In Departing Seniors, after an act of bullying sends kind but awkward high school senior Javier to the hospital he begins having psychic visions that reveal the horrifying truth behind a rash of supposed suicides at his school. It is now up to him and his sarcastic best friend Bianca to unmask a serial killer who’s targeting hi classmates before it’s too late.

As fiercely anarchic as it is genuinely heartfelt, DEPARTING SENIORS is Scream for the next generation, deftly melding true terror with coming-of-age pathos inside the horrors of high school.

Cooney brings the Jose Nateras screenplay to life with the help of cinematographer Jason Chiu and a superb cast led by Ignacio Diaz-Silverio, the lead in recently announced Amazon series Primo, Yani Gellman (Pretty Little Liars), Lorena Diaz (Chicago Med), Ireon Roach (Candyman), and Cameron Scott Roberts (The Walking Dead).
