A lit­tle home video news for thriller fans: Shout Factory will kick off July by import­ing a British thriller enti­tled Tower Block to home video. It’s a taut lit­tle item that focus­es on what hap­pens when the last ten­ants left in an English apart­ment tow­er are tar­get by a mys­te­ri­ous sniper. Said assassin’s moti­va­tion has to do with a mur­der that hap­pened at the loca­tion, a crime that none of the ten­ants would admit to see­ing or hear­ing. Shout! Factory is releas­ing the film on both blu-ray and DVD. Each ver­sion will fea­ture an anamor­phic trans­fer plus spe­cial fea­tures. Read on for all the ter­ror-tow­er details…

One tow­er block. Fifteen ten­ants. One sniper. Can any­one get out alive?

FROM SHOUT! FACTORY

Hear no evil, speak no evil, see no evil. In a decrepit tow­er block, a young man runs for his life from two hood­ed fig­ures. Exhausted, he runs through the cor­ri­dor, bang­ing on doors and shout­ing for help – “Please! Somebody help me!”  But no one has respond­ed to his cries for help, only the sound of secu­ri­ty chains bolt­ing doors, deny­ing him res­cue.

Resident Becky Hardman turns off her hall light and ner­vous­ly peers through the peep­hole in her door. Terrified, Becky stands in her flat as the sound of a vicious beat­ing rains down on the young man. Becky just can’t let this hap­pen – she rush­es out to con­front the thugs and hits one of them in the back. One of the thugs punch­es her hard across the face, drop­ping her instant­ly. The young man is being dragged into the dark stair­case, bru­tal­ly mur­dered by the thugs…

One year lat­er, some­one has tak­en jus­tice into their own hands. Witness the ter­ri­fy­ing per­ils and sus­pense as the­se res­i­dents of Tower Block 31 Serenity House fight for their sur­vival in the acclaimed British action-thriller TOWER BLOCK, arriv­ing on Blu-ray™ and DVD July 2, 2013 from Shout! Factory.

SYNPOSIS

The res­i­dents of Tower Block 31 are ter­ri­fied after wit­ness­ing the bru­tal mur­der of a young man. The case is left unsolved, due in large part to their col­lec­tive silence. A year lat­er, with their build­ing marked for demo­li­tion, the wit­ness­es begin to find them­selves picked off one by one by a mys­te­ri­ous sniper out for jus­tice. Pitted again­st not only the sniper’s dead­ly traps, but also each oth­er, the res­i­dents must fig­ure out a way to escape their own building…or die try­ing.

Featuring crit­i­cal­ly hailed per­for­mances by Jack O’Connell (300: Rise Of An Empire) and Sheridan Smith (Quartet) and co-star­ring Ralph Brown (Stoker), and Russell Tovey (BBC’s Being Human), Tower Block is a pulse-pound­ing thriller that deliv­ers grit­ty action and relent­less sus­pense!
