Gravitas Ventures has acquired North American rights to the thriller Demise, due on VOD Feb. 27.
Written and directed by Yara Estrada Lowe, the film stars Carlo Mendez, Liz Fenning, Crystal Hernandez, Morris Jude Martinez, Richard Rivera, Lucy Serrano, Caitlin Rose Williams and Lamar Alexander.
The story centers around Celine, a beautiful loving wife in the San Fernando Valley. Celine’s life is turned upside down when she learns that she’s unable to bear children. Things go from bad to worse when she discovers that her husband Caleb is having an affair, and his mistress Fiona is pregnant with his child. Caleb is confronted by Celine. Although he begs for forgiveness, he nevertheless chooses to leave Celine for Fiona and bring up their son. The abrupt ending to Celine’s marriage causes her to spiral into a twisted path of obsession and revenge, in which she struggles to regain control of her life at all costs.
“I was inspired by the thrillers of the ’90s, like The Hand That Rocks The Cradle, during my upbringing in Northern California,” Yara Estrada Lowe said in a statement. “My aspiration was to create a film in the same genre — something that’s fun and sexy. I hope everyone enjoys the film as much as I enjoyed making it.”
“Gravitas Ventures is excited to be bringing Demise to North American audiences this February,” Bill Guentzler, Gravitas Ventures’ VP of acquisitions, said in a statement. “Writer-Director Yara Estrada Lowe brings out the excellent talent of Carlo Mendez, Crystal Hernandez, and Liz Fenning creating a thrilling drama about infidelity and obsession.”
