This Day in Horror: Happy Birthday William Baldwin
Although horror isn’t a staple of his extensive filmography, horror fans who came of age in the 1980s and 1990s will always remember William Baldwin for his performance in Flatliners. The actor will return to horror later this year when 2 Graves in the Desert hits DVD and VOD on March 3rd from 4Digital Media. Give that film’s trailer and synopsis a spin below.
When Eric wakes up, tied and gagged in the trunk of a pick-up truck, it’s instantly clear he’s been kidnapped. However, quickly he discovers he’s accompanied by a young woman, Blake, another hostage. Neither can recall how they ended up in this dire situation, and together they desperately try and get any help they can. With no help coming, and as things become more and more hopeless, it soon becomes fearfully apparent that there is more at stake than it first seems. The two kidnappers have their own agenda, and it’s not a pleasant one…
