It’s been many months since we’re heard any news about Gabriel Cowan’s sci-fi thriller Growth, but thanks to Anchor Bay Entertainment that’s about to change as they’ll be releasing the film onto DVD this September 7th.
From the Press Release:
A frightening excursion into science gone haywire, Growth features such genre favorites as Mircea Monroe (the upcoming Tekken), Christopher Shand (“True Blood”), Nora Kirkpatrick (“Greek”), Brian Krause (Sleepwalkers, “Charmed”), Alexi Wasser (Cabin Fever 2: Spring Fever), Ian Patrick Williams (Re-Animator, Superhero Movie), and Richard Riehle (Office Space, Hatchet). The film promises an unforgettable journey into the next level of terror!
Written and directed by Gabriel Cowan (Breathing Room), Growth begins in 1989, when a breakthrough in advanced parasitic research on Kuttyhunk Island gives scientists a jump in human evolution, endowing subjects with heightened physical and mental strength. But the experiment went horribly wrong, producing a lethal parasite that mysteriously killed off three quarters of the island’s population, with the survivors fleeing for their lives.
Twenty years later, Jamie Akerman (Monroe), who lost her mother in the outbreak, returns with her boyfriend (Krause), step-brother, and best friend to sell the family property. Once there, they uncover the key to Jamie’s disturbing past and the horrifying secrets long suppressed by the town’s leader Larkin (Riehle). When the past seems to be finally buried, a new strain of parasite emerges and threatens the island once again. They can slither into – or out of – any orifice in the human body. The final step in evolution has begun…
