A family’s road trip takes a dangerous turn when they arrive at a secluded mobile home park to stay with some relatives and find it mysteriously deserted. Under the cover of darkness, three masked psychopaths pay them a visit to test the family’s every limit as they struggle to survive.
Dwayne Johnson’s Rampage trailer isn’t monkeying around
I spent hours and hours playing Rampage on my SEGA Master System as a kid, even though the whole endeavour of destroying buildings and eating people was pretty darn repetitive. But fun! And that’s what the trailer for the film adaptation looks like its going for. Is it horror? Who’s to say? Rampage hits theaters April 20oth, 2018.
