Driftwood DVD Specs

Posted by: Michael

Take a look into a frightening and supernatural world of an "Attitude Adjustment Camp for Troubled Youths", as Driftwood premieres on DVD November 13, 2007 from Image Entertainment. Directed and co-written by Tim Sullivan, the director of the cult horror comedy 2001 Maniacs, Driftwood stars some of the hottest young talent working in Hollywood today, including Raviv Ullman (Disney Channel’s “Phil of the Future”), Talan Torriero (MTV’s “Laguna Beach”), Cory Hardrict (“Lincoln Heights”), along with World Champion Wrestler turned actor Diamond Dallas Page (Devils Rejects), David Eigenberg (“Sex and the City”), Lin Shaye (There’s Something About Mary), Marc McClure (Superman), Jeremy Lelliott (“7th Heaven”), Russell Sams (Rules of Attraction) and John Walcutt (“JAG”). Driftwood is a character driven paranormal thriller that has been described as Stand By Me meets Ghost Story.

Riddled with guilt over the loss of his rock star older brother, 16 year old David Forrester (Ullman) becomes obsessed with death, leading his misguided parents to send him to Driftwood, an "Attitude Adjustment Camp for Troubled Youths" run by the sadistic Captain Doug Kennedy (Page) and his brutal young henchman, Yates (Torriero). Once there, David becomes haunted by the spirit of Jonathan (Connor Ross), a former inmate who met a mysterious end; a mystery whose resolution could very well be David's only way out!

Driftwood’s storyline was inspired by co-writer/director Tim Sullivan’s concerns with the proliferation of privately owned and run “Attitude Adjustment Camps” for youths who are deemed troubled and problematic by parents. On a daily basis, many young people are having difficulties at home and at school are being shipped to these camps all over the country, where they are often brutalized, programmed and in some extreme cases, actually murdered (as recently exemplified by the headline making death of a young boy at a similar Attitude Adjustment Camp in Florida).

Assisting behind the scenes of Driftwood were some of Hollywood’s most seasoned and accomplished movie veterans. They include producers Bob Engelman (Blade, The Mask), Barry Levine (Detroit Rock City) and Bud Smith (The Exorcist, To Live and Die in LA), cinematographer Steve Adcock (2001 Maniacs, “Deadwood”), editor M. Scott Smith (The Crow), composer William Ross (Ladder 49, Young Black Stallion) and Warped Tour favorites Tad Jacobs and Bobby Alt, from super group, The Supersonic Jets, who wrote and perform the end title “Set Me Free”.
