Graham Skipper (Almost Human, The Mind’s Eye), Chase Williamson (John Dies at the End, Sire, The Guest), Brea Grant (Halloween II, “Heroes”), Barbara Crampton (You’re Next, Re-animator), Matt Mercer (Contracted), Justin Welborn (FX’s “Justified”, The Signal, V/H/S/ Viral), Henry LeBlanc (“The Tonight Show with Jay Leno”), Jesse Merlin (FDR: American Badass), David Bruckner (co-director of V/H/S, The Signal), Sara Malakul Lane (Kickboxer: Vengeance, Sunchoke), and Pierson Ryan (“Red Team Go”) star.
Two estranged brothers reunite seven months after their father’s disappearance to liquidate his anemic video store. While there, they unearth an old VCR board game that acts as an inter-dimensional hub to a nightmare world where their father’s soul is trapped and can only be saved by playing the game.
The film is an adventure horror that pays loving tribute to the VHS format, video stores, and board games of the era.
