An intriguing trailer has been released for the true crime thriller The Ravine, and you can check it out in the embed above. Cinedigm will be giving The Ravine a theatrical, digital, and On Demand release on May 6th, so take a look at the trailer and see if this is a movie you’d want to watch just over a month from now.

The press release doesn’t specify exactly which true crime this movie was inspired by, but the writing credits lead to some more information. The film was written by Keoni Waxman from a screenplay Waxman wrote with Robert Pascuzzi and Kelly Pascuzzi, and Robert Pascuzzi previously wrote a book called The Ravine, which you can buy at THIS LINK.

The film has a very short synopsis:

When an unspeakable crime rocks a peaceful community, family and friends are left to wonder if they overlooked the murderer among them or if there might be more to the story.

The description for Pascuzzi’s book tells a lot more:

On a typical weekday morning in a peaceful suburb of Akron, Ohio, the town awakens to discover that Rachel Turner and her son, Evan have been brutally murdered during the night. A short while later, Danny Turner is found in his car at the bottom of a ravine, after having taken his own life. Any explanation as to why a loving father and husband would suddenly commit a series of such heinous crimes has gone to the grave with the accused. The mystery only deepens as the details of the murders emerge, and evidence of premeditation as well as Danny’s hidden past are revealed. Subsequently, Rachel’s closest friend, Carolyn Bianci, sinks into a deep depression, while her husband, Mitch, copes with his despair by attempting to uncover the facts of the crime. Eventually they encounter Joanna Larson, a fascinating woman who possesses extraordinary spiritual gifts. Through Joanna, the truth about the events that took place the night of the murders are unveiled. The answers Mitch and Carloyn get are beyond their human understanding. Inspired by true events, The Ravine is a story of faith, forgiveness, and most of all, the restoration of hope — even for the most seemingly unredeemable among us.

The film version of The Ravine stars Eric Dane (Grey’s Anatomy), Teri Polo (Meet the Parents), Peter Facinelli (Supergirl), Byron Mann (Wu Assassins), Leslie Uggams (Deadpool), and Kyle Lowder (Days of Our Lives).
