SUNSET EDGE is an exquisitely crafted, meditative portrayal of disaffected youth set in a graveyard of abandoned mobile homes. Part gothic thriller, part coming-of-age tale, filmmaker Daniel Peddle’s narrative feature film debut is a Hitchcockian mash-up that upends teenage horror films. On a lazy afternoon, we follow four aimless suburban teenagers as they explore the ruins of an uninhabited trailer park. As the unsuspecting teens find escape and companionship in this ghost town-turned-amusement park, a lonesome boy lurks amongst them, unearthing clues to his horrific past.
We open SUNSET EDGE on Friday, May 29 at the Playhouse 7. The filmmaker will be there to participate in Q&A’s after the 7:50 PM screenings on Sunday, May 21 and Monday, June 1.
