VANish

Danny Trejo and Maiara Walsh Star in a Relentlessly Entertaining Debut Feature, Coming to Digital Download, Blu-ray and DVD From Dark Sky Films on February 24, 2015.

New York, NY (December 24, 2014) Fans of Death Proof, Reservoir Dogs and Machete will be right on board with the road trip thriller VANish, a new action shocker that rides in the fast lane and never slows down. The adrenaline-fueled film comes to Digital Download, Blu-ray and DVD from Dark Sky Films on February 24, 2015.

Hoping to score a hefty ransom, three thugs viciously kidnap a drug cartel boss’ only daughter from her home in broad daylight. The captors imprison the young woman in their van, dictate terms to her notorious father, and then travel to the outskirts of the desert for the exchange.

What the amateurs don’t realize is that their victim is a force to be reckoned with on this violent road trip full of murder and mayhem. It’s hell on wheels as time ticks away and the pressure mounts. The kidnappers find themselves in increasing danger and must find a way to keep their plan in order before all hell breaks loose.

 Featuring standout performances from Maiara Walsh (Desperate Housewives, Disney Channel’s Cory in the House, The Starving Games) and genre favorites Tony Todd (Candyman, Final Destination, Hatchet II) and Danny Trejo (Machete, From Dusk Till Dawn) and a story that puts a bold new spin on the action thriller, VANISH is a high-octane trip through a no man’s land where trouble lurks behind every turn of its twisting plot.

First-time writer-director Bryan Bockbrader (who also appears in the film) told us, “I had this idea of doing a road movie from the perspective of inside the vehicle, giving the viewer a chance to ride along as a passenger. As the tension builds, we are trapped in this intimate place with extremely dangerous people and when the s— hits the fan (or van), there’s no escaping the chaos.”

Realtalk. Is there anything that Danny Trejo is in that doesn’t turn into pure gold? (Maybe I have a skewed perception of what constitutes film gold, but I digress…) I’m thrilled to hear that Tony Todd is going to be in this, as well! I really can’t wait to see this film, and I haven’t even gotten to see a trailer yet. Gorehounds, keep your eyes peeled for more news on this movie, because it sounds like it’s going to be a winner.

About Fox

Warning! In addition to suspense filled brain teasers Fox enjoys things that are terrible and knows it! She adores B movies and campy would-be thrillers that make most viewers groan. (Heckling is a favored pastime.) When she isn't seeking out spooky comedic gold or mind twisting plots, she can be found at her desk job, writing, or playing with tiny dogs. She's currently working on a horror anthology, details http://bit.ly/swp-01
