IFC Midnight's THE CLOVEHITCH KILLER Trailer Showcases A Familial Killer

Summer of ‘84 posited the question “what if a serial killer was your neighbor” and A Good Marriage asks ‘what if your husband was a murderer’ and now IFC Midnight’s The Clovehitch Killer asks ‘what if your father was an infamous serial killer who never got caught?’

Mixing this premise with the true crime obsession that has taken over the nation, The Clovehitch Killer looks to be a chilling story about a boy who must question if his father is truly who he says. Written by Christopher Ford, one of the scribes for Cop Car and Spider-Man: Homecoming, the film certainly has a strong script in store. Find the trailer and full synopsis below and keep your eyes open for the tense thriller, hitting November 16th.
