Vertical Entertainment has announced the release of Steven Grayhm’s The Secret of Sinchanee. Grayhm stars opposite Green Beret and former NFL player Nate Boyer (“Mayans M.C”) and Tamara Austin (“The Walking Dead”), who play Boston homicide detectives lured to a small-town after the disappearance of a single mother. The Secret of Sinchanee also stars breakout Netflix child star Laila Lockhart Kraner (“Gabby’s Dollhouse”), Jacob Schick (American Sniper, A Star Is Born), and Rudy Reyes (“Generation Kill”). The Secret of Sinchanee was produced by Steven Grayhm and Nate Boyer under their Team House Studios banner and Grayhm directed from his own script. Joe Newcomb (Dallas Buyers Club) served as executive producer through Truth Entertainment.
Synopsis for The Secret of Sinchanee
An industrial tow truck driver suffering from insomnia returns to his childhood home after the untimely death of his father, to discover that a paranormal presence has been living in the house and haunting the sacred land it was built on.
“We’re very excited to be partnering with Steven and his skilled filmmaking team on his first feature film and to bring a new chilling experience to horror/thriller fans,” said Josh Spector, SVP of Acquisitions at Vertical Entertainment. “We look forward to audiences feeling the same gripping suspense we did when we first saw the film as they truly experience The Secret of Sinchanee.”
“This is a deeply personal film that tackles incredibly challenging themes of xenophobia, childhood trauma, and mental health issues, testing the confines of the horror/thriller genre.” Grayhm shared of his first feature.
Of his work with the first-time director, Newcomb said, “Steven is one of the most exciting emerging filmmakers: both as an original storyteller and a producing partner committed to diversity and veteran empowerment. Sinchanee is shockingly beautiful and absolutely terrifying!”
Following a string of awards on the international festival circuit, The Secret of Sinchanee will be available in select theaters and on all major digital and cable platforms on October 8, including Apple TV, Amazon Prime Video, Vudu, Comcast, Spectrum, Cox, and more.
