Taking some active senior citizens to a day at the rodeo should be an easy and fun day, right? Well for Kit and Simon that is definitely not the case. When a killer on horseback appears with a hooked lasso the day takes an unexpectedly deadly turn.
As Kit and Simon are getting the seniors ready to leave a young woman comes running up to the bus screaming that they need to let her inside. As her cries get louder and more desperate the people in the bus are shocked to see a man on horseback attack her. Kit, played by Lindsey Morgan, has to get the seniors away from danger, but in the process winds up leaving Simon, Andrew Jacobs, at the rodeo. It turns out that even though she drove away that no one is safe from this deadly man with a lasso.
Lasso has a sinister feel from the very beginning. The movie actually begins with a woman tied up and trying to cut herself loose with a can lid and then we jump to the seniors coming to visit the rodeo. Even when they are at the rodeo the workers are all a bit aggressive and when two anti-rodeo protesters are spotted they are told to immediately leave, though it turns out that they don’t actually make it that far. The deaths throughout Lasso are brutal and not only is there someone with a lasso, but there are a number of people helping him kill anyone on or near the rodeo property. This indie production had a sort of cult like feel to it with the sheer number of people committing these terrible acts. This feels like a movie that fans of the Purge franchise would enjoy. You can find out more about Lasso and where you can watch on the official Lasso website.
