"THE RIG" starring William Forsythe -- coming to DVD October 5th from Anchor Bay Entertainment

Horror can happen anywhere…


The Fight To Survive Commences October 5th

Beverly Hills , CA – The ocean can be amazing, mesmerizing and beautiful. But for a small group of oil riggers stranded miles offshore, they will soon discover the ocean also holds unimaginable terror. On October 5th, Anchor Bay Entertainment will release the horror thriller The Rig starring William Forsythe (Rob Zombie’s Halloween, The Devil’s Rejects, “Masters of Horror: We All Scream for Ice Cream”) and Art LaFleur (Speed Racer, Field of Dreams) on DVD.  Boasting shocking special effects from the team behind Aliens Vs Predators – Requiem, fans of horror and action can “rig” themselves for new depths of action and adventure. SRP is $26.98, and pre-book is September 8th.

When a tropical storm forces an offshore drilling company to evacuate non-essential personnel from the Charlie oil rig, the small but experienced crew left behind settles in to ride out the storm. Their routine night is interrupted when a crew member goes missing and an extensive search proves futile. Slowly, they discover that a deadly creature is stalking the crew, eliminating them one by one. Surrounded by nothing but raging ocean with no hope of escape, the roughnecks must survive the stormy night with an unrelenting force of death hunting them down. The film also stars Stacey Hinnen (“Modern Family,” “Monk”), Serah D’Laine (Wild Things: Diamonds in the Rough; “ General Hospital ”), Marcus T. Paulk (Red Tails, “Moesha”) and Dan Benson (“Wizards of Waverly Place.”)

I had the chance to see this movie at a screening in a theater this past weekend. I was amazed at how entertaining it was. Scary with some great funny moments to relieve the tension. Thumbs up from me!
