Quiver Distribution, who was behind the Kevin James and Lulu Wilson-starring home invasion film Becky, is back with a brand new thriller that ends in bloodshed.
Bloody Disgusting has the exclusive trailer premiere for The Retreat, described as a Lesbian slasher that puts up a fight.
In the film from director Pat Mills, “Renee (Tommie-Amber Pirie) and Valerie (Sarah Allen), a couple at a crossroad in their relationship, leave the city to spend the weekend at a remote cabin with friends but when they arrive, their friends are nowhere to be found. As they stumble through their relationship woes, they discover they are being hunted by a group of militant extremists who are determined to exterminate them.”
Available in theaters, day-and-date with Digital HD and VOD on May 21st, writer Alyson Richards refers to The Retreat as “the movie version of how I feel these days: Don’t fuck with us ’cause we’ll fight back.
“Writing The Retreat was my cathartic way of dealing with my anger,” she added.
Said Pat Mills: “Being different and sticking out in a place that does not feel safe is something we can all relate to, but for those of us who are queer-identified, this fear takes up space in our identities – it becomes a part of us.
“The Retreat is about everyone’s worst fear: being targeted for being who they are.
“[It] is a cabin-in-the-woods movie made for us and by us – but everyone can relate to the need to survive. As extremist subcultures boil to the surface, the fears explored in The Retreat are more relevant than ever.”
