This Christmas director Jon Keeyes‘ (American Nightmare) supernatural thriller The Harrowing is set to premiere on VOD.
Starring genre icons Michael Ironside (Total Recall, Starship Troopers) and Arnold Vosloo (The Mummy, G.I Joe: The Rise of Cobra), the film centers on a detective (Matthew Tompkins, Sicario) haunted by the ritualistic murder of his best friend. Determined to discover the truth he goes undercover into a forensic hospital and is plunged into his own personal hell where demons might be real.
Jon Keeyes, writer and director of the film, says “We’ve carefully crafted an intelligent, suspenseful, tense thriller that will keep audiences on the edge of their seats while driving them down a road of psychological twists and turns. Right out of the gate, we pull them in with an explosive opening sequence and then keep them guessing as the mystery unfolds until we blow their minds in the final moments. Being able to construct such an intricate puzzle like this – that is both entertaining and thought-provoking – has been a joy.”
Matthew Tompkins, Producer: “The Harrowing is carefully constructed to be a powerful synergy of elements that make it one of those rare ‘elevated’ genre films with true crossover appeal to a wide variety of hardcore fans…The film is a potent mix of horror and supernatural elements that underpin a very smart, disturbing, and complicated psychological thriller…the idea of being able to drive the narrative utilizing all of these things, to truly pull that off, from both a commercial and artistic perspective, was a fantastic opportunity for us as Filmmakers.”
In addition to Ironside, Vosloo, and Tompkins, the dynamic ensemble cast also includes ‘’The Haunting of Hill House’s” Arianne Martin and Damon Carney (Hellraiser: Judgement).
The Harrowing will be available on VOD and on Demand December 25, 2018, from Clay Epstein’s Film Mode Entertainment.
