After its award-winning festival run and a limited theatrical release in Canada, Tricia Lee’s Silent Retreat has arrived in the US. As of today, September 2nd, the film is available on VOD and digital platforms all across America.
It’s been a long journey for the independently produced shocker that won Best Canadian Feature at Toronto After Dark. Shot at Kettleby Valley Camp just outside Toronto, the dedicated cast and crew lived and worked on location for two weeks.
With inventive and resourceful makeup effects, haunting cinematography, and chilling performances, Silent Retreat showcases the incredible talents of many up-and-coming Canadian filmmakers.
Audiences can find Silent Retreat online through iTunes, Google Play, YouTube, Playstation Network, Vudu, Amazon Video on Demand, Xbox, and Redbox Instant. It will be available On Demand through AT&T/U-verse, Verizon/Fios on Demand, Cox, Charter on Demand, Dish Network, Mediacom, Sudden Link, RCN, Optimum Bresnan Communications, and Frontier.
Along with today’s VOD release in the States, Black Fawn Distribution has Canadian DVDs available at its web store. A US DVD is coming soon.
Following an assault charge, in order to avoid jail time, Janey Andrews (Chelsea Jenish) is sent to a remote rehabilitation centre run by an ominous doctor (Robert Nolan) and his two sons. Janey is instructed to follow the rules of the retreat without question: No talking. No eye contact. No interaction of any kind.
It doesn’t take long for her to realize that something sinister is taking place, and with the help of a fellow inmate named Alexis (Banzhaf), the girls attempt to flee. However, despite the doctor’s deplorable motives, Janey soon discovers that something much more dangerous lurks just beyond the trees.
