Here’s the thing… when it’s snowing out, the entire outside world can go to hell. We’re staying warm in our offices listen to metal playlists on Spotify and drinking mass quantities of booze. Still, some do venture out, and they usually end up getting what’s coming to ‘em!
The Guide makes its DVD debut February 25th from Monarch Home Entertainment. Read on for the details!
Written and directed by John Meyers, The Guide stars Don Scribner (Killing Lincoln, Heaven Burns), Stephanie Leone, Jan-David Soutar (HBO’s “The Wire” and the award-winning film Roulette), Clayton Myers, and Nicholas Russell.
When a distraught woodsman reluctantly agrees to guide two New Yorkers on a deer hunt in the frozen wilderness of December’s northwestern Maine, his sanity begins to slip away as the wreckage that his buck hunting set in motion a year before catches up with him.
This hunt would have been like so many others for master buck tracker and guide Joe Dawkins. An inexperienced and unworthy hunter named Greg has traveled hundreds of miles to be led into the wilderness to bag a deer. Except this time, at an abandoned logging camp, the hunter becomes the hunted.
Haunted by guilt over his wife’s sudden death a year earlier, Joe is on the brink of madness. On his way to rendezvous with Greg, a New York lawyer whose failures at his firm fuel a selfish obsession for advancement, Joe unexpectedly discovers in a poverty-stricken distant mill town that his only child, Jenna, has fallen into an abyss of meth addiction in a down country mill town under the thumb of a violent dealer. Saving her becomes the only purpose remaining for Joe’s life. Yet, when he gets on the track of the very same buck that eluded him a year before, it leads him to a place where his darkness of mind puts Greg’s inexperience in the wilderness to the ultimate test of survival as Joe’s tortured soul seeks a vicious end — or redemption.
