Allison Williams has really discovered a new career that no one would have guessed would happen after her breakout role on the HBO comedy, “Girls.” The actress has figured out that she’s pretty good in horror-thrillers. Thanks to a scene-stealing, sociopathic role in “Get Out,” followed by whatever was going on in “The Perfection,” Williams has carved out a niche in the thriller genre that she keeps going in the upcoming “Horizon Line.”
As seen in the trailer for “Horizon Line,” Williams stars as a tourist that goes up in a small Cessna plane with her boyfriend and everything seems to be going well until the pilot has a heart attack and dies mid-flight. But what about autopilot? Broken. Maybe Williams’ character is a secret fighter pilot badass? Nope, not at all.
The film is directed by Mikael Marcimain and written by Josh Campbell and Matthew Stuecken. The latter two are probably best known for their work on “10 Cloverfield Lane.” Joining Williams in the cast is Alexander Dreymon.
“Horizon Line” doesn’t have an official release date yet, as STX Films says it’s “coming soon.” This is probably because no one quite knows if theaters will be a thing and maybe it’ll just surprise us all by showing up on VOD one day?
Here’s the synopsis:
From the creators of 10 Cloverfield Lane and The Shallows, HORIZON LINE is a thrilling survival story about two former lovers, Sara (Allison Williams) and Jackson (Alexander Dreymon) who discover new altitudes of fear aboard a single-engine Cessna plane. It was supposed to be a routine and casual 99-minute flight to their friend’s tropical island wedding. But within minutes after takeoff, their pilot suffers a fatal heart attack, leaving Sara and Jackson with no idea where they are, no comms, and no clue how to land the plane. With nothing but miles of ocean and sky in every direction, and a terrifying storm that’s about to envelop them, Sara and Jackson have only one shot – and there’s no going back.
