Burning (Well Go USA, Blu-ray & DVD)
Based on a story by international best-selling author Haruki Murakami, BURNING is the searing examination of an alienated young man, Jongsu (Ah-in YOO, The Throne), a frustrated introvert whose already difficult life is complicated by the appearance of two people into his orbit: first, Haemi (newcomer Jong-seoJUN), a spirited woman who offers romantic possibility, and then, Ben (Steven YEUN, The Walking Dead, Sorry to Bother You), a wealthy and sophisticated young man she returns from a trip with. When Jongsu learns of Bens secret fetish of burning down greenhouses and Haemi suddenly disappears, his confusion and obsessions begin to mount, culminating in a stunning finale.
The Clovehitch Killer (Scream Factory/IFC Midnight, Blu-ray & DVD)
A shocking revelation turns a teenage boy’s world upside-down in this chilling look at the evil that can lurk below even the most wholesome surface. Tyler Burnside (Charlie Plummer, All The Money In The World) is a Boy Scout, a volunteer at his local church, and the dutiful son of an upstanding, community leader dad (Dylan McDermott, American Horror Story). Only one thing troubles the quiet Kentucky town he lives in: the unsolved murders in which ten women were brutally tortured and killed by a psychopath known as Clovehitch that rocked the community more than a decade ago. When Tyler discovers a cache of disturbing images in his father’s possession, he begins to suspect that the man he trusts most in the world may be Clovehitch ... and that his deadly rampage may not be over. With unrelenting tension, director Duncan Skiles crafts a picture-perfect vision of the American family ... and then rips it to shreds.
Dead Ant (NVG, Blu-ray & DVD)
When the '80s one-hit-wonder glam-metal band Sonic Grave embarks on a road trip to Coachella in hopes of a comeback, their peyote trip pit stop in Joshua Tree incites a grisly attack, and they must "rock" themselves out of harm's way.
The Standoff at Sparrow Creek (RLJE Films, Blu-ray & DVD)
After a mass shooting at a police funeral, reclusive ex-cop Gannon realizes that the killer belongs to the same militia he joined after quitting the force. Knowing the police will be closing in on them, Gannon quarantines his fellow militiamen in a remote lumber mill. There, he sets about a series of grueling interrogations, intent on ferreting out the killer and turning him over to the authorities to prevent further bloodshed.
