Earlier this summer, RLJE Films acquired the rights to Patrick Lussier’s Trick, a slasher-noir horror film starring House alumnus Omar Epps, and today we have the full official trailer for you to check out ahead of next month’s release. In case you missed it, October 18th will bring the movie’s theatrical debut alongside its on-demand and Digital versions, right on schedule for the season. Give the trailer a watch above and read on for more details on the film.


Trick centers on an elusive serial killer who descends upon a small town annually and is responsible for gruesome murders year after year, each seemingly unrelated. No one believes this could be the same killer, but Detective Denver has faced Trick once before, having shot and killed him, or so everyone keeps telling him. However, Denver knows Trick is still out there and he's coming back for revenge.

The film also stars fan-favorite Tom Atkins, who has appeared in countless classic horror films such as Night of the Creeps, as a character named Talbott. The cast additionally includes Ellen Adair (Homeland, Billions) as Sheriff Lisa Jayne, Kristina Reyes (Blindspot, Shades of Blue) as survivor Cheryl Winston, and Jamie Kennedy (Scream franchise, Malibu's Most Wanted) as Dr. Steven.

Patrick Lussier directs based on a script by Todd Farmer, whose credits include Jason X, The Messengers, and My Bloody Valentine. Film Bridge International produced and Chimney Group's Fredrik Zander handled post-production.

Trick will hit theaters, on-demand, and Digital just in time for Halloween on October 18th, 2019. As usual, follow Dead Entertainment for all the latest news and updates on this film and more.
