Actress Alex Essoe just talked to us about the satirical horror film THE DRONE (see her words here), and now it has been set for release. Jump past the jump to see the details, trailer and artwork.

Lionsgate brings THE DRONE to DVD, VOD and digital platforms October 15. From the ZOMBEAVERS team of writer/director Jordan Rubin and co-scripters Al Kaplan and Jon Kaplan, the movie also stars John Brotherton, Rex Linn, Anita Briem and Simon Rex. The synopsis: “This terrifying, outrageous tale takes flight as a serial killer is struck by lightning while holding his precious drone. Weeks later, the drone shows up at the home of newlywed couple Chris [Brotherton] and Rachel [Essoe]. Without them realizing it, the drone films the couple and takes control of their TV, computer, security system, and car. Soon Chris and Rachel fear that the device may be connected to them…and is out for horrific, hovering revenge.”

Special features for DVD (retailing for $19.98) and digital include audio commentary by Rubin, Essoe, cinematographer Jonathan Hall and drone operator Travis Geske, and a “Making THE DRONE” featurette.
