Extremity – Canada, 2018

Extremity is an upcoming 2018 Canadian horror feature film directed by Anthony DiBlasi (Most Likely to Die; Last ShiftCassadaga) from a screenplay by producer David Bond (Boogeyman: Reincarnation; The Profane Exhibit) and Scott Swan (Maskhead; Masters of Horror). The Dark Elegy Films production stars Dana Christina, Chad Rook and J. LaRose.

Plot:

Allison, a young woman with a severely troubled past signs up for an extreme haunt called Perdition. She believes that putting herself through Perdition’s nightmarish trials will help her exorcise her internal traumas, but has no way of knowing just how shocking her ordeal will be-or what dark secrets buried in her psyche will emerge…

Reviews:

” …Extremity’s uninteresting agenda does emulate the senselessly demented, narratively bereft sleaze of an extreme haunt like McKamey Manor. Boomeranging back an ironic line from the movie’s laughably insincere derision of uptight prudes who make “horror is evil” claims, “Extremity” amounts to directionless “smut dressed up as entertainment.” Ian Sedensky, Culture Crypt

” …adapting to any genre with ease, DiBlasi transcends the genre here. He is able to deliver in every aspect, from uneasy tension to stomach churning acts of violence, but also tells a sad yet empowering story beneath the bloody surface. Extremity is horrifying in both the ways of the horror genre and also in a heart wrenching, emotionally gut punching fashion.” Ryan Larson, Ghastly Grinning

“With a mixture of cheap shock horror, undeveloped good ideas and confusing expositional sections the film ends up being an unmemorable horror film which doesn’t stand out from the pack.” Casey Evans, Movie Ramblings

Extremity was released on Blu-ray and VOD by Epic Pictures’ Dread Central Presents imprint on October 2, 2018.
