Black Rock movie scene

Katie Aselton (l.), Lake Bell (ctr.) and Kate Bosworth run into trouble during their girls-only camping trip in Black Rock.

A girls-only weekend getaway to a remote island from their childhood turns into a fight for survival for Katie Aselton (Feed the Fish), Lake Bell (A Good Old Fashioned Orgy) and Kate Bosworth (Straw Dogs) in the independent thriller film Black Rock.

A trio of childhood friends, Sarah (Bosworth), Abby (Aselton) and Lou (Bell), get together for a private campout at an iconic setting from their childhood, an empty island off the coast of Maine, to renew their bond of sisterhood. The three, however, quickly finds themselves in a fight for their lives after they meet three men who have come to the island for a hunting trip. After a night of drinking spirals into a tragic accident, the ladies soon become the target.  What first started as a simple play date to recall old times is now a race for survival.

Directed and co-written by star Aselton, the R-rated Black Rock received a limited release to U.S. theaters earlier in May. Though the film didn’t receive all that many favorable notices—it garnered a 5.2/10 rating at Rotten Tomatoes based on 39 published reviews—the talented cast of leading ladies definitely warrant some attention as they get down and dirty.

The Blu-ray and DVD of this official Sundance Film Festival selection include the following bonus materials

  • Audio Commentary with Director/Actress Katie Aselton and Actress Lake Bell
  • “Behind The Scenes of Black Rock” featurette
  • “A Thrilling Score: The Music of Black Rock” featurette
