Tone-Deaf Synopsis

After losing her job and imploding her latest dysfunctional relationship, millennial Olive leaves the city for a weekend of peace in the country, only to discover the shockingly dark underbelly of rural America. She rents an eccentric, ornate country house from Harvey, an old-fashioned widower who’s struggling to hide his psychopathic tendencies. Soon two generations collide with terrifying results in this home invasion horror film that is also a darkly comedic critique of the bizarre cultural and political climate that currently exists.

Richard Bates, Jr. wrote and directed Tone-Deaf. It stars Robert Patrick (Terminator II 1991), Amanda Crew (The Haunting In Connecticut 2009), Kim Delaney (NYPD Blue TV series), Hayley Marie Norman (Hancock 2008), and Ray Wise (Twin Peaks TV series).

Tone-Deaf comes to theaters August 23, 2019 from Saban Films.

This could be fun! Robert Patrick is great in everything, and I hear he’s super over the top in this. I couldn’t find a trailer, but I’ll be sure to post one as soon as it’s available.
