After its award winning festival run and a limited theatrical release in Canada, Silent Retreat produced by A Film Monkey Production is coming to The United States. On September 2, 2014, Silent Retreat will be available on VOD and digital platforms all across the USA.
It’s been a long journey for the independently produced Canadian shocker that, according to Rue Morgue Magazine, “beautifully blends supernatural horror with the terrors of the real world”. Silent Retreat tells the story of Janey Andrews (Chelsea Jenish), a troubled youth sent to a silent meditation retreat in the middle of the woods to be rehabilitated. She discovers that the Doctor (Robert Nolan) who runs the retreat is after more than just her voice, and if Janey doesn’t follow his rules, she’ll discover the terrible secret that lurks beyond the trees, and find out what happens to those who don’t embrace the silence.
Made with a lot of passion and a tiny budget, Silent Retreat is tried and true indie horror at its best. Shot at Kettleby Valley Camp just outside Toronto, the incredibly dedicated cast and crew under the direction of Tricia Lee, lived and worked on location for 2 weeks. With inventive and resourceful makeup effects, haunting cinematography, and chilling performances, Silent Retreat showcases the incredible talents of many up and coming Canadian filmmakers.
After cutting together a killer trailer (http://bit.ly/SRtrailer), and having a great response from The Toronto After Dark Film Festival, where it won Best Canadian Feature, Lee arranged a limited theatrical release in Toronto, Ottawa, Regina and a few other Canadian cities. And now, the ways to watch Silent Retreat are about to dramatically increase.
On September 2, 2014, not only will the film be distributed on DVD in Canada by Black Fawn Distribution (order it at www.blackfawndistribution.com/store), but it will finally be making its way to the American market.
Audiences can find Silent Retreat online through iTunes, Google Play, YouTube, Playstation Network, Vudu, Amazon Video on Demand, Xbox, and Redbox Instant.
Silent Retreat will be available On Demand through AT&T/U-verse, Verizon/Fios on Demand, Cox, Charter on Demand, Dish Network, Mediacom, Sudden Link, RCN, Optimum Bresnan Communications, and Frontier.
If a trip to Canada is a little too far away to pick up a DVD, rest assured that the American DVD release is coming soon! Check out www.facebook.com/SilentRetreat to keep up to date with all our upcoming information.
