Lake Runs Red See More at!

The producers of “Lake Runs Red,” an independently produced

home­invasion horror feature, will release their first full trailer, an explosive vignette focusing on the film’s main antagonist, “Bruce”, expertly played by actor CJ DeVaan. It will be released via their official YouTube channel, on Tuesday July 14th, 2015.

“Lake Runs Red” is employing a unique trailer strategy for their marketing campaign. Instead of releasing a standard two minute trailer, the film is instead releasing five character trailers, each focusing on one of the main characters from the film. This is the first full trailer in a series of five, the remaining four will be released over the balance of the summer and fall.

“I think people will really respond to CJ’s performance as Bruce. As far as horror villains go, his performance is among the greats. It’s iconic. It’s volatile and nuanced. It’s mysterious. There’s more to this character’s story than meets the eye. I’m so proud of CJ. This role is going to make him a star in the Twin Cities performance community,” said director and producer Jason Riesgraf.

Added Stephanie Riesgraf, producer and unit production manager, “This trailer was really well received by our cast and crew. It was just the perfect way to introduce the world to “Bruce” and the “Lake Runs Red” narrative as a whole. Words can’t describe how excited we are. We feel strongly that these trailers are really going to raise the profile of our indie film.”
