17th March 2020 has been confirmed as the North American release date for the multi-award winning Nefarious, directed by Richard Rowntree. The film will be released on VOD, DVD and Blu Ray, and is now available for pre-order on iTunes HERE.
Gravitas Ventures, a Red Arrow Studios company, will also release the film on Amazon Prime Video, Vudu & GooglePlay in VOD format, and via Amazon and other retailers on Blu Ray and DVD. For those who prefer physical media, pre-orders for the Blu Ray are currently available via Target.
The home invasion horror/thriller focuses on a robbery which goes horribly wrong, and stars Toby Wynn-Davies (Escape From Cannibal Farm), Nadia Lamin (Hosts) and newcomer Buck Braithwaite. Richard Rowntree directed, from a script he cowrote with Matthew Davies (Dogged).
The independent British film received high praise and multiple awards & nominations at festivals in both the US and the UK. With a heavy emphasis on social commentary, particularly relating to economic disparity in the western world, the film features award winning practical effects and a clever script.
Nightmarish Conjurings called the film “a seat gripping journey of twists and blood filled turns”, whilst Horror Fuel said it had “a ton of entertainment value”. Ready, Steady, Cut described is as “a nasty little film, just as intended” and “a brutal little success”. It also made Modern Horrors’ list of “20 Indie Horror flicks to watch in 2020” alongside Elijah Wood’s “Come to Daddy” and Richard Stanley’s “Colour out of Space”.
It will also be screened at the prestigious Starburst International Film Festival in Manchester a few days before release.
