Jennifer Lynch's Chained was one of my surprise hits of Frightfest 2012, and my second favourite film of the festival. Thankfully, genre heavy-hitters Anchor Bay have picked it up for distribution in the UK on DVD and Blu-ray from the 4th February.
From the mind of writer/director Jennifer Lynch comes the shocker that stunned audiences worldwide: When he was 9 years old, Tim and his mother were abducted by taxi-driving serial killer Bob (an intensely disturbing performance by Vincent D’Onofrio). Tim’s mother was murdered. Tim was kept as a chained slave, forced to bury the bodies of young women Bob drags home and keep scrapbooks of the crimes. Now a teenager, Tim (Eamon Farren) and Bob share a depraved father/son/protégé relationship. But who will ultimately sever the bond between ‘family’ and unimaginable horror? Jake Weber (Medium), Evan Bird (The Killing) and Julia Ormond (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Mad Men) co-star in what critics are calling one of the most controversial and uncompromising thrillers of our time.
