It has seemingly taken forever to get here, but at long last Steven Mena’s Bereavement (which is the prequel to his 2004 film Malevolence) is set to hit DVD and Blu-ray on August 30th through Anchor Bay Entertainment. Malevolence, in my opinion, was an underrated little gem so I am personally looking forward to grabbing a copy of this next month. Check out a new clip from the movie below.
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!
