22ND AUGUST - THE DROWNSMAN

In the tradition of JEEPERS CREEPERS, REEKER and HATCHET, make way for a totally different supernatural villain and new franchise maniac. After almost drowning in a lake, Madison (ANTISOCIAL star Michelle Mylett) finds herself scared to death of water and bound to that saturated fear for life. Crippled by the sopping wet trauma, she attempts to shut out reality but her dread intensifies when she’s continually haunted by a rancid ghostly entity trying to pull her into his dark aqua world. After watching her struggle for a year with the debilitating hydrophobia and nightmare visions, Madison’s four best girlfriends attempt an unconventional intervention in which they accidentally open a floodgate to a sodden universe that puts all their lives in danger. For when Sebastian Doner in the sinister form of the Drownsman strikes in the shallows of your subconscious how long are you able to hold your breath underwater?
