I’ve heard nothing but fantastic things about the new film Bad Turn Worse and this clip “Money” certainly backs up a lot of them. As a native Texan its refreshing to see a film that, by all appearances so far at least, plays with an ever so slightly heightened version of the state’s flavor without making it a pandering caricature.
The film was written by Dutch Southern (let’s stop for a moment and tip our hat to that name) and was directed by Simon Hawkins and Zeke Hawkins. It stars Mackenzie Davis (AMC’s “Halt and Catch Fire,” What If), Jeremy Allen White (Showtime’s “Shameless”), Mark Pellegrino (The Big Lebowski, CW’s “Supernatural”), and veteran William Devane (The Dark Knight Rises, FOX’s “24” Series). The film opens in select theaters Nationwide and VOD platforms Friday, November 14th from Starz Digital. Hit the jump for our Bad Turn Worse clip.
Here’s the official synopsis for Bad Turn Worse:
After a weekend of partying with stolen money, three Texas teens (Jeremy Allen White, Logan Huffman, and Mackenzie Davis) find themselves indebted to a sociopathic criminal named Giff (Mark Pellegrino in a breakout performance). To pay their debt, Giff forces the teens to steal from his boss, a money-laundering gangster named Big Red (William Devane). Things go from bad to worse when betrayal, distrust, and corruption complicate an already dangerous plan. This stylish and emotional crime thriller is the stunning directorial debut of Simon and Zeke Hawkins.
