One of our fest faves for 2021 will see wider exposure early next year.

Gravitas Ventures has picked up the worldwide distribution rights to THE FREE FALL, and will give it theatrical and VOD release in North America January 14. Directed by Adam Stilwell (THE TRIANGLE) from a script by Kent Harper (SURVEILLANCE), it also stars Andrea Londo, Jane Badler (V), Michael Berry Jr., Elizabeth Cappuccino (SUPER DARK TIMES) and Marc Senter (THE LOST). The synopsis: “After attempting to take her own life, a young woman [Londo] must wrestle with an overbearing husband [Ashmore]”; see our review here.

“THE FREE FALL is a deep dive into the brutal confusion of a manipulative relationship,” Stilwell says. “A horrific look at obsession and the gaslighting that can possess us when we’re at our very worst. It’s an important story and I’m really excited for audiences to experience it.”

“THE FREE FALL is a powerful psychological horror film with a remarkable, shocking twist and outstanding cast,” adds Gravitas Ventures CEO and founder Nolan Gallagher. “We are thrilled to bring it to theaters and on demand next January for audiences to experience.”
