Horror films often take their cue from daily newspaper headlines, feeding on the all-too-real fears of the everyday world. Like the best science fiction, sometimes horror lies just around the corner or beyond the bend of what we know. On July 30th, Anchor Bay Films unleashes the biological warfare thriller The Demented on Blu-rayβ’/DVD combo pack and DVD. From the creative minds behind I Spit On Your Grave and A Nightmare on Elm Street, The Demented is a terrifying excursion into a plague-infected world…where one moment off guard is all that keeps us from becoming them.
With a hot cast including Sarah Butler (I Spit On Your Grave), Brittney Alger (21 Jump Street), Kayla Ewell (βThe Vampire Diariesβ), Richard Kohnke (βThe Carrie Diariesβ) and Michael Welch (The Twilight Saga Franchise), The Demented will have you on the edge of your seat until the very last frame! SRP for the Blu-rayβ’/DVD Combo Pack is $29.99 and $24.98 for the DVD. Pre-book is July 3rd.
The Demented follows six college friends as they meet up for a carefree weekend in a beautiful rural home. A terrorist missile attack in a nearby town infects much of the townspeople with a deadly virus that induces rabies-like symptoms…with devastating consequences. Ravenous and fast, the infected townspeople turn their sights on the vacation home where the friends are gathered…and are now barricaded. How long can they hide? Even with the infected βsleepingβ in the streets, can they make their escape? If so, to what?
