Filmmaking is a long, tedious process, oftentimes taking much longer than expected to write, fund, produce, edit and garner distribution for a film. It's especially tough for indie filmmakers. We've been covering patrick Rea's indie horror NAILBITER for quite some time, beginning back in 2008 with the first word on the film, then again in 2009 with the first images from the flick. It was more than a year later when we got word that filming had finally wrapped, and now, several years after first reporting on the film, we have word that Lionsgate plans on releasing the film on DVD, Digital Download and Video on Demand on May 28.
Forced to take refuge from a deadly tornado, the Maguire family finds shelter in an abandoned storm cellar. As the storm passes, the family tries to make their way out only to realize that someone or something, not quite human, is holding them captive. Struggling to get out alive, they soon realize that they aren't alone.
NAILBITER (cool ass title!) stars Erin McGrane, Meg Saricks, Emily Boresow and Sally Spurgeon. DVD special features include audio commentaries with the cast and crew and a storyboard-to-screen comparison featurette. Check out the trailer below.
