(: … Finally Thomas Dekker ‘JAck Goes HomE’ Film TRAILER Comes
Thomas Dekker’s ‘Jack Goes Home’ Channels ‘Psycho,’ ‘The Shining’
Heading to AFM is A Nightmare On Elm Street star Thomas Dekker’s directorial debut, Jack Goes Home, which stars Rory Culkin as a young adult who returns home to his mother, only to go mad. The title is a clear reference to The Shining, while the story touches on Psycho quite a bit.
We have the sales trailer for the film, which looks pretty cheap (I can’t tell if it’s color-corrected yet). It starts off really bad but ramps up and actually looks like a taught thriller. I’m actually pretty stoked to check it out – and it also features Insidious‘ Lin Shaye as well as Britt Robertson, Nikki Reed, Daveigh Chase and even Natasha Lyonne. That’s what I call pulling some sick favors.
“Jack is an educated and well versed magazine editor living in Los Angeles. He is mid Grappling with the natural release of his childhood and the promise of his forthcoming adulthood, he is hit hard by the news of car crash, his father has perished while his mother has survived. He returns to his hometown of Denver, Colorado to nurse his mother through her physical and emotional injuries. During his stay at home, he uncovers long buried secrets and lies within his family history, his parents, his friends and his very identity. Jack’s journey to the truth is fueled by madness, sexuality, hauntings and violence.”
For Jack, there truly is NO PLACE LIKE HOME.”
