Anchor Bay Acquires Michael Biehn’s Directorial Effort The Victim


Anchor Bay Films has locked in North American rights to the suspense thriller, The Victim, starring Michael Biehn, Jennifer Blanc, Ryan Honey, Denny Kirkwood, Tanya Newbould and Danielle Harris.  The Victim was written by Michael Biehn and is his directorial debut.

“From the first day of shooting, I had hoped that Anchor Bay would be interested in The Victim.  I’m very happy they will be working with us to distribute it,” says Biehn.  “I loved making such a down and dirty film – true grindhouse.”

Good time girls Annie (Jennifer Blanc) and Mary (Danielle Harris) find themselves in a life and death situation. Annie’s life is put in jeopardy when she is witness to a violent act at the hands of two Sheriff’s Deputies. Fleeing from attackers (Ryan Honey, Denny Kirkwood), she stumbles across Kyle (Michael Biehn), a recluse living in the middle of the woods.  The ruggedly handsome loner stays far from civilization – that is – until a single knock on his door throws his solitary life into chaos. Two worlds collide in this psychological thriller that will make you question your trust in mankind.  Who is the victim?

The Victim was executive produced by Brock Morse, Morgan Johnson and Ryan Honey of The Mud Show and produced by Jennifer Blanc-Biehn, Lorna Paul and Travis Romero of Blanc/Biehn Productions in association with Pegasus Productions.  Stevan Mena and Vincent Butta of Crimson Films will be handling the theatrical release.  This is the third project between Crimson Films and Anchor Bay Films.  Additionally, Hogan Entertainment and Pegasus Productions will be handling the college tour of the film.
