HALLOWEEN Meets HUNGER GAMES As THE FURIES Hits DVD in March
Described as Halloween meets the Hunger Games, first-time writer-director Tony D’Aquino’s Australian slasher movie The Furies hits DVD in March.
The film follows rebellious high school students Kayla and her best friend Maddie who are stalked and abducted by a sinister presence while out bombing their neighborhood with graffiti. Waking up, in the woods, bound and disoriented in a claustrophobic coffin-like apparatus, Kayla’s first thought is of Maddie. Before she has a chance to ruminate on the dreadful fate that may have befallen her friend, Kayla notices a terrifying masked man fast approaching, armed with a razor-sharp axe. As a chase ensues, it soon becomes clear that Kayla and her pursuer are not alone. There are six more young women, each with a masked stalker assigned to them, hell-bent on murder. If that girl dies, so does the stalker – retinal cameras implanted in their eyes are unwilling players in a deadly game. As the threat of more killer closes in, she races to save as many girls as she can. But when the girls turn on each other, Kayla’s killer instinct in unleashed and she does whatever it takes to survive and seek revenge on her abductors.
Written and directed by first-time filmmaker Tony D’Aquino The Furies stars Airlie Dodds, Linda Ngo, Taylor Ferguson, Ebony Vagulans, Danielle Horvat, Jessica Baker, Kaitlyn Boyé, Harriet Davies, Steve Morris, Ben Toyer, and Leon Stripp. It hits DVD on March 3, 2020.
