The synopsis: “Two estranged brothers reunite seven months after their father’s disappearance to liquidate his anemic video store. While there, they unearth an old VCR board game that acts as an interdimensional hub to a nightmare world where their father’s soul is trapped and can only be saved by playing the game. The film is an adventure horror that pays loving tribute to the VHS format, video stores and board games of the era.” Keep your eyes here for further news!
