Scream Factory is best known as a reis­sue label to hor­ror fans but they’ve estab­lished a side­line in doing the occa­sion­al mod­ern hor­ror effort. March will see their most pres­ti­gious effort to date in this vein when they release Beneath in both DVD and blu-ray edi­tions. This was direct­ed by indie film­mak­er Larry Fessenden and offers a new spin on the “mon­ster from the sea” arche­type.  Both ver­sions of this title will include sev­er­al extras, includ­ing a com­men­tary track from Fessenden.  Read on for all the unearth­ly under­wa­ter details…

Bring Home Chiller Film’s Highly Acclaimed Movie

Beneath-bluPre-Order This Scream Factory™ Home Entertainment Collection Today!

There’s some­thing ter­ri­fy­ing in the waters in Black Lake, but what’s above the sur­face is just as dan­ger­ous! On March 25, 2014, SCREAM FACTORY™ will unleash direc­tor Larry Fessenden’s enthralling crea­ture thriller BENEATH on Blu-ray™ and DVD. Featuring a gen­er­al dose of sus­pense ter­ror and wicked satire, BENEATH fol­lows a group of high-school grads as they face the ulti­mate tests of friend­ship and sac­ri­fice dur­ing a ter­ror-strick­en fight for sur­vival – an alle­gor­i­cal tale about the trag­ic inabil­i­ty of peo­ple to rise above their dif­fer­ences even in the face of grave threat.

Directed by Fessenden (Wendigo, The Last Winter), the film stars Danny Zovatto (Innocence), Bonnie Dennison (Stake Land, Third Watch), Chris Conroy (Sorority Row), Jonny Orsini (Imogene), Griffin Newman (Political Animals) Mackenzie Rosman (7th Heaven) and Mark Margolis (Breaking Bad) as Mr. Parks.  Packed with spe­cial bonus con­tent, BENEATH is a must have for hor­ror movie enthu­si­asts and loy­al fans. The Blu-ray has a sug­gest­ed retail price of $19.97 and $14.93 for the DVD.

After their high school grad­u­a­tion, six teens cel­e­brate with a trip to the remote and mys­te­ri­ous Black Lake. Only Johnny seems to sus­pect there’s some­thing in the water stalk­ing the rev­el­ers as they set out in their small wood­en row­boat stocked with beer and fire­works. But why would Johnny let them go swim­ming if he knew what lurked beneath?  A sud­den attack from the depths fol­lowed by a lethal chain of events leave the teens strand­ed on the leak­ing ves­sel in the mid­dle of the lake with no oars, no way back to shore, held hostage by a men­ace that cir­cles them per­sis­tent­ly. And so the teens turn on each oth­er, and the pet­ty high school griev­ances they almost left behind prove more dead­ly than the mon­ster that waits to devour them.

Chiller Films presents a Glass Eye Pix pro­duc­tion in asso­ci­a­tion with OffHollywood Pictures. BENEATH is writ­ten by Tony Daniel and Brian D. Smith, and direct­ed by hor­ror icon Larry Fessenden (The Last Winter, Habit). Produced by Fessenden and Peter Phok for Glass Eye Pix (Stake Land, The Innkeepers, I Sell The Dead).
