I saw Michael Biehn this past weekend at Wizard World Philadelphia and he was promoting his directorial debut , which also happens to be a violent horror film. So it seems the actor/director is taking his career into somewhat new territory. Anchor Bay Entertainment has released the DVD trailer and cover art for Stevan Mena’s horror thriller Bereavement, which stars Biehn and lands on Blu-ray & DVD August 30, 2011.
There’s nothing worse than when a parent loses a child to kidnapping. But what if the kidnapper wants to be their new parent, and teach them everything they know about…murder? On August 30th, Anchor Bay Entertainment presents Stevan Mena’s Bereavement on Blu-ray and DVD.
The highly-anticipated prequel to the 2005 cult hit Malevolence, Bereavement stars Michael Biehn, John Savage, Alexandra Daddario and Brett Rickaby.
In 1989, six-year-old Martin Bristol (Spencer List) was kidnapped from his backyard swing in Minersville, PA. Graham Sutter (Rickaby), a psychotic recluse, kept Martin imprisoned on his derelict pig farm, forcing him to witness and participate in unspeakable horrors. Chosen at random, his victim’s screams were drowned out by the rural countryside.
Martin’s whereabouts would have remained a mystery, until 17-year-old Allison Miller (Daddario) comes to live with her Uncle Jonathan (Biehn). While exploring her new surroundings, Allison discovers things aren’t quiet at the farmhouse down the road. What started as an innocent exercise in satisfying her curiosity will soon disturb a hornet’s nest of evil and despair. For everyone involved, there can only be two outcomes: bereavement or death!
Bonus features on the Bereavement Blu-ray and DVD include audio commentary by writer/director Mena, a behind-the-scenes featurette, deleted scenes, and the theatrical trailer.
