Montreal’s 2018 Fantasia International Film Festival gets underway on July 12th and runs through August 1st. Screening during the opening weekend gala event is Summer of 84, from Roadkill Superstar (RKSS).
RKSS is the same team that wrote and directed Turbo Kid. The team consists of François Simard, and brother and sister Anouk Whissell and Yoann-Karl Whissell, and they directed Summer of 84.
I hate writing the title of this awesome sounding and titled movie for the mere fact that “84” is written wrong; it requires an apostrophe in front of the 8 to replace the “19” that isn’t showing. Nonetheless, I don’t think it will affect my enjoyment of the film.
Summer of 84 Synopsis:
Summer, 1984: The perfect time to be 15 years old and care free. But when neighborhood conspiracy theorist Davey Armstrong begins to suspect his police officer neighbor might be the serial killer all over the local news, he and his three best friends begin an investigation that soon turns dangerous.
Outside of Fantasia, Summer of 84 will hit theaters on August 24, 2018. The movie stars Graham Verchere, Judah Lewis, Caleb Emery, Cory Gruter-Andrew, Tiera Skovbye, and Rich Sommer.
