The latest study of horrific dysfunction from writer/director Richard Bates Jr. (EXCISION, TRASH FIRE), TONE-DEAF is coming later this summer, and the trailer and latest poster have been unveiled.

Arriving in theaters and on VOD August 23 from Saban Films, TONE-DEAF stars Robert Patrick, Amanda Crew, Hayley Marie Norman, Johnny Pemberton, Nancy Linehan Charles, AnnaLynne McCord, Keisha Castle-Hughes, Ray Wise and Kim Delaney. The synopsis: “After losing her job and imploding her latest dysfunctional relationship, Olive [Crew] flees the city for the weekend, escaping to the countryside for some peace and self-reflection. She rents an ornate country house from an eccentric widower named Harvey [Patrick]. Soon two generations collide with terrifying results as Olive awakens Harvey’s homicidal tendencies and is plunged into a blood-soaked fight for her life. More than your average slasher film, TONE-DEAF provides a dark critique of the bizarre cultural and political climate that currently exists.”
