Contained thrillers are all the rage right now, but the of three people trapped at an ATM machine? How “contained” can you get? What are the logistics of something like that? Director David Brooks has your answer in ATM, a new thriller coming from IFC, and we’ve got a look at the trailer which features an ATM seemingly at the edge of the world where civilization does not exist.
Brian Geraghty, Josh Peck and Alice Eve star as three people venturing home from a party who swing by an ATM booth and become trapped inside by a killer wearing a winter parka (he’s been watching Urban Legend, it seems). The writer behind ATM, Chris Sparling, also penned Buried, starring Ryan Reynolds, so this guy likes to take people and see how they crack under the pressure of confined spaces.
Update: The film will hit VOD on March 2 and arrive in a limited theatrical release April 6.
