In celebration of DREAD’s upcoming release, For the Sake of Vicious, we’ve crafted a #MonthOfDread that’s all about home invasion horror! What’s scarier than being trapped at home during a pandemic? Oh, I don’t know, perhaps a pack of murderous intruders trying to get inside! Give the trailer and synopsis for For the Sake of Vicious a spin below (and look for the film on VOD beginning April 20th).
An overworked nurse / single mother returns home from her late shift on Halloween night to find a maniac hiding out with a bruised and beaten hostage. When an unexpected wave of violent intruders descends upon her home, the trio realizes the only way out of the situation is to fight – together – for their survival.
Ask yourself: Are you a horror fan who lives every day like it’s Halloween? Do you have the gumption and the stamina to consume a new horror movie every day for an entire year? If so, feast your eyes on April’s 30-day horror challenge below. Let us know you’re participating by using the hashtag #YearOfDread2021 on Social Media!
