Trailer: The horror film All Fun and Games, starring Natalia Dyer and Asa Butterfield, reaches theatres and VOD next month
Back at the start of 2022, we heard that Natalia Dyer (Stranger Things) and Asa Butterfield (Sex Education) had signed on to star in a horror thriller called All Fun and Games, which would be executive produced by Avengers: Endgame directors Joe and Anthony Russo. Now that movie is ready to make its way out into the world, set to receive a theatrical and VOD release on September 1st. With that date drawing near, a trailer for All Fun and Games has arrived online, and you can check it out in the embed above.
All Fun and Games marks the feature directorial debut of Ari Costa and Eren Celeboglu, who also wrote the screenplay (based on an original spec script written by JJ Braider). Here’s the logline: The Russo Brothers’ AGBO presents a terrifying tale about a group of Salem teens who discover a cursed knife that unleashes a demon that forces them to play gruesome, deadly versions of childhood games where there can be no winners, only survivors.
And here’s the synopsis: A Russo Brothers’ ABGO production starring Natalia Dyer and Asa Butterfield, All Fun and Games explores the elements of cruelty inherent in children’s games – Flashlight Tag, Hangman, Hide & Seek – and what happens when the games go too far. When a group of teens find a cursed knife in the woods, they unleash a malevolent demon that will not rest until it’s claimed all of their lives and souls in a terrifying deathmatch.
A previous synopsis had warned us of a “cruel entity known as ‘The Skarrow.’”
Dyer and Butterfield are joined in the cast by Keith David (John Carpenter’s The Thing), Annabeth Gish (Midnight Mass), Laurel Marsden (Ms. Marvel), Kolton Stewart (Some Assembly Required), and Benjamin Evan Ainsworth, who played the title role in Disney’s recent version of Pinocchio.
All Fun and Games was produced by Angela Russo-Otstot, Jake Aust, Kassee Whiting, and John Zois.
