Following a successful festival run, the film sees wider exposure next month.
Vertical Entertainment has announced an October 8 release for THE SECRET OF SINCHANEE in select theaters and on all major digital and cable platforms, including Apple TV, Amazon Prime Video, Vudu, Comcast, Spectrum, Cox and more. It was written and directed by Steven Grayhm and produced by Grayhm and Green Beret/former NFL player Nate Boyer; the two also star along with Tamara Austin, Laila Lockhart Kraner, Jacob Schick and Rudy Reyes. The synopsis: “An industrial tow truck driver suffering from insomnia returns to his childhood home after the untimely death of his father, to discover that a paranormal presence has been living in the house and haunting the sacred land it was built on.”
“This is a deeply personal film that tackles incredibly challenging themes of xenophobia, childhood trauma, and mental health issues, testing the confines of the horror/thriller genre,” Grayhm says. Adds executive producer Joe Newcomb (DALLAS BUYERS CLUB), “Steven is one of the most exciting emerging filmmakers: both as an original storyteller and a producing partner committed to diversity and veteran empowerment. SINCHANEE is shockingly beautiful and absolutely terrifying!”
