Once you're on Wyatt's property, each step could be your last. Following its world premiere in January at the Sundance Film Festival and now screening at SXSW, Mickey Keating's Carnage Park has been acquired for US distribution by IFC Midnight.

News of the Carnage Park deal comes from Variety. Theatrical and VOD release dates have yet to be revealed, but we'll keep readers updated on further announcements.

Synopsis: "The year is 1978. A team of wannabe crooks botch a small-town bank heist and flee with their hostage deep into the California desert, where they inexplicably find themselves in a harrowing fight for survival against a psychotic ex-military sniper."

Daily Dead's Heather Wixson covered the Sundance Film Festival and had the chance to review Carnage Park and interview writer/director Mickey Keating and star Ashley Bell. To read Heather's coverage, visit:
