The ‘lo-fi, supernaturally-tinged comedy-drama’, LACE CRATER, featuring ‘an awkward twentysomething who begins to undergo some strange physical changes after a weekend tryst with a ghost,’ will open in theaters this Summer.
LACE CRATER, directed by Harrison Atkins, which premiered at the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival, will open theatrically in NYC and on VOD on July 29th, and theatrically in LA on August 5th, with a national rollout to follow.
All Ruth (Lindsay Burdge) wanted was to get away for the weekend. Escaping to the Hamptons with friends after a bad breakup, she finds an unexpected connection with Michael (Peter Vack), a stranger who shows up in her room one boozy night. They have great chemistry, and she finds herself inexplicably drawn to him. There’s only one problem: Michael’s a ghost, and a one night stand with him leaves Ruth with aftereffects that can only be described as supernatural. As she suffers through mucous-laden night sweats, glitchy hallucinations, and the occasional tar-black ooze, her friends become too disgusted to support her. Ruth must figure out for herself if she can reintegrate into society – or if she even wants to.
