On August 23, Saban Films will be releasing Tone Deaf, which made its world premiere earlier this year at SXSW. Coming to limited theaters and On Demand, we’re here to bring you the exclusive first look at the film’s poster, which boasts Terminator 2 star Robert Patrick standing behind Amanda Crew, brandishing a hammer and an axe. There’s clearly a playfulness to this poster, which is heavily dominated by bright red and and the cheeky tagline, “The struggle is real”.
“After losing her job and imploding her latest dysfunctional relationship, Olive (Amanda Crew) flees the city for the weekend, escaping to the countryside for some peace and self-reflection. She rents an ornate country house from an eccentric widower named Harvey (Robert Patrick). Soon two generations collide with terrifying results as Olive awakens Harvey’s homicidal tendencies and is plunged into a blood-soaked fight for her life. More than your average slasher film, TONE-DEAF provides a dark critique of the bizarre cultural and political climate that currently exists.“
Written and directed by Richard Bates Jr., Tone Deaf stars Robert Patrick, Amanda Crew, AnnaLynne McCord, Keisha Castle-Hughes, and Ray Wise.
