Released:
2011
Rating:
R
Forget everything you've ever seen in a serial killer movie, and get ready for the chiller that stunned festival audiences everywhere. Notorious murderer Garrick Turrell (AJ Bowen of HOUSE OF THE DEVIL, HATCHET 2) has escaped from police custody and resumed his killing spree. His former girlfriend Sarah (Amy Seimetz of ALEXANDER THE LAST) is a recovering alcoholic trying to put her life back together in a new town with a new man (Joe Swanberg of NIGHTS AND WEEKENDS). Her past continues to haunt her and now her ex-boyfriend is leaving a trail of slaughter in his hunt to find her. From Adam Wingard, director of award-winning film POP SKULL, and screenwriter Simon Barrett (DEAD BIRDS) comes an experience that is emotionally raw, disturbingly graphic and brutally real.
