The highly-anticipated prequel to the 2005 cult hit Malevolence, Bereavement stars Michael Biehn, John Savage, Alexandra Daddario, and Brett Rickaby. Available on Blu-ray and DVD on Aug. 30.
In 1989, six-year-old Martin Bristol was kidnapped from his backyard swing in Minersville, PA. Graham Sutter (Rickaby), a psychotic recluse, kept Martin imprisoned on his derelict pig farm, forcing him to witness and participate in unspeakable horrors. Chosen at random, his victim's screams were drowned out by the rural countryside.
Martin's whereabouts would have remained a mystery, until 17-year-old Allison Miller (Daddario) comes to live with her Uncle Jonathan (Biehn). While exploring her new surroundings, Allison discovers things aren't quiet at the farmhouse down the road. What started as an innocent exercise in satisfying her curiosity will soon disturb a hornet's nest of evil and despair. For everyone involved, there can only be two outcomes: bereavement or death!
