Scream Factory Bringing Spiritual Shocker The Binding to Home Video

Published

on

Showing the darker side of devotion when a religious family’s patriarch begins receiving visions of bloodshed, Gus Krieger’s The Binding is set to make you fear what you believe, and it’s soon headed home courtesy of our friends over at Scream Factory. We’ve got all the details today, including the trailer and cover art, so dig in!

From the Press Release:
Written and directed by Gus Krieger and produced by Michael Glassman and Scott Hyman, The Binding presents divine psychological horror through a modern reimagining of the Biblical tale of Abraham, who was commanded by God to bind and kill his infant son. A young minister’s wife (“Arrow’s” Amy Gumenick) attempts to reconcile her foreboding maternal instincts with her deeply religious husband (Josh Heisler) and his increasingly disturbing intentions. Is he receiving visions from God or unraveling within his own delusions of grandeur? How far will a family’s faith extend when their blind devotion means their violent destruction? Praised for its intelligent design, The Binding became a critical favorite through its celebrated performances and cerebral nuance.

Debuting on Blu-ray and DVD August 2, 2016, from Scream Factory (pre-order here), The Binding will feature a host of extras including over 20 minutes of deleted scenes, cast interviews with Amy Gumenick, Josh Heisler, and Leon Russom, a feature-length commentary track with writer and director Gus Krieger, and The Binding’s original teaser trailer.

Synopsis:
Once upon a time, God Almighty appeared before one of the chosen and commanded that he slay his own flesh and blood. Perhaps that time has come again…

Sarah Iman (Amy Gumenick; “Arrow,” “TURN: Washington’s Spies”) is a young mother and faithful minister’s wife. Her religious devotion and idyllic home life, however, are put to the ultimate test when she is forced to uncover the truth behind her husband’s horrific visions. As tensions rise and secrets come to light, Sarah soon finds herself spiraling toward a terrifying choice between faith and blood.

A tale of unthinkable horror in the tradition of Rosemary’s Baby, writer/director Gus Krieger’s journey into the darkest corners of one family’s faith features supporting performances by Leon Russom (True Grit, “Prison Break”) and Larry Cedar (The Crazies, “Deadwood”), with special guest appearances by Max Adler (“Glee”) Catherine Parker (Absentia), and Stuart Pankin (The Artist).

Special Features:

  • Over 20 minutess of deleted scenes
  • Cast interviews with Amy Gumenick (Sarah Iman), Josh Heisler (Bram Iman), and Leon Russom (Minister Uriel)
  • Commentary track with writer and director Gus Krieger
  • Teaser trailer

POLL: Who Should Direct Wan and King’s TOMMYKNOCKERS?

Published

on

It was just last month that we learned James Wan (Saw, Insidious, The Conjuring) is going to be producing a new big screen adaptation of Stephen King’s The Tommyknockers.

While I’m sad that it seems Wan will not be directing the film, I think it’s a great time to bring up the question: Well, then who the hell SHOULD?

You can find my top 3 choices below and then make sure to let us know who you think should direct James Wan’s upcoming adaptation of Stephen King’s The Tommyknockers in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

ABC mini-series’ executive producer Larry Sanitsky: “It is an allegorical tale of addiction (Stephen was struggling with his own at the time), the threat of nuclear power, the danger of mass hysteria and the absurdity of technical evolution run amuck. All are as relevant today as the day the novel was written. It is also a tale about the eternal power of love and the grace of redemption.”

Stephen King’s The Tommyknockers will be produced by James Wan (The Conjuring), Roy Lee (Stephen King’s IT) and the ABC mini-series’ executive producer Larry Sanitsky.

Synopsis:

A town in Maine that falls under the influence of a dangerous gas from an unearthed spacecraft. The gas begins to transform the people, giving them enhanced abilities, but also making them violent and subject to an alien hive mentality. One man, thanks to a steel plate in his head, is immune to the effects and tries to stop the townspeople.

Guess Who Just Snagged Wan and King’s New TOMMYKNOCKERS

Published

on

Earlier this month we passed along the exciting news that that none other than James Wan plans to bring Stephen King’s novel The Tommyknockers back to the screen.

Wan will be producing (but not at this time, directing) the film along with Roy Lee (IT) and the original ABC mini-series’ executive producer Larry Sanitsky.

And today Deadline reports Universal won the bidding war over the new adaptation, barely beating out fellow heavyweights Sony and Netflix. And thus Universal, home of the classic movie monsters, will be bringing us Wan and King’s first (and hopefully not last) collaboration.

Are you excited by this news? Do you think Universal is the right fit for this new film? Make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below or on Facebook, Twitter, and/or Instagram!

RLJE Films plans to release the movie in theaters in August 2018.

In Puppet Master: The Littlest Reich, recently divorced and reeling, Edgar (Lennon) returns to his childhood home to regroup his life. When Edgar finds a nefarious looking puppet in his deceased brother’s room, he decides to sell the doll for some quick cash at a small-town convention celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the infamous Toulon Murders. Girl-next-door Ashley (Pellicer) and his comic book shop boss, Markowitz (Franklin), join Edgar for the doomed road trip.
