The psychedelic horror thriller ‘Expressway to your Skull’ is the feature debut of New Jersey born and Los Angeles based filmmaker Michael Okum and tells the story of Ed and Amy, a thrill seeking couple whose impulsive trip to the woods leads them to cross paths with a psychotic survivalist named Charlie who lives in a twisted world all his own. Come on inside and watch the official trailer.
‘Expressway to your Skull’ blends elements of the occult and survival thriller genres in an intensely psychological and psychedelic story, promising a different and disturbing new take on the alone-in-the-woods theme.
Ed and Amy, a thrill-seeking couple in their 20s desperately search for a way to fix their strapped existence. Amy has just turned 23 and lost her job when Ed, her small-time drug-dealer boyfriend, comes to her with a crazy, spur-of-the-moment scheme: After ripping off a higher level drug-dealer friend for some serious cash, Ed persuades Amy to steal away from the city to the backwoods for a camping trip to cut loose and expand their minds while letting things cool down back in the city.
With a stash of drugs, backpacks and half-cocked enthusiasm, Ed and Amy hit the road. As they arrive in the woods, their idyllic three day trip slowly starts to turn into a nightmare.
The couple crosses paths with a hunter named Charlie who carries his rifle with him into their camp. At first they are only mildly suspicious of him being a threat. But as their plans for a drug-fueled getaway turn sour, they find themselves in a fight for their lives against a psychotic survivalist with a diabolical, mind-expanding scheme of his own.
‘Expressway to your Skull’, written and directed by Michael Okum, starrs Paul S. Tracey, Lindsay Atwood, Mark Aaron, Katie Royer and Clint Riffo. Premiere and release dates for the film have not been officially announced at the time of this writing.
