Following a UK Premiere at FrightFest Glasgow, our sister company Bulldog Film Distribution will release the tense, stylish and deftly constructed noir thriller ‘Detour’ from writer/director Christopher Smith (Triangle, Creep, Severance, Black Death), in select UK cinemas from 26th May 2017. It is set fro?DVD/VOD release on Mon 24th July.
When law student Harper (Tye Sheridan ? X-Men Apocalypse) wakes with an almighty hangover the last thing he expects at his front door is threatening tough guy Johnny Ray (Emory Cohen ? Brooklyn) and his girlfriend Cherry (Bel Powley ? Diary Of A Teenage Girl), but he soon comes to realise that a drunken bar conversation the previous night is about to turn into a dark and dangerous reality. Harper obsesses that his step-dad Vincent (Stephen Moyer ? True Blood) is responsible for the car crash that has left his mum in a coma, and Johnny Ray is here to drive them all to Vegas where he?s agreed to kill Vincent for $20,000. Harper?s claims he was drunk when he hired him fall on deaf ears and he realises he might not be able to change course; if he wants to survive this, he needs to carry on down the road he?s already chosen, even if there?s clearly danger up ahead.
