If you love a good thriller and can stomach a bit of over the top violence then its a movie you must see. For me Surveillance is to this generation what SEVEN was to the 90’s. She followed that up with HISS which I have not seen but have heard is horrible which is unfortunate but it looks like with CHAINED she is going back to the aspects of the genre that endeared her to me in this new serial killer thriller.
Perhaps the most terrifying human relationship is the one between a serial killer and his target. But what if it starts that way, and becomes something…more? From the visionary mind of director Jennifer Lynch comes the dark fable CHAINED from Anchor Bay Films. With a stellar cast including Vincent D’Onofrio, Gina Phillips, Conor Leslie, Evan Bird, with Jake Weber and Julia Ormond, CHAINED is an unforgettable ride into the darkness that can reside in the human heart – no matter what your age.
Coming home from a routine trip to the movies, eight-year-old Tim (Bird) and his mother, Sarah (Ormond) are picked up by a psychopathic cab driver named Bob (D’Onofrio). It ends up being their last ride together. Bob murders the young boy’s mother and keeps Tim as his unwilling protégée, making him clean up the mess following each murder he commits. After a couple of aborted escape attempts, Bob chains Tim – now renamed Rabbit — allowing just enough length to move freely within the house. As the years pass, Bob starts instructing Rabbit, teaching him anatomy and human behavior. Now a teenager, Rabbit (Eamon Farren) is slowly being pressed by Bob to start his own homicidal spree. Slowly but surely, he must soon choose whether to follow in Bob’s serial killer footsteps or make one final, desperate attempt to break free…
CHAINED will available on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and DVD October 2nd from Anchor Bay Films.
