A few months since it's been announced that Mikhail Red's Dead Kids will be available on Netflix, the streaming site has finally dropped the official trailer to the film, set to be available this December 1!
Check out the trailer below:
The film follows a socially-awkward teen who befriends a group of misfits who are planning to kidnap and take out their rich and arrogant schoolmate. Things take a turn when their kidnapping scheme gets deadly.
In a press release released by Netflix, Director Mikhail Red described the film to be something that explores the stories of his generation. "I wanted to expose the entitlement and insecurities of a generation growing up in a country of extreme social disparity but cleverly package it as pop entertainment. For me, Dead Kids is a story of young lives running wild yet cut short with their potentials unfulfilled. It is a crime story in the age of social media and a bleak vision of the Filipino youth’s psyche. It is a commentary on the youth’s views on masculinity, morality, and vigilante justice paralleled with today’s political climate. It is both a coming-of-age story and a cautionary tale for the builders of our future,” he said.
The film, which mixes friendship, coming-of-age, thrilled, and crime, stars young Filipino actors including Sue Ramirez, Khalil Ramos, Markus Paterson, Vance Larena, and more.
Dead Kids launches on Netflix this December 1. Make sure to keep checking back here for more updates on the film.
