ComingSoon.net is excited to share an exclusive clip from the supernatural thriller Threshold, which releases May 3 on Arrow Video’s subscription streaming service.
The second film from co-directors Powell Robinson and Patrick R. Young, Threshold follows a pair of estranged siblings that go on a haunted road trip after being cursed by a cult. The inventive thriller was shot on two iPhones with a crew of only three people. Lauren Bates produced the film, which stars Joey Millin and Madison West. Arrow will also feature a number of bonuses for the film including a directors’ intro, multiple commentary tracks and behind-the-scenes featurettes.
Check out the official synopsis on Threshold below:
When a phone call from out of the blue brings Leo (Joey Millin) back into contact with his sister, Virginia (Madison West), long estranged from her family due to years of drug abuse, he arrives to find her alone in a bare apartment in the midst of an apparent overdose. After the convulsions and nausea subside, Virginia insists to Leo that she has been clean for 8 months due to the help of a mysterious group. She confides to her cynical brother that her edginess and paranoia actually stem from a sinister ritual conducted by the group that took her in at her lowest and eventually revealed themselves to be a cult. This curse bound her emotions and physical sensations to a man she has never met before.
With his marriage on the rocks, Leo has his own demons to face. Nonetheless, he is reluctantly persuaded by Virginia to embark on a cross-country road trip to track down this shadowy stranger under the caveat that if he’s nowhere to be found and it’s all in her head, she’ll go to rehab. However, as their date with destiny draws nearer, Leo begins to suspect his sister’s tall tale might have some substance.
“We’re excited to have Threshold join the Arrow family,” said Young. “This is a deeply personal project, and we couldn’t imagine better caretakers than these cult, genre, bizarro film-loving cine-freaks. Our only hope is that this gives people a chance to connect with our actor’s characters as much as we have.”
Robinson was just as thrilled to be on the service.
“We set out to make Threshold with two goals: tell a very intimate story which all of us could put a piece of ourselves into, and also to inspire others to do the same,” Robinson explained. “Arrow is the perfect platform to get this in front of the right someone who just needed a small push to hit the road with a tight-knit crew and do the same.”
