Exclusive: No Good Deed Goes Unpunished in New Poster for THE SAMARITANS

The microbudget horror feature The Samaritans aims to deliver top-tier terror when it arrives on various VOD platforms beginning April 16th. Things go off the rails when a nefarious entity decides to join a jovial game of spin the bottle. You can check out the synopsis and trailer and the bottom of the article.

But first, it’s our pleasure to exclusively shared the poster for The Samaritans, where the supernatural/demonic vibes are front and center Have a look-see:

The Samaritans tells the story of four co-workers who get together to finish a project at their manager’s home. They haven’t actually met face to face and they discover they have more in common than the new App they are perfecting. As they piece together their histories, they realize that each of them has a deadly secret that could reveal a way out or seal their fates. Their pasts have provoked a vengeful force to show them the errors in their ways. The home they have been summoned to becomes their court and their prison. Can they prove that history doesn’t repeat itself? Can they redeem themselves before time runs out? Will they figure out their fateful bond before revenge has its way with them?

The Samaritans is written and directed by Doug Bollinger; the film stars Keith Collins, Annelise Nielsen, and Timothy Laurel Harrison.

Statement from the Filmmakers:
We (like most filmmakers) believe that our film is different. It is not different because of the content (which we do think is pretty darn good). It stands alone in a crowded field of indie horror/thriller because of how we did it. This film could be marketed as the “next big thing” or “scary” or “creepy” but that would be just like any other marketing campaign. It is all of those things but the fact it was made in such little time for such little money is very rare.

Six people. One weekend. Two rooms. That’s all it took for The Samaritans team to shoot this micro-budget thriller. The tense mood was created with one light, four actors, and no more than three takes on any setup. The creative team consists of Doug Bollinger, Keith Collins, Cory Green, and Matt Grego. The entire feature film was shot in a four-day weekend. This intrepid group of dedicated filmmakers did nothing but eat, sleep, and shoot to create what is sure to be one of the most talked about indie thrillers of the year.
