Wither is being marketing as Sonny Laguna‘s homage to Sam Raimi‘s The Evil Dead series. For those of you who are interested; Artsploitation Films announced that the demon film will be hitting DVD this upcoming August 20, 2013.
The horror DVD will feature trailers, a deleted scene, a behind-the-scenes featurette, and a fully illustrated eight-page booklet.
Synopsis: This Swedish homage to Sam Raimi’s original Evil Dead (1982) is a bloody, scary tale of demonic possession. A group of naive young people find their carefree weekend in an isolated country house unhinged when one of them accidentally unleashes a mysterious and murderous creature trapped in the basement. As the demon begins to attack the couples, the blood-dredged body count mounts and with it, more creatures out for a taste of human flesh, freshly killed. The dazed young men and women soon mount their own desperate counter-attack, an attack that includes decapitations, dismemberment, spurting blood, flailing axes and the kind of gore one does associate with Swedish cinema!
