Vital Pictures has revealed a poster that teases upon the premise of the upcoming horror film, BENEATH US. The poster is designed like a typical missing poster, but it highlights the four undocumented day laborers that go missing in the film.
Last week, the marketing team behind the film recently launched a wildposting campaign, where signs were placed around town to get people hyped for the film. The premise focused on the missing men in the film as well. Posters seemingly overnight had started popping up in cities. Men, more specifically undocumented workers had gone missing and police need the public’s help to figure out any clues to solve the mystery. Aside those signs, however, is another sign. Bright yellow calls the eye’s attention and the phrase, “Peligro. Gringos,” is bold and in caps. Beware the Gringos. Something is not as it seems. Learn more about the campaign here.
In BENEATH US, the American Dream becomes a nightmare for a group of undocumented day laborers hired by a wealthy couple (played by Lynn Collins and James Tupper). What they hope to be their biggest payday turns into a terrifying fight for survival at the couple’s secluded mansion, and those thought to be helpless must prove they can’t be discarded so easily.
The film stars James Tupper (“Big Little Lies”, “A Million Little Things”), Lynn Collins (X-Men Origins: Wolverine, Rim of the World), Rigo Sanchez (“Queen of the South”, The Record Keeper), Roberto ‘Sanz’ Sanchez (2 Fast 2 Furious, Lake Los Angeles), Thomas Chavira (“Shameless”, One of the Thousands), and Josue Aguirre (Incarnate, A New York Christmas).
The film is directed by Max Pachman (16th Street, Anonymous), who co-wrote the film alongside Mark Mavrothalasitis (Wolf in the Wild, Eden). It is produced by Luis Guerrero (You’re Not Alone, 100 Feet Below Hell), Chris Lemos (Beyond The Lights, Clay Kickers), Jay Hernandez (Suicide Squad, Friday Night Lights), and William Knochel (“Unknown Sender”, Clay Kickers).
BENEATH US will be out in theaters on March 6, 2020.
