AFM ’08: John Carpenter’s Riot & Horror Updates!

ON is attending the American Film Market and supplied us with this first look at a promo poster for John Carpenter’s Riot, starring Nicolas Cage.

Previously titled “Scared Straight,” the prison thriller follows a troubled youth who’s sent to prison off the “Scared Straight” crime-prevention program, which imprisons delinquent teens for a short period in the hopes of deterring them from a life of crime. While the teen is there, a riot breaks out and the prisoners take him hostage. A lifer, played by Cage, is forced to help the young man out.
