Antisocial 2 is the second film to be released through the new Canadian distribution partnership among United Front Entertainment, Black Fawn Distribution, and studio Breakthrough Entertainment. “United Front Entertainment is excited to be reconnecting with the amazing team at Black Fawn Distribution and Breakthrough Entertainment to distribute the infectious sequel Antisocial 2,” states United Front Co-Founder Rob Herholz.

“It’s been a long time since we started writing the first Antisocial film back in 2012. Now, to finally see both films on DVD is something really special. Personally, I always prefer to buy a film and hold it in my hands rather than download it so it’s great to see the physical release of these films being handled by both United Front and Black Fawn Distribution. Finally fans can experience Sam’s complete journey,” says Cody Calahan, director of the Antisocial film series, Black Fawn Films.

“I think fans are going to be excited to experience the continuing story of Sam in Antisocial 2. Cody’s taken a really stripped down approach to this sequel, which directly builds on the events of the first film. These films really underline the destructiveness caused when human anxiety, mistrust, and abuse of power are combined; and it’s themes like these that make this film series worth exploring,” adds C.F. Benner, Sales Manager, Black Fawn Distribution.

Years after having her newborn child stolen from her, Sam (Mylett) searches the world infested with infected users from the Social Redroom website. After befriending a young girl named Bean, Sam is captured and locked in a facility dedicated to finding a cure for the Redroom Virus. Trapped and tortured, Sam tries to escape the facility before an impending update on the Redroom site hits 100% and unleashes its final phase of attack.
