Exclusive Trailer Premiere: “THE DROWNSMAN”

The highlight of last year’s Toronto After Dark Fest, THE DROWNSMAN has been one of the most anticipated indie horror titles in recent memories, sporting an evocative poster and clever premise. But now, ahead of its impending North American Release, FANGORIA has the exclusive premiere of the all-new-trailer for Chad Archibald’s water-bound chiller!

For those unfamiliar, here’s the official synopsis:

After almost drowning in a lake, Madison finds herself bound to a life of fear. Unable to describe what happened to her during the moments she was underwater, Madison begins to develop hydrophobia: an abnormal fear of water. Crippled by her trauma, Madison attempts to shut out the world around her, but her fear intensifies when she begins to be haunted by the vision of an evil figure. After watching her struggle for over a year, Madison’s four friends stage an intervention in a desperate attempt to help. In doing so, they accidentally open a floodgate to a dark place where none of them are safe. As Madison and her friends dive deeper into the dark history of the evil that haunts them, they’re dragged one by one to a horrifying place where they may never return.


THE DROWNSMAN hits DVD/Blu-ray on May 12th from Anchor Bay Entertainment in the U.S. and Canada. Look for more coverage on THE DROWNSMAN in the near future; until then, check out the DVD Cover Art and exclusive trailer below!
