That’s how the PR describes the new film from the director of THE DEVIL’S DOLLS and RITES OF SPRING.

4Digital Media brings OPEN 24 HOURS to VOD, digital HD and DVD August 18. Written and directed by Padraig Reynolds, it stars Vanessa Grasse, Brendan Fletcher (RAMPAGE, FREDDY VS. JASON), Cole Vigue, Emily Tennant and Daniel O’Meara. The synopsis: “A paranoid delusional woman, Mary White [Grasse], has just been released from a mental hospital for setting her serial-killer boyfriend on fire. Mary suffers from severe paranoia and hallucinations. Her boyfriend, James Lincoln Fields [Vigue], is a brutal serial killer known as The Rain Ripper. He enjoyed murdering people and making Mary watch. After being released from the hospital, Mary’s vulnerable demeanor aids her in obtaining employment at an all-night gas station. However, left alone to her own devices, her paranoia and hallucinations return with furious consequences. Things take a gruesome turn when customers and friends suddenly start turning up dead and mutilated all around her…”
