NEW RELEASES: Free Fall from Anchor Bay Hitting October 28th on Blu-ray and DVD

This sounds perfectly claustrophobic and actually plays on one of my own fears. As the last one out of my building on occasion, I often deliberate between taking the elevator or the stairs though the healthier choice should be easier, I often choose laziness. Anchor Bay is delivering a multi leveled thriller that seems to play on a few different fear sets in Free Fall. Killer in the building. Take the elevator. Get stuck between floors. YOU'RE DEAD! Claustrophobia, Fear of killer stalking you. Fear of heights. This sounds promising. 

This production has a pretty impressive cast with Malcolm McDowell, DB Sweeney and Sarah Butler. I've been really curious to see more of Sarah Butler after her performance in the remake of I Spit on Your Grave and had the pleasure of meeting her at Chiller Theater this year. McDowell certainly is making the rounds lately,and I'm excited to check out his performance. 

Comes out at the end of October just in time for Halloween.

ANCHOR BAY ENTERTAINMENT TAKES THE ELEVATOR TO TERROR WITH
FREE FALL ON BLU-RAY™ AND DVD OCTOBER 28TH

The Only Way Out...Is Down

BEVERLY HILLS, CA – Just like people, corporations can hold secrets. And for those who uncover them, silence is not only golden, but sometimes it is the difference between life and death. On October 28th, Anchor Bay Entertainment will present the intense suspense thriller Free Fall on Blu-ray™ and DVD. The feature directorial debut of Malek Akkad (producer of the Halloween franchise),Free Fall is a nail-biting journey through the ruthless and potentially deadly corporate jungle. Boasting a stellar cast which includes D.B. Sweeney (Taken 2, Fire in the Sky, the upcoming “To Appomattox” miniseries), Sarah Butler (I Spit On Your Grave, The Demented, Treachery), Ian Gomez (“Cougar Town,” My Big Fat Greek Wedding) and screen legend Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange, The Artist), Free Fall will do for elevators what Alfred Hitchcock’sPsycho did for showers. The SRP is $26.99 for Blu Ray ™, $22.98 for DVD.

A top executive is killed in an apparent suicide leap from the skyscraper headquarters of Gault Capital. But when the dead man’s loyal protégé Jane Porter (Butler) uncovers some startling criminal evidence, the corporation calls in their “crisis manager” Frank (Sweeney) to silence her forever. Eluding her pursuer, Jane soon finds herself trapped in an elevator between floors on a holiday weekend in a very empty building.

With their cat and mouse game seemingly at check-mate, Jane must summon all her courage and wits to escape. But she soon discovers that surviving a cold-blooded killer may mean a very long drop to the ground floor.

Bonus features on Free Fall Blu-ray™ and DVD includes a behind-the-scenes featurette.
