A new serial killer thriller titled Squealer is launching sales in Cannes, Variety reports this afternoon. The film is Andy Armstrong’s directorial feature debut, the website notes.
In Squealer, “When a local cop and overzealous social-worker follow clues on missing persons cases around town, stomach-turning discoveries are unearthed on a pig farm, where the town butcher has been slaughtering more than livestock.”
Theo Rossi (“Sons of Anarchy”), Wes Chatham (“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2”), Tyrese Gibson (“Morbius”), Katherine Moennig (“Ray Donovan”), Ronnie Gene Blevins (“The Conjuring 3: The Devil Made Me Do It”), Danielle Burgio (“Fear the Walking Dead”) and Christina Gonzalez (“Cruel Summer”) star.
Armstrong co-wrote alongside Danielle Burgio.
“This spectacularly brutal story is actually inspired by real events,” Andy Armstrong said in a statement to Variety. “Therefore all darkness and violence in the movie is firmly grounded in reality yet leans heavily into each character’s personal eccentricities.”
