Bereavement movie scene

Alexandra Daddario conquers the darkness in Bereavement.

Anchor Bay kept the scares coming with the release of the horror thriller movie Bereavement on Blu-ray and DVD on Aug. 30, 2011, for the list prices of $34.99 and $26.98, respectively.

A prequel to the 2005 cult hit Malevolence, Bereavement features rising starlet Alexandra Daddario (Hall Pass), Michael Biehn (The Terminator), John Savage (The Deer Hunter) and Brett Rickaby (The Crazies).

In the independent film, in 1989, 6-year-old Pennsylvania boy Martin Bristol (Spencer List) was kidnapped from his backyard swing by Graham Sutter (Rickaby), a psychotic recluse who kept Martin imprisoned on his derelict pig farm, forcing him to witness and participate in unspeakable horrors.

Martin’s whereabouts would have remained a mystery, but 17-year-old Allison Miller (Daddario) comes to live with her Uncle Jonathan (Biehn) and discovers that things are not well at the farmhouse down the road. What started as an innocent exercise in satisfying her curiosity will soon disturb a hornet’s nest of evil and despair.

The Blu-ray and DVD of the film contain the following bonus features:

  • commentary by writer/director Mena
  • behind-the-scenes featurette
  • deleted scenes
  • theatrical trailer
