SONY Takes Cyber Thriller, Ratter

A Slamdance world premiere and selection in this week’s Los Angeles Film Festival, the Ashley Benson-starring Ratter has been acquired for U.S. release by SONY. 

Written and directed by Branden Kramer, Ratter stars Benson (Pretty Little LiarsSpring Breakers) as “Emma, a graduate student living alone in New York City. She is being watched by a “Ratter” who stalks her by hacking into all of her personal technology–laptop, cell phone, and other web connected devices–to record her most intimate moments. Eventually the video feeds aren’t enough and the stalker moves from the virtual to the physical – with disturbing consequence.”

No word yet on a date. If you’re in Los Angeles, you can catch Ratter on Sunday, June 14th at 9:30 p.m. as part of the Nightfall section of LAFFRatter is based on Kramer’s 2012 short, Webcam, which you can see in full below.
