Anchor Bay entertainment aquired the rights to release Adam Wingard’s thriller A Horrible Way To Die in English-speaking territories and the deal includes a theatrical component. This is encouraging since straight to DVD releases practically ensure a movie will live it’s life in obscurity. The poster is less than spectacular but the trailer looks pretty awesome.
Synopsis: “Sarah is starting life over. After her last relationship ended with a revelation that sent her boyfriend, Garrick, to a life sentence in prison, Sarah had no choice but to leave her past behind. Now that sheâ€™s been relocated to a small town and given a new identity, Sarahâ€™s embracing the opportunity to start life fresh. Unfortunately for Sarah, the past wonâ€™t let go.
Garrick escapes prison and discovers Sarahâ€™s new location, then blazes a violent trail across the country to track her down and disrupt her seemingly perfect new life. â€œ
It’s clear that this will most likely not end well but of course you need to watch to find out. What is Garrick’s true motivation for his obsessive manhunt? Is it just because she turned him in or is there something more? Should be a movie worth checking out.
