Tropical Cop Tales


Follow this film on GoWatchIt

Two burned-out city cops, Keymarion "Primetime" Weeyums and Demetrius "Meechie" Franks, relocate to a tropical paradise for a relaxing twilight to their careers. It ends up being the most vicious, menacing place on earth—not even slightly relaxing. Director Jim Hosking’s raucous The Greasy Strangler disgusted Midnight audiences at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, so we are hesitant (and excited) to present the world premiere of his pilot.
