First Look: Saban Films acquires Tone-Deaf starring Robert Patrick

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

Saban Films announced today that they have acquired North American rights to Richard Bates Jr.’s home invasion horror thriller TONE-DEAF. The film stars Robert Patrick (T2: JUDGMENT DAY) and Amanda Crew (TABLE 19) and is produced by Circle of Confusion’s Lawrence Mattis, Matt Smith, and Brad Mendelsohn, and Best Medicine Productions’ Brion Hambel and Paul Jensen. Check out first look pics above and below.

The fourth feature from the director of EXCISION, SUBURBAN GOTHIC, and TRASH FIRE, TONE DEAF is said to be "a darkly comedic critique of the bizarre cultural and political climate." Here's the official synopsis:

Millennial Olive (Crew) who, after losing her job and imploding her latest dysfunctional relationship, leaves the city for a weekend of peace in the country, only to discover the shockingly dark underbelly of rural America.  She rents an eccentric, ornate country house from Harvey (Patrick), an old-fashioned widower who's struggling to hide his psychopathic tendencies. Soon two generations collide with terrifying results in this home invasion horror film that is also a darkly comedic critique of the bizarre cultural and political climate that currently exists.      

Saban Films negotiated the deal along with Steve Break on behalf of the filmmakers. Lightning Entertainment’s James C. Walker and Andrew Brown and Hindsight Media’s James Swarbrick executive produced along with James Scott, Tim Smith, and Tracey McCarrick. Saban Films remains active in the acquisition and distribution space, with upcoming titles including THE HAUNTING OF SHARON TATE starring Hilary Duff, and Sarah Daggar-Nickson’s A VIGILANTE starring Olivia Wilde. Saban Films continues to grow its presence in the industry, with successes like Rob Zombie’s 31.

TONE-DEAF will make its World Premiere at this year’s SXSW Film Festival.
