Arrow Video has announced the release of Powell Robinson and Patrick R. Young‘s acclaimed film Threshold for this May.
 
The haunted road trip thriller made its world premiered at the Salem Horror Fest in October, followed by its European premiere at Soho Horror Film Festival in November.
 
“When a phone call from out of the blue brings Leo (Joey Millin) back into contact with his sister, Virginia (Madison West), long estranged from her family due to years of drug abuse, he arrives to find her alone in a bare apartment in the midst of an apparent overdose. After the convulsions and nausea subside, Virginia insists to Leo that she has been clean for 8 months due to the help of a mysterious group. She confides to her cynical brother that her edginess and paranoia actually stem from a sinister ritual conducted by the group that took her in at her lowest and eventually revealed themselves to be a cult. This curse bound her emotions and physical sensations to a man she has never met before.
 
With his marriage on the rocks, Leo has his own demons to face. Nonetheless, he is reluctantly persuaded by Virginia to embark on a cross-country road trip to track down this shadowy stranger under the caveat that if he’s nowhere to be found and it’s all in her head, she’ll go to rehab. However, as their date with destiny draws nearer, Leo begins to suspect his sister’s tall tale might have some substance.”
 
Threshold marks the second feature from co-directors Powell Robinson, Patrick R. Young, and producer Lauren Bates, following their debut Bastard (2015), which was shot on two iPhones over the course of a 12-day road trip with a crew of just three. The results are an inventive and compelling psychological thriller with hints of the supernatural.
 
ARROW subscribers can watch the film in the US, Canada, and in the UK on May 3, 2021. Special features will be available on the streaming service that includes a directors’ intro to the film, a directors’ and editor feature commentary, a cast and crew feature commentary, The Making of Threshold featurette, behind the scenes featurettes, and more.
