Running Man is a dark yet comedic short film set in the South East of England in 1991 – the heyday of illegal raves. In an attempt to escape the ghosts of his past, Fred Love convinces his mates to take part in a clinical drug trial for cash. But events take a turn as the trial spirals into violent psychosis, forcing Fred to come face-to-face with the very thing he’s been running from.

Speaking about the film, Sadie Frost remarked “I wanted to make a film about the 90’s rave scene…I wanted it to be authentic and dark. With Johnny Cookes brilliant script and Chris Turner’s spot on direction, along with a stellar cast and a unique rave soundtrack, we have achieved something very exciting! It has been brilliant that so many festivals have reacted so well to it, and ultimately that people are drawn to it and find it an exciting and fun watch”.
We hope you enjoy the film!
