MEDIUM RAW from Anchor Bay Entertainment -- coming to DVD August 16th


“Every good horror flick needs strong villains, and this one has them in spades!” --
Once upon a time, there was a homicidal maniac who slaughtered 15 little girls and left a question scrawled in the victim’s blood at each crime scene: “Are you The Woodcutter?” Five-year-old Johnny Morgan witnessed his sister’s murder at the hands of this monster. Years later, Johnny became a detective and finally caught the murderer, bringing him to justice. And they all lived happily ever after, right?  Guess again…

Recent winner of the Northern Lights Award at the Alaska International Film Festival, Anchor Bay Entertainment presents Medium Raw: Night of the Wolf on DVD August 16th. With an all-star genre cast including John Rhys-Davies (The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Raiders of the Lost Ark  and Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade), William B. Davis (“the Cigarette Smoking Man” from “The X-Files,” The Shortcut), Mercedes McNab (Hatchet, “Buffy The Vampire Slayer”) and wrestling legends Jay “Christian” Reso and Andrew “Test” Martin (in his final screen appearance), Medium Raw takes the Little Red Riding Hood legend into a new realm of terror and psychological horror. SRP is $22.98, and pre-book is July 20th.

Even though Johnny (writer/director Andrew Cymek) is now an officer of the law, he’s still plagued by nightmares of his sister’s death and the serial killer that’s still out there. When a new murder scene features the same cryptic question, Johnny and his partner (Davies) track down leads until he finally captures Harold Grierson aka “the Wolf.” But when a power outage at Parker’s Asylum for the Criminally Insane, where Harold is interred, and Johnny’s girlfriend Jamie (Brigitte Kingsley) works as a psychiatrist, unleashes all the inmates, Johnny, Jamie along with a handful of civilians become players in a night of survival against the world’s most terrifying inmates…the Night of the Wolf.
