On a lazy afternoon, two tales intertwine in this meditative portrayal of disaffected youth set in a graveyard of abandoned mobile homes known as Sunset Edge. Four suburban teens rummage through the decay completely unaware of the shadowy figure that moves among them – a tormented soul with a horrific past. Day turns to night and people disappear as the secrets of Sunset Edge are revealed.

The unrated film was generally well-received by the critics upon its limited release to U.S. theaters in May, 2015. It garnered a 67% positive rating at Rotten Tomatoes based on 16 published reviews with many citing the excellent atmosphere and mood created by writer/director/producer Peddle and his cinematographer Karim Lopez.

Bonus features on the DVD include deleted scenes, a making-of featurette and a Q&A with the filmmaker recorded at New York’s Museum of the Moving Image.
