We've been following the progress of Justin McConnell's THE COLLAPSED for some time now. A little-indie-that-could, the post-apocalyptic thriller was snatched up by Anchor Bay last fall. Pretty nice success story!
Now the distributor has given the film an official DVD release date: JUNE 5th. A while away, but there's no time like the present to tell you what to expect from the disc.
First, the synopsis: In wake of an unknown event that has catapulted civilization into a fatal downward spiral, the Weaver family – father Scott (John Fantasia), young adult son Aaron (Steve Vieira), mother Emily (Lisa Moule) and teenage daughter Rebecca (Anna Ross) – desperately tries to survive.
Fleeing the city, their only hope of sanctuary is a rural hometown from their past, Dover’s Bend. With the constant threat of violent death forcing them to stay as far away from civilization as possible, they take to the forest. However, they soon discover that the danger posed by other survivors may be the least of their worries. Someone -- or something -- seems to have followed them into the wilderness...
Here's what will be featured on the DVD:
· Feature length behind-the-scenes documentary "Apocalypse On A Budget: The Making of The Collapse;"
· Two audio commentaries: director/writer/producer Justin McConnell & co-story/co-producer Kevin Hutchinson; lead actor John Fantasia;
· Music Video: Rob Kleiner's "Devil In Disguise;"
