After his huge success with his 2017 film, Dogged (read our review here), Director Richard Rowntree is up to no good once again with his latest horror/thriller, Nefarious. The home invasion horror/thriller from Ash Mountain Films focuses on a robbery that goes horribly wrong. Laden with social commentary, the film features award winning practical effects and a clever script. Nefarious hits video on demand, Blu-ray, and DVD in North America March 17 and is available for pre-order now.
Check out the trailer below, then read on for all the details!
Darren, Lou, Jo and Mas live a meager existence on the fringes of poverty. Indebted to the criminal kingpin of their social housing development, they routinely fear for their lives. On the other side of town, the already wealthy Marcus and his handicapped brother, Clive, receive a windfall in the form of a winning lottery ticket. When their worlds collide following a botched robbery, the would-be criminals get more than they bargained for and will be tested to their limits in a desperate attempt to survive a predator of monstrous proportions.
Nefarious stars Richard Rowntree, John Angdal Aamaas (Clownface 2019), Aaron Thomas Ward (Bite Size Horror 2017), Dogged alumni Toby Wynn-Davies (Escape from Cannibal Farm 2017) and Nadia Lamin (Hosts 2019), as well as newcomer Buck Braithwaite. Rowntree directed the film and co-wrote the screenplay with Matthew Davies.
Gravitas Ventures, a Red Arrow Studios company, will release the film on Amazon Prime Video, Vudu and Google Play in VOD format. The Blu-ray and DVD will be available via Amazon HERE, FYE HERE, and other retailers. There will be a screening at the prestigious Starburst International Film Festival in Manchester, UK, a few days before release.
