Zachary Quinto’s Serial Killer Thriller HE WENT THAT WAY Trailer Released

Vertical has just unveiled the gripping trailer for its highly anticipated thriller, “He Went That Way,” featuring powerhouse performances from Zachary Quinto of “Star Trek” fame and Jacob Elordi, known for his roles in “Saltburn” and “Priscilla.” This cinematic gem delves into the chilling true story of a renowned animal trainer who unwittingly crosses paths with a youthful and cunning serial killer.

Transporting viewers back to the year 1964, “He Went That Way” masterfully weaves a taut narrative, offering a wicked twist on the classic buddy road trip genre. The plot unfolds around 19-year-old serial killer Bobby, portrayed by the talented Elordi, who finds himself hitching a ride with the celebrity animal handler Jim, played by the enigmatic Quinto. The desolate stretches of Route 66 set the stage for a tense journey, with Jim’s prized cargo being none other than Spanky, an American TV darling chimpanzee.

As the stress between Bobby and Jim intensifies, their fiery personalities collide, turning the road into an increasingly treacherous path. The film’s synopsis paints a vivid picture of the escalating tension, emphasizing the intricate dynamics between the captor and the captive. It reads, “This film is as much about a found family as it is a volatile crime drama centered on a serial killer and his captives on the road. Quinto & Elordi draw the audience in with captivating chemistry as both performances bring out stark revelations about [each one], and the difficulty of walking with kindness while navigating a brutal world.”

Directed by the skilled Jeff Darling, “He Went That Way” boasts a stellar ensemble cast, including Patrick J. Adams, Phoenix Notary, and Ananyaa Shah. The film is poised to hit select US theaters on January 5th, 2024, before making its mark on Video On Demand (VOD) platforms starting January 12th. Brace yourself for a thrilling cinematic experience that blends elements of crime drama and found family dynamics, promising to keep audiences on the edge of their seats.
