From Black Fawn Films and Breakthrough Entertainment, and the team behind ANTISOCIAL, Chad Archibald’s THE DROWNSMAN is set for an iTunes and Video-On-Demand release on May 1st and a DVD/Blu-ray launch on May 12th from Anchor Bay Entertainment in the U.S. and Canada.
“We set out to make a film that created a new supernatural villain like the classic horror films of Clive Barker and Wes Craven, something that has become rare in the horror industry over the last decade,” explains writer/director Chad Archibald. “Similar to Freddy Kruger, Michael Myers, Pinhead and Jason Voorhees, we wanted to create a villain with a rich history and a juicy hook that could make an appearance in a few viewers' nightmares.”
In doing so, they accidentally open a floodgate to a dark place where none of them are safe. As Madison and her friends dive deeper into the dark history of the evil that haunts them, they’re dragged one by one to a horrifying place where they may never return.
Directed by Chad Archibald (Neverlost, Ejecta). Written by Cody Calahan (Antisocial) and Chad Archibald.
Starring Michelle Mylett (Antisocial), Caroline Korycki, Gemma Bird Matheson, Sydney Kondruss, Clare Bastable and in the horrifying title role, Ry Barrett (Neverlost, Kingdom Come, If A Tree Falls). Produced by Christopher Giroux (Antisocial, Dead All Night) and Chad Archibald.
