It won’t be a quiet death when Tone-Deaf arrives on Blu-ray™ (plus Digital) and DVD October 22 from Lionsgate. This film is currently available on Digital and On Demand. An entertaining, over-the-top genre bender, the home invasion thriller has been called “pure insanity” by Film Threat and was an official selection of SXSW 2019. The “unflinchingly brutal” (Boston Hassle) film stars Robert Patrick and Amanda Crew. Written and directed by Richard Bates, Jr., the Tone-Deaf Blu-ray and DVD will include a making-of featurette, and will be available for the suggested retail price of $21.99 and $19.98, respectively.


After being dumped by both her boss and her boyfriend, Olive (Amanda Crew) flees the city for the weekend and rents an ornate country house from an old-fashioned widower named Harvey (Robert Patrick). She’s hoping for a few days of peace. What she gets is a weekend of sheer terror, as Olive awakens Harvey’s darkest urges—and is plunged into a blood-soaked fight for her life.
