“You can take what you want from life or you can play the victim. On September, 18th, Anchor Bay Films unleashes the provocative and gritty grindhouse thriller The Victim, written, directed and starring 80’s horror/sci-fi icon and fan favorite Michael Biehn (The Terminator, Aliens, Tombstone). Making his directorial debut to rave reviews and critical acclaim on the film festival circuit, The Victim comes to Blu-ray™ with an SRP of $24.99 and $22.98 SRP for the DVD.

Good time girls Annie (Jennifer Blanc) and Mary (Danielle Harris) find themselves in a life and death situation. Annie’s life is put in jeopardy when she is witness to a violent act at the hands of two Sheriff’s Deputies (Ryan Honey, Denny Kirkwood). With her pursuers closing in, she stumbles across Kyle (Michael Biehn, Terminator, Aliens, The Rock), a recluse living in the middle of the woods. A rugged loner, Kyle finds the stillness of the woods comforting. He keeps civilization at arm’s length; that is – until a single knock on his door throws his solitary life into chaos. Two worlds collide in this nerve-fraying thriller that will keep audiences guessing until the very last frame.
There is no shortage of praise for The Victim with Jake Dee of Arrowinthehead.com declaring “It’s a lean, brusque, focused thriller with good performances by all involved” and Ain’t It Cool News’ Nordling describes it as a “A sexy, fun little grindhouse film, true to the genre.”
Bonus features on The Victim include feature-length audio commentary by writer/director Biehn and co-star/co-producer Jennifer Blanc, a making-of featurette, and the theatrical trailer.”
