Tricia Hawn in True Story Robbery Thriller ‘The Surprise Visit’ Trailer
“We have to do this now!” Vertical Ent. has released an official trailer for The Surprise Visit, a “based on a true story” robbery thriller from filmmaker Nick Lyon. This is arriving on VOD in a few weeks if anyone is curious. A robbery goes wrong, leaving two young drug addicts to make a difficult decision: to give up, or to do the unthinkable and kill. “The film is an American tragedy. I chose to tell The Surprise Visit in a gritty and realistic style that was complemented by deep and intense performances from the talented cast. Beyond the film’s thriller veneer, it [also] delivers incredibly dramatic performances, that to this day still send chills through me,” the director states. Starring Eric Roberts, Tricia Hawn, Rob Riordan, Jacqi Vene, and Serah Henesey. This looks pretty bad, and the shoddy performances seen here aren’t helping much either.
Here’s the official trailer (+ new poster) for Nick Lyon’s The Surprise Visit, direct from YouTube:
When a young couple makes a surprise visit to Mom, they get an even bigger surprise themselves from an old family friend who plans to steal Mom’s valuable jewelry while she is out of town. But when the “easy peasy” robbery goes wrong, resulting in the accidental death of the daughter’s husband, it forces the two young drug addicts to make a difficult decision; to abandon ship, or do the unthinkable. The Surprise Visit is directed by American indie filmmaker Nick Lyon, director of many films including Fallen Angels, Rise of the Zombies, Bullet, Hercules Reborn, Isle of the Dead, The Boy the Dog and the Clown, and The Rebels of PT-218. The screenplay is by Stephen Meier, from a story by Serah Henesey and Nathan Cowles. Vertical opens The Surprise Visit in select US theaters + on VOD starting January 14th, 2022. Who’s interested?
