Directing vehicle for newbie Finberg
Sounding vaguely like a set-up for a 1980’s slasher effort, the plot settles on a group of friends who come together “Big Chill”-style in the wake of their pal’s suicide. But a “bloodbath” ensues when it turns out their gathering was a set-up for retribution.
Trancas, namely Malek Akkad (who is co-producing “Hurt” with Justin Hogan and Marc Lazard), recently shepherded Rob Zombie’s Halloween redo. “Hurt” is a first-time production for Finberg and writers Grieco and Drongowski.
