Here's a fun, bloody knitted style poster for Ben Wheatley's twisted dark comedy Sightseers. The story follows a guy named Chris (Steve Oram) who wanted to treat his girlfriend, Tina (Alice Lowe) to a caravan tour of the British countryside. Things seem to be going well until Chris beats a man to death with a stick! After that things seem to get even more insane. They end up going on a killing spree taking out annoying tourists. It looks hilarious, and I plan on checking it out when I'm up at Sundance later this month.
When introverted dog-lover Tina (Alice Lowe) meets would-be author Chris (Steve Oram), she dares to dream of an escape from her sheltered life and suffocating mother. In spite of mum's protests, the pair packs an RV with all the comforts of home and sets out on the open road. With a meticulously plotted journey to such destinations as the Keswick Pencil Museum and the Ribblehead Viaduct, Chris and Tina are ready for an endearingly humble adventure. But it doesn't take long for their dream of a quiet romantic getaway to fade, as rude tourists, noisy teens and crowded campsites conspire to shatter their peace.
When Chris backs their caravan over a litterbug who carelessly tosses an ice cream wrapper on the ground, the demure Tina seems surprisingly unfazed by her partner's barely concealed bloodlust. As Chris becomes increasingly emboldened in his mission to rid the world of offensive people, something is unleashed within Tina, and her wide-eyed enthusiasm for seeing the countryside transforms into a hilariously coldblooded fascination with murder. Wheatley's charmingly frumpy Bonnie and Clyde become progressively more unhinged as their erotic odyssey turns into a killing spree, testing both their relationship and their faith in each other.
There's no release date set yet, but you can watch the trailer for it below!
