New stills highlight the faces of “BLACK ROCK”Movies/TV,News Samuel Zimmerman
Katie Aselton’s sophomore feature, the survival horror tale BLACK ROCK, sees the actress and co-stars Lake Bell and Kate Bosworth have a rough go of it on an island off the coast of Maine. These new close-up heavy stills tell some of their story in bruises, scratches, aggression and fear.
In BLACK ROCK, “three young women—Sarah (Kate Bosworth), Abby (Katie Aselton) and Lou (Lake Bell)—get together for a private campout at one of the iconic settings of their childhood, an empty island off of Maine, to renew their bond of sisterhood. They quickly learn, though, that the island is anything but empty, when they encounter three recently-returned servicemen, who have come to the island to hunt. A misunderstanding quickly turns to tragedy, and the three women soon find themselves the targets of the hunt. What started as a simple getaway to recall old times is now a race for survival as three ordinary woman must find extraordinary strength in order to beat the odds against violence and the elements.”
BLACK ROCK is On Demand and in select theaters May 17. For more on the film, see Fango #323 (on sale now) for a chat with Aselton, and keep an eye out for our review later this week when it hits the Stanley Film Festival.
