Fantasia 2017 Preview: Trent Haaga’s ’68 Kill’

by Phil Wheat

Based on the Bryan Smith novel of the same name, 68 Kill is written and directed by Trent Haaga (Citizen Toxie, Chop, Deadgirl) and stars Matthew Gray Gubler, AnnaLynne McCord, Sheila Vand, Alisha Boe, Sam Eidson and Lucy Faust.

Trailer-dwelling, sewage-pumping Chip (Matthew Gray Gubler) may not lead the most glamorous life, but he’s got one thing going for him: he’s head over heels infatuated with his girlfriend Liza (AnnaLynne McCord). He’s more than willing to overlook her wild streak—the fact that she’s hooking up with their landlord; her rather extreme mood swings —so when she proposes a plot to steal $68,000, he goes along with the plan. But when what was supposed to be a simple heist turns into an off-the-rails, blood-spattered crime spree, Chip learns the hard way just how deranged the love of his life really is. The new film from Troma alum Trent Haaga blends wicked comedy with pure pulp thrills for a no-holds-barred blast of insanity.

After taking home the audience award for Best Midnight Feature at this year’s SXSW, 68 Kill screens as part of Fantasia 2017 on July 29th at Auditorium des diplômés de la SGWU. IFC Midnight are also releasing the film in US cinemas and VOD on August 4th.
