We've been excited for Daily Dead readers to see Summer of 84 ever since Heather Wixson called it a "brutally fun and heartbreaking blast from the past" in her Sundance review. With Gunpowder & Sky releasing the Summer of 84 this August, the wait is nearly over, and a new clip that was unveiled this past weekend at Comic-Con has now been released online, giving horror fans another look at the nostalgia-fueled film.

Synopsis: "Summer, 1984: The perfect time to be 15 years old and care free. But when neighborhood conspiracy theorist Davey Armstrong begins to suspect his police officer neighbor might be the serial killer all over the local news, he and his three best friends begin an investigation that soon turns dangerous."

Directed by RKSS from a screenplay by Matt Leslie and Stephen J. Smith, Summer of 84 stars Graham Verchere, Judah Lewis, Caleb Emery, Cory Gruter-Andrew, Tiera Skovbye, and Rich Sommer. Gunpowder & Sky will release Summer of 84 in US theaters on August 10th, followed by a VOD and Digital HD release on August 24th.
