“Never Underestimate Your Will to Survive.”

Rachel Weber stars as a haunted woman fighting against the odds in Barry Andersson’s survival thriller, RELENTLESS, which has been slated for a November 27th digital release from Terror Films.

Living alone in a large, empty house while struggling with depression after a recent loss, Jennifer (Weber) accidentally locks herself in the basement during a massive thunderstorm. As water begins to flood in and quickly rise, she soon finds herself in the ultimate fight for survival.

On the conception of the film, Andersson had this to say: “I loved exploring the basic idea of what we, as human’s value when faced with a personal tragedy. What do we hang onto and when do we need to let go of things? We set up the house to be a metaphor for these very questions. The upstairs represents things we worry about every day such as paying bills, charging our devices etc.”

Terror Films’ President Joe Dain also spoke of the film’s release, “We had to decide what label this film made sense for. Though RELENTLESS might not be seen as a traditional horror film, it does deal with the horror of loss and loneliness, while also tackling our basic human instinct to survive in a harrowing and desperate situation.”

RELENTLESS hits digital platforms on November 27th from Terror Films.
