Looking like a simple concept taken to pleasantly far extremes, Levan Bakhia’s Landmine Goes Click gets its UK premiere at Frightfest.

A classic tale of tourists in a place that can only spell danger, here’s the film’s official synopsis:

Three American tourists are backpacking through the remote countryside of European Georgia when one of them steps on an armed landmine. But that seems to be a minor threat compared to the nightmarish happenings the rest of the afternoon will bring on. A psychopath takes advantage of the tourist’s immobility and brutally assaults the woman he loves.

Sterling Knight is familiar to many as Chad Dylan Cooper in hit TV series MacKenzie Falls, So Random! and Sonny with a Chance, as well as for his role in Melissa & Joey. Spencer Locke is known from the massively popular Resident Evil franchise and the Spielberg/Zemeckis motion capture hit Monster House, but is also no stranger to television with work on Cougar Town. After wowing with his singing ability on Glee and Australian Idol, Dean Geyer has shown he’s also a talented actor with his leading role on US sci-fi series Terra Nova.

Landmine Goes Click is directed and produced by Georgia native Levan Bakhia who made his feature film directorial debut with the thriller 247 F starring Scout Taylor-Compton. The tense script for Landmine Goes Click is written by Adrian Colussi, known for his work on prime time Canadian shows The Jane Show and ‘da Kink In My Hair.

We’ve got the trailer here below, which ticks most of the right boxes, suggesting something that will offer up as much psychological thrills and spills as in-your-face violence.

Landmine Goes Click plays in the Main Screen on Friday, August 28.
