Writer-director Luke Jaden uses the vacant lots and abandoned buildings of his Detroit hometown to provide the setting for King Ripple—a sinister fairy tale about a young man whose desire to be left alone has turned him into a mass-murdering deity of sorts. Despite that, curious kids just can’t stay away.


The title character is played by Keith Stanfield, who you may recognize as the dinner party guest who freaks out when he’s photographed in Get Out.
