A trailer has been revealed for the crime thriller / slasher Johnny & Clyde, starring Megan Fox and coming to theatres and VOD this weekend
Vault director Tom DeNucci’s new film Johnny & Clyde is usually referred to as a “crime thriller”, but we’ve also heard that the story shifts gears to become a “balls-to-the-wall slasher/horror” flick. Since I have been a dedicated slasher fan since the 1980s, I’m looking forward to checking it out when it receives a theatrical and VOD release this Friday, May 5th. With the release just a few days away, a trailer for Johnny & Clyde has arrived online and can be seen in the embed above.
Scripted by DeNucci and Nick Principe, Johnny & Clyde follows the two eponymous serial killers who are madly in love and on an endless crime spree. They have their sights set on robbing a prosperous casino run by crime boss Alana and her head of security.
The film stars Avan Jogia (Zombieland: Double Tap), Ajani Russell (Betty), Tyson Ritter (Preacher), Megan Fox (Jennifer’s Body), Vanessa Angel (Kingpin), Bai Ling (The Crow), Robert LaSardo (The Mule), Armen Garo (The Departed), Sean Ringgold (American Gangster), Nick Principe (Laid to Rest), Brett Azar (Young Rock), Sydney Jenkins (Don’t Look Up), and Charles W. Harris III (Glass).
Fox’s character Alana has been described as “the devil’s daughter” and a “messed up, very dark, twisted version of a Disney princess”. Robbing Alana’s casino turns out to be a terrible idea when she traps Johnny, Clyde, and their associates in the cash room and unleashes a supernatural slasher on them. Principe, who is best known for playing the slasher ChromeSkull in the Laid to Rest movies, pulls double duty in this film, playing Johnny and Clyde’s cohort Butcher as well as the slasher.
Johnny & Clyde was produced by Chad A. Verdi, Michelle Verdi, Chad A. Verdi Jr, Paul Luba, and Nick Koskoff. Andre Relis, David Gere, J.D. Beaufils, Jessica Bennett, Mickey Guerin, Anthony Gudas, and Chelsea Vale served as executive producers. Amy Lippens, Matthew J. Weiss, and Ali Cesare are co-producers.
