Austin Film Fest To Screen Neo-Noir Horror/Thriller “BLINDERS”

Friday, October 16, 2020 | News

The second feature from director Tyler Savage (Inheritance), BLINDERS stars Austin natives and UT alums Vincent Van Horn and Michael Lee Joplin as Andy and Roger, two lonely souls whose paths cross during one fateful drive. When Andy forms a blossoming connection with the beautiful Sam (Christine Ko, (“Upload”, “Dave”), Roger quickly turns obsessive with disastrous consequences. Savage, who spent four years in Austin working for Terrence Malick, directed from a script he co-wrote with Dash Hawkins, and they produced alongside J.P. Castel, Chadd Harbold, and Daniel Pisano.

Synopsis: In the wake of a messy break-up, Andy decides to start fresh, relocating from Austin to Los Angeles. Eager to make new connections, he befriends Roger, an unusual rideshare driver. But when Roger’s behavior gets too strange for comfort, Andy blows him off, choosing to focus on a budding relationship with Sam. This unhinges Roger, who begins to torment Andy, ensuring that his stay in L.A. is short-lived.
