Press Release: "NEW YORK – FilmRise has acquired North American home media rights to THE INHABITANTS, the new supernatural thriller from the writers of JOHN CARPENTER'S THE WARD. The Brooklyn-based film and TV distributor will release the film January 5th, 2016, on DVD and Blu-ray. The discs will include an exclusive behind-the-scenes featurette as well as the film's trailer.

THE INHABITANTS was shot inside one of the oldest haunted houses in New England, which at one time was home to the Salem Witch Trial children. The Noyes-Parris House (c. 1669) was owned by the infamous Rev. Samuel Parris who was the father of Betty Parris and uncle to Abigail Williams, the two girls who made the initial accusations that led to the tragic witch trials that took place in Salem, Massachusetts.

Written and directed by Michael and Shawn Rasmussen, the screenwriting team behind JOHN CARPENTER'S THE WARD, and produced by international bestselling author Glenn Cooper (LIBRARY OF THE DEAD trilogy), THE INHABITANTS revolves around a young couple that gets more than they bargained for when they renovate a neglected bed and breakfast in New England. After a series of disturbing events, the husband begins to suspect that something evil is lurking within the walls of this old house, and whatever it is has set its sights on his wife. Now he must fight to uncover the inn's dark secret before this malicious spirit consumes everything he loves.

FilmRise will release THE INHABITANTS on DVD and Blu-ray January 5th, 2016. The film is currently available for pre-order through Amazon:

    About the Author - Tamika Jones

    Tamika hails from North Beach, Maryland, a tiny town inches from the Chesapeake Bay.She knew she wanted to be an actor after reciting a soliloquy by Sojourner Truth in front of her entire fifth grade class. Since then, she's appeared in over 20 film and television projects. In addition to acting, Tamika is the Indie Spotlight manager for Daily Dead, where she brings readers news on independent horror projects every weekend.

    The first horror film Tamika watched was Child's Play. Being eight years old at the time, she remembers being so scared when Chucky came to life that she projectile vomited. It's tough for her to choose only one movie as her favorite horror film, so she picked two: Nosferatu and The Stepford Wives (1975).
