River Rafting Horrors Heading Our Way In #FLOAT

XYZ Films have brought more than their fair share of horror films to us bloodthirsty fans and come Dec. 8th they’ll send us all another one with #FLOAT.

If the description is accurate – it sounds like it will be an entry into the recently popular “social media influencer in peril” sub-genre of horrors. The synopsis explains:

“The film follows the young, beautiful, and full-of-life vlogger Kali (Kate Mayhew) and her pals who are heading to the river for their annual lazy river float, the first one since their friend Chuy overdosed and drowned a year earlier. But their partying suddenly takes a dark turn when a mysterious force plunges them into a life-and-death struggle, forcing them to face their own fears as they turn on each other – and proceed to die one by one.”

Zac Locke wrote and directs – if that name sounds familiar, Zac was involved in the 2019 remake of Black Christmas.

Scarlett Sperduto, Kaya Coleman, Grant Morningstar, and Christina Nguyen join the aforementioned Mayhew to round out the cast.

XYZ recently picked up the rights – and although a release date has been set, it doesn’t tell us if it’s VOD, Blu-ray, DVD, or all the above but thinking that info will be coming along soon enough. I’ll update you when it hits.
