BRINKvision have announced the March 8th DVD and VOD release of Stomping Ground, an independent Bigfoot horror feature by writer/director Dan Riesser – which also features a cameo performance from Theresa Tilly, best known as one of the original “Ladies of the Evil Dead” from Sam Raimi’s horror classic, The Evil Dead.
Stomping Ground tells the story of Ben and Annie, a young couple on a weekend trip to Annie’s small North Carolina hometown. At the local bar they run into Paul, a charming old friend of Annie’s, and Ben learns something he never knew about his girlfriend: She believes in Bigfoot. In fact, she and her friends used to “hunt” for the creature when they were kids. Before Ben knows it, he’s off on an impromptu Squatchin’ trip deep in the Carolina backwoods. Amidst the Squatch calls, campfire stories and beers, Ben quickly realizes that Paul may have an ulterior motive in bringing Annie to the woods. And something else out here seems to be after her as well. Everyone but Ben thinks its Bigfoot. But it can’t be, can it? After all, Bigfoot isn’t real.
Stomping Ground received the “Soul of Southern Film Jury Award” at the 2014 Indie Memphis Film Festival. Filmmaker Dan Riesser, formerly an Emmy-nominated producer on E! Entertainment’s The Soup with Joel McHale, wrote, directed and produced the movie - his first feature film.
Limited edition DVDs, which include an 11×17 poster signed by the cast and crew, can be pre-ordered directly from BRINKvision.com or Amazon. It will be available digitally from Amazon Prime and Google Play on March 8th, with additional VOD outlets to follow. Check out the trailer below:
