'Get Duked!': Release date, plot, cast, trailer and all you need to know about the horror-comedy coming to Amazon Prime
The horror-comedy is directed and written by Ninian Doff. Here are all the details
'Get Duked!' was originally titled 'Boyz In The Wood' and initially premiered in 2019. In March 2019, it played at the Southwest Film Festival in the United States and on June 19, 2019, it played at the Edinburgh International Film Festival. The horror-comedy is set to make its debut on Amazon Prime and chronicles a camping trip of four teenagers in the Scottish Highlands, where the team struggles to survive as they become hunters' targets. Here is what we know of the release:
'Get Duked' premieres on August 28, 2020.
The Amazon Studio synopsis reads, "Dean, Duncan, and DJ Beatroot are teenage pals from Glasgow who embark on the character-building camping trip — based on a real-life program — known as the Duke of Edinburgh Award, where foraging, teamwork, and orienteering are the order of the day. Eager to cut loose and smoke weed in the Scottish Highlands, the trio finds themselves paired with straight-laced Ian, a fellow camper determined to play by the rules."
"After veering off-path into remote farmland that's worlds away from their urban comfort zone, the boys find themselves hunted down by a shadowy force hell-bent on extinguishing their futures. From writer-director Ninian Doff — making his feature debut after a slew of award-winning music videos and short films for artists including Run the Jewels, Miike Snow, Migos, and Mykki Blanco — comes an anarchic satire of generational politics, hip-hop loving farmers and hallucinogenic rabbit droppings that pits the youth of tomorrow against the status quo of yesterday."
