Summary
The Horrific Story inspired by true events ... Ti West's Trigger man leads the charge in a new wave of stripped-down, scary movies fueled by seat-of-the-pants filmmaking ingenuity. Reggie, Sean, and Ray leave Manhattan for a day trip of deer hunting in Delaware, expecting to drink a few beers in the woods free of the city-life responsibilities that are slowly forcing the childhood friends apart. But with one well-aimed shot, a walk in the sun is transformed into a frantic and desperate fight for survival, as Trigger man morphs from a character-driven rural amble into a "smartly compact and radical survival thriller (Variety). Writer, director, and editor Ti West (The roost, Cabin fever II) expertly exploits audience expectations, using minimalist handheld photography to relentlessly build tension to "a genuinely terrifying payoff (New York Sun). Presented in association with home-grown, low-budget shock maestro Larry Fessenden's Scareflix, from its "smartly written" (New York Times) script, to its down-to-the-bone verité look, Trigger man is an "uncommonly naturalistic terror tale (Village voice) loaded with "no nonsense craft and dramatic efficiency (Time Out New York).
