In this clever and contemporary reimagining of an ’80s slasher film, DEPARTING SENIORS takes horror tropes we know and love and turns them on their head. After being mercilessly bullied, a gay Mexican-American high schooler begins to develop strange psychic abilities, which he uses to help track down a sadistic serial killer picking off his classmates. It’s a little bit of SCREAM with some THE FURY thrown in for extra juice. But this isn’t just some basic slasher rip-off. DEPARTING SENIORS knows and understands its audience, never takes the easy way out, and delivers performances and set pieces you won’t soon forget.
