In Body at Brighton Rock, a part-time summer parks employee must face down her fears as she discovers what might be a crime scene in the backwoods, where she’s lost all communication as well as her map. With help on the way but constantly delayed, she must face an increasing amount of trials to survive. Written and directed by Roxanne Benjamin, and produced by Benjamin, Christopher Alender, and David A. Smith, Body at Brighton Rock is an examination of one young girl, Wendy, who learns if she has what it takes to get through this harrowing experience.
The trailer suggests the film will be a kind of survivalist horror, as Wendy must keep herself safe from “active wildlife” (including bears!) as well as a far worse threat: a creepy man hanging around the scene. Is he the murderer? Or does he have other dark intentions? I’m already upset!
The film stars Starring Karina Fontes, Casey Adams, Emily Althaus, Miranda Bailey, Martin Spanjers, and John Getz. Body at Brighton Rock will debut in theaters and On Demand on April 26, 2019; check out the trailer below:
Here is the film’s official synopsis:
Wendy, a part-time summer employee at a mountainous state park, takes on a rough trail assignment at the end of the season, trying to prove to her friends that she’s capable enough to do the job. When she takes a wrong turn and ends up deep in the backcountry, she stumbles upon what might be a potential crime scene. Stuck with no communication after losing her radio and with orders to guard the site, Wendy must fight the urge to run and do the harder job of staying put — spending the night deep in the wilderness, facing down her worst fears and proving to everyone – including herself – that she’s made of stronger stuff than they think she is.
