Prepare for an intensely creepy descent into crumbling marriage and madness when the disturbing psychological thriller Brightwood comes to DVD and VOD on August 22nd. Hailed as “edge-of-the-seat, top-drawer entertainment” (My Bloody Reviews), this nightmarish indie promises to haunt viewers long after the credits roll.
Written and directed by Dane Elcar, Brightwood stars Max Woertendyke and Dana Berger as a couple whose remote getaway to repair their relationship takes a bizarre and terrifying turn. When reality itself starts to fracture, they confront traumatic secrets and an malevolent presence twisting their perceptions.
Having earned acclaim on the festival circuit, with Audience Award wins at Another Hole in the Head and beyond, Brightwood blends marital drama with surreal horror for an unsettling experience compounded by stunning visuals and sound design. Elcar’s vision immerses the audience in the characters’ disorienting plight.
With its mix of relationship drama and psychological horror, Brightwood has drawn apt comparisons to The Twilight Zone, Timecrimes, and The Blair Witch Project in early reviews. Cinephobia will release the indie chiller on DVD and digital platforms on August 22nd.
So prepare for a thrillingly off-kilter descent into the fractures of a marriage and the distortions of madness when Brightwood creeps onto screens later this month.
With two captivating lead performances and an oppressively eerie atmosphere, this award-winning festival breakout promises to haunt your dreams.
