military sniper (Pat Healy), who ensnares them in his deadly game of cat and mouse. Rising horror auteur Mickey Keating (Pod, Darling) directs this gritty, grisly homage to the glory days of grindhouse cinema.
