This guy really digs his friends.
The Loneliest Boy in the World–a new horror-comedy that’s been picked up by Well Go USA Entertainment–will offer some Halloween viewing this year, according to a report on Deadline.
The film–from director Martin Owen (Let’s Be Evil) and screenwriter Piers Ashworth (Save the Cinema)–will land in theaters Oct. 14 and then on-demand Oct. 18.
The macabre ’80s-style film debuted at The Popcorn Frights Festival in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla. earlier this year, garnering some critical and audience success. The movie will continue on the festival circuit as it makes its way to domestic theaters.
The feature tells the story of Oliver (Max Harwood) who, desperate for new friends after his mother’s death, digs them up–literally. Supernaturally, however, the cadavers come to life, turning Oliver’s life on its head.
The Loneliest Boy in the World also stars Hero Fiennes Tiffin (Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince), Susan Wokoma (Enola Holmes), Evan Ross (Hunger Games franchise), Tallulah Haddon (The Last Duel), Hammed Animashaun (The Wheel of Time), Jacob Sartorius (Pantheon), Ben Miller (Paddington 2), Alex Murphy (Conversations with Friends), Nicola Roberts (The Holden Girls: Mandy & Myrtle) and Ashley Benson (Her Smell).
