Play Time Is Over! Momentum Pictures Brings the Horror to Boarding School

Jacob Is Having A Bad Day!

Boarding School is heading our way this August, a new horror film from director Boaz Yakin featuring Will Patton and Samantha Mathis. The film feels like a bizarre cross between a YA adaptation and Suspiria – complete with an “R” rating for disturbing violent content, bloody images, some sexual material, and language. The trailer looks promising. Check it out below along with a few killer images. More details as they come available.

Directed and Written by Boaz Yakin

Starring Will Patton, Samantha Mathis, Luke Prael, Sterling Jerins, Nadia Alexander, Tammy Blanchard, Lucy Walters

When troubled 12-year-old Jacob Felsen is sent away to boarding school, he enters every kid’s worst nightmare: A creepy old mansion deserted except for six other teenage misfits and two menacing and mysterious teachers. As events become increasingly horrific, Jacob must conquer his fears to find the strength to survive.
