Trailer: Rosewood Lane (2012)

Coming this fall on Blu-Ray and DVD from Victor Salva (the director of Jeepers Creepers) is Rosewood Lane.

The film features Rose McGowan, Lesley-Anne Down, Rance Howard, Bill Faberbakke and Ray Wise.

And the incredible Lin (Insidious) Shaye!

Doc is a fan of Victor Salva’s Jeepers Creepers films, hoping the director can reproduce the fun, jolts and scares those films had with this thriller. Bringing back Ray Wise is a bonus and including Lin Shaye can never hurt. Rose McGowan has been appearing on the final season of Nip/Tuck that Doc’s been catching up on over at Netflix instant watch, so that’s a bonus as well. Interesting (if not controversial) director, great cast, if only the trailer delivered as much. Based on the trailer, Rosewood Lane could end up becoming yet another riff on the House at the End of the Street killer-on-the-loose story and that may not hold interests. Still, it shows glimpses of hope that it may also be very tense and thrilling. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.

The plot outline from the official Rosewood Lane Facebook page:

Follow Rose McGowan as she plays Doctor Sonny Blake, a radio talk show psychiatrist, when she moves back to her childhood home after her alcoholic father dies. Once back in her old neighborhood she discovers the local paperboy is a frightening and cunning young sociopath that targeted her father and now targets her. When the boy starts calling her show and recites eerie nursery rhymes, an unnerving game of cat-and-mouse begins. When the game escalates, she suddenly finds herself in a terrifying all out war, one that forces her to redefine her ideas of good and evil, and has her fighting to stay alive.
