Barbara Crampton-starring film will receive its world premiere at Fantastic Fest
It was announced Tuesday that the horror-thriller Applecart will be receiving its world premiere at this year’s Fantastic Fest in Austin, Texas, and you can get a taste of the creepiness in store for attendees with a just-released poster for the film.
In the movie, a caring mother loses her sanity, setting off a chain of events resulting in tragedy and murder.
Applecart stars Brea Grant (Beyond the Gates, Rob Zombie’s Halloween II), Sophie Dalah (Satanic), Elise Luthman (Henry Danger), Joshua Hoffman (Shameless), and Daniel Roebuck (The Man in the High Castle). It also boasts the reunion of two cast members from Adam Wingard’s modern horror classic You’re Next, Barbara Crampton and AJ Bowen.
The film is directed by first-time filmmaker Bradford Baruh, whose previous credits include producing Don Coscarelli’s wonderfully weird John Dies at the End. Baruh also produces here alongside Andy Meyers, with Coscarelli serving as executive producer. Applecart is written by Irving Walker, with a story by Walker and Baruh.
Fantastic Fest takes place at Alamo Drafthouse South Lamar in Austin, Texas, from Sept. 21-28. Learn more about Fantastic Fest at the event’s official website.
