Trailer: Elena Kampouris, Sean Astin, and Jeremy Piven take on a serial killer / masked slasher in the October release Vindicta
A few weeks ago, Variety reported that Paramount’s Republic Pictures had acquired the distribution rights to the serial killer horror thriller Vindicta and were planning to release the film sometime in October. Now a trailer for the film has arrived online (you can watch it in the embed above), and along with the trailer comes details on Paramount Global Content Distribution’s release plans: Vindicta will be reaching select theatres and will be available to buy on digital as of October 6th.
Starring Elena Kampouris of the most recent Children of the Corn movie, Sean Astin (The Goonies), and Jeremy Piven (Judgment Night), Vindicta has the following synopsis: When a city is terrorized by a sadistic serial killer, a seasoned detective and a newly recruited paramedic are forced into a deadly game of vengeance, only to discover the key to stopping the bloodshed lies in unlocking the truth of their own haunted pasts.
Travis Nelson (The Recruit), Daniel Cudmore (Twilight), Jaime M. Callica (Ruthless), Bradley Stryker (Crawlspace), and Karolina Cubitt (Autumn in the City) are also in the cast.
Ian Neligh wrote the screenplay, working from a story by producer Steven Paul. Scott Karol and Charles Cooper served as executive producers. Vindicta was directed by Sean McNamara, whose previous credits include Casper: A Spirited Beginning, 3 Ninjas: High Noon at Mega Mountain, Casper Meets Wendy, The Even Stevens Movie, Bratz, The Suite Life Movie, Soul Surfer, Spare Parts, Cody the Robosapien, Cats & Dogs 3: Paws Unite, On a Wing and a Prayer, a couple Sister Swap movies, Aliens Ate My Homework, Aliens Stole My Body, and multiple Baby Geniuses movies.
The film has been rated R for violence and gore, language and brief drug material.

I was already sold on this one as soon as I heard “serial killer horror thriller led by Elena Kampouris, Sean Astin, and Jeremy Piven”, but now that I’ve watched the trailer and seen that the serial killer is presented as a masked slasher, I’m even more interested.
