In her SXSW review of Tone-Deaf, Heather Wixson wrote that Richard Bates Jr. "explores the ongoing war between baby boomers and millennials," and following their acquisition of North American rights to Tone-Deaf back in March, Saban Films has now released the movie's first trailer that's filled with violent impulses, pitch-black humor, and a deadly generational divide.

Tone-Deaf is slated for a theatrical release in the US on August 23rd. Written and directed by Bates Jr., Tone-Deaf stars Robert Patrick, Amanda Crew, Hayley Marie Norman, Johnny Pemberton, Nancy Linehan Charles, AnnaLynne McCord, Keisha Castle-Hughes, Ray Wise, and Kim Delaney.

You can check out the official trailer and poster below, and in case you missed it, read Heather Wixson's SXSW interview with Bates Jr, Patrick, and Crew.

Synopsis: "Tone-Deaf follows millennial Olive (Crew) who, after losing her job and imploding her latest dysfunctional relationship, leaves the city for a weekend of peace in the country, only to discover the shockingly dark underbelly of rural America. She rents an eccentric, ornate country house from Harvey (Patrick), an old-fashioned widower who's struggling to hide his psychopathic tendencies. Soon two generations collide with terrifying results in this home invasion horror film that is also a darkly comedic critique of the bizarre cultural and political climate that currently exists."
