Years ago I saw an indie thriller called roadside and declared that it’s director would go on to do great things. Yes, that is a declaration I use a lot. Yes, I am aware that I said the same thing about the Chinese food delivery guy, but Frank has gone on to great things! And once again I was right. Eric’s new flick ‘Get the Girl’ is set to hit the big screen at the end of the month courtesy of Orion Films. Judging from the trailer and plot it feels like England has taken a step away from the horror world (check out his last flick Contracted. Body horror at it’s finest.) and is venturing in the world of crime/comedy. Which is A-Okay with me. Check out the poster and trailer below and check back here for an interview with Mr. England later this month.
GET THE GIRL
Distribution Company: Orion Pictures
Theatrical Release Date: January 27, 2017
Written and Directed by: Eric England

In GET THE GIRL, a wealthy young man is conned into staging a fake kidnapping in order to be a hero and win the affection of a girl he’s madly in love with. But when one of the hired kidnappers is accidentally killed during the charade, he’s forced to actually save her life while not revealing that it’s been a ruse all along.
