Director Patrick Lussier (My Bloody Valentine, Drive Angry, Terminator: Genisys) and writer Todd Farmer (Jason X, My Bloody Valentine, Drive Angry) are re-teaming for Trick, which stars Omar Epps in the main role of Detective Mike Denver, a man obsessed with a serial killer that has remained one step ahead of him for years.

Trick centers on an elusive serial killer, who descends upon a small town annually, bringing terror and death. He is responsible for gruesome murders year after year, each in different jurisdictions and seemingly unrelated. No one believes this could be the same killer. Detective Denver has faced Trick once before – he shot and killed him. Or so everyone keeps telling him. However, Denver knows Trick is out there and he’s coming back for revenge.

Trick also stars Ellen Adair (Homeland, Billions, The Sinner) as Sheriff Lisa Jayne, the sheriff in the small town of Benton who has always considered Detective Denver as her mentor. Cheryl Winston, the only survivor of the latest round of killings in her small town, will be played by Kristina Reyes (Blindspot, Shades of Blue). Talbott is played by genre legend Tom Atkins and Jamie Kennedy (Scream 1-3, Malibu’s Most WantedRomeo + Juliet) will play Dr. Steven.  Principal photography for the film is taking place in New York.

As Lussier explained to Bloody Disgusting:

Trick is, for lack of a better term, ‘slasher-noire’ horror set in upstate New York, spanning five consecutive Halloweens where serial killer Trick Weaver taunts police up and down the Hudson River practicing murder as performance art. The Benton Township, where Trick’s murderous journey begins, has fallen into decay, almost like Trick’s initial killings didn’t just claim individual victims but killed the town itself.

Director Patrick Lussier’s lengthy and accomplished résumé includes several of the most successful horror films and television programs in recent years. His eye for detail was instrumental in editing the numerous Wes Craven films, including the famous Scream franchise, Red Eye, New Nightmare, and Cursed to name just a few.  Lussier directed and co-wrote My Bloody ValentineDrive Angry and was a writer and producer on Terminator Genisys. Writer Todd Farmer has a long history in the horror genre including Jason X, and The Messengers and has worked previously alongside Lussier co-writing My Bloody Valentine and Drive Angry.
