After making its way around the festival circuit, the independent horror feature will be luring more viewers in general release next month.
Wild Eye Releasing will bring THE LURING to digital platforms and DVD June 16. Written and directed by Christopher Wells, it stars Rick Irwin, Michaela Sprague, Molly Fahey, Dan Berkey and Henry Gagliardi. The synopsis: “Garrett [Irwin] tries to recover a lost memory that took place during his 10th birthday at his family’s vacation home in Vermont. Unbeknownst to him, something unspeakable happened; as a result, Garrett was found in a non-responsive state by his parents. Psychiatrists call it dissociative amnesia–a loss of memory due to a traumatic event–but Garrett will soon learn some memories reveal things he wished weren’t true.”
The trailer looks like this would be a lot of fun to watch, it doesn’t look typical. Where can I see this film?
We loved this film! It’s weird, disturbing, fun and when it was over we had a long discussion about it because it’s just one of those kind of movies you talk about. Not too many films in the genre take the kinds of risks The Luring did so if you’re looking for something different this is a really good choice.
