Imagine Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof with more bikinis and less showy dialogue and you’ve got director Jim Valdez’ Machine Head. Sharon Hinnendael, who also stars in the insanely awesome Rites of Passage with Briana Evigan, toplines the film.
The film’s synopsis reads:
The desert of Los Ranchos, CA isn’t your standard spring break hot spot but when Rachel’s (Hinnendael) high powered father gives her the keys to a beautiful desert home, she decides to make the most of it.
Spring break will most certainly be filled with her friends, some boys, cocktails and fun. Once away from the city, they find themselves being followed by a menacing hot rod on the highway. They quickly wish they’d gone anywhere else as a masked stalker hunts them through the desert heat.
Finally at the lavish vacation pad, the trouble they had on the road appears to be a distant memory …. until the doorbell rings late one night and Machine Head unleashes a hell unlike they’ve ever seen.
Machine Head costars Nicole Zeoli (The Telling), Christina Corigliano (Sand Sharks), Morissa O’Mara (The Cottage), Alana O’Mara (The Cottage), Robert Adamson (”Lincoln Heights”), Brett Howell (iMurders) and Blake Baskin (Last Day on Earth).
Posted above is the first official still from Relativity Media’s Mark Tonderai-directed frightener House at the End of the Street. The image depicts Jennifer Lawrence (Hunger Games) and her two beautiful costars in a state of terror.
The film concerns a teen girl (Lawrence) and her mother (Elisabeth Shue) who discover that the house across from her new home was the scene of a brutal murder. Things complicate further when the girl befriends the deceased family’s surviving son (Max Thieriot).
House at the End of the Street costars Krista Bridges (Land of the Dead), Gil Bellows (”Ally McBeal”), Nolan Gerard Funk (Deadgirl), Jon McLaren (Metal Tornado), Jonathan Malen (Mean Girls), and Joy Tanner (”Degrassi: The Next Generation”).
