According to The Hollywood Reporter, Breaking Glass Pictures has acquired the independent horror film SYMPATHY for DVD release under its genre-centric Vicious Circle banner. Directed by Andrew Moorman from a script by Arik Martin (the two also produced), the movie won raves when it played festivals including Screamfest a couple of years back.
Marina Shtelen (pictured) stars as Sara, a teenaged girl who’s been kidnapped by a criminal named Trip (Steven Pritchard) on the run from a bank robbery. They hole up at a remote motel where Trip handcuffs Sara to the bed, but things get complicated—and bloody—when Dennis (Aaron Bouchard), an escaped convict, joins the party.
