“Rumspringa,” a horror short shot completely on location in Oklahoma, will have its world premiere online on Halloween October 31, 2020 after a private screening at Circle Cinema in Tulsa, Oklahoma.
Shot in early September, the five and half minute film stars newcomers Odra Chapman and Collin Stevens, and is designed to attract investor funding for a full-length feature to be shot entirely in Oklahoma in 2021. The feature will star a number of recognizable Hollywood faces, as well asserting as the launching pad for quite a few up-and-coming young talents.
Not just your run-of-the-mill “Dead Teenager” movie, the horror film (with a generous helping of wicked dark humor) will follow the adventures of a group of Amish teenagers from Abel County, Indiana, as they embark on their Rumspringa (a rite of passage for Amish youth of both sexes to determine whether they want to remain part of the Amish world, or leave), only to find themselves being stalked by the Grim Reaper Killer of folklore and legend. And end up getting murdered in a variety of fiendishly clever and extremely gruesome ways.
“Rumspringa” was directed by John Putman from a screenplay by Shannon Edwards and John Putman.
