Fango got word about a pair of independent features spotlighting different kinds of crazy heading for big screens in the coming months. One, Morgan J. Freeman’s HOMECOMING, is played straight, while Luke Ricci’s HOW TO BE A SERIAL KILLER is pitched as a gruesome satire.
In HOMECOMING, Freeman (no relation to the similarly named actor) returns to the bad-girl territory he previously explored in AMERICAN PSYCHO II: ALL AMERICAN GIRL. Mischa Barton stars as Shelby, a small-town girl and former homecoming queen who’s just a tad upset when her former beau Mike (Matt Long) comes home from college for Christmas break with his new girlfriend Elizabeth (THE HILLS HAVE EYES II’s Jessica Stroup). Shelby wants Mike back for herself, and embarks on a campaign of terror to get Elizabeth out of the picture. Paper Street Films opens HOMECOMING in New York and LA on July 17, and expands the release in the subsequent weeks. A website will be open soon here.
