Press Release: CULVER CITY, Calif. (March 21, 2016) – All roads lead to terror in the acclaimed horror anthology SOUTHBOUND, available on DVD May 17, 2016, from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment. From the creators of the popular V/H/S trilogy, the movie follows the fates of a group of weary travelers who confront their worst nightmares over one long night on a desolate stretch of desert highway.
