Raising a group of orphans and tramps to become one of the toughest gangs in Florida? It sounds crazy, but that’s exactly why Feral State works like a movie. Directed, Written and Produced by Jon Carlo (Mob Town, First we take Brooklyn), the first trailer for the crime thriller released today. You can now watch the new trailer above.
Distributed by Vertical Entertainment, Feral State. will go to VOD services and theaters in North America on May 28, 2021. Other countries will be released soon. With AnnaLynne McCord, Ronnie Gene Blevins, Octavio Pisano and others, Feral State. wants to be the thriller of the summer.
Here’s everything you need to know Feral State when the trailer’s premiere begins.
Like the synopsis for Feral State begins: “Tucked away from white sand beaches and amusement parks is one Florida that few outsiders ever see.” Mack Monroe (Blevins) brings in runaways and orphans he finds on the street looking for a home. A charismatic man, no one realizes the dark and twisted grifter they just hooked up with.
While giving these forgotten children the home they deserve, Monroe expects them to keep their agreement. Teaching his new children the art of stealing and slurping, Monroe uses his gang to take down local drug dealers and meth labs. But when a new girl arrives at the gang, can she run Monroe for his money?
Hot on the trail
Don’t think Monroe can get away with this so easily. Right on the trail of the latest gang is Detective Ellis (McCord). Fighting not only to gain respect in her police station, but also to take down Monroe’s gang, Ellis is an immersive protagonist we already have a crush on based on the trailer alone.
First time director
While this is far from Jon Carlo’s first rodeo, it’s his first time in the director’s chair. The filmmaker has written several scripts, including Mob Town & First we take Brooklyn, both directed by Danny A. Abeckaser. But then came the chance to co-direct his own script Feral State, he had to take the shot.
Now that he has tasted the director’s life, Carlo certainly wants to continue directing in the future. You can see how well Jon Carlo first fared as a director by looking Feral State in theaters or on VOD May 28.
