That’s right, he’s not just the mega-star of goofy comedies where he does strange and sometimes very annoying voices, Adam Sandler is also a movie producer, and his latest is the teen slasher “The Shortcut”. Sure, the trailer makes it look like the most generic teen slasher you’ve ever seen, but did all those teen slashers have Billy Madison jumping out of a bush and hitting the indestructible bad guy over the head with a golf club? I didn’t think so! Okay, so “The Shortcut” doesn’t have that, either, but wouldn’t it be cool if it did? Trailer and images from “The Shortcut” below.
A shortcut through the woods saved a lot of time getting to school, but no kids growing up in a suburban neighborhood dared to take it. The trail ran within sight of a scary house with an eerie old man who would accost its travelers with an ominous message to stay away.
Town legend said he was involved in the disappearances of some kids long ago. Now that some of those same kids are in their late teens, they decide to find out the truth about the old man after they learn he’s still at his game.
Starring Andrew Seeley, Shannon Woodward, Dave Franco, Josh Emerson, Katrina Bowden, Raymond J. Barry, William B. Davis, and Nicholas Elia. Directed by Nicholaus Goossen.
