Ghost story “FORECLOSURE,” with Michael Imperioli, moves into DVD/digitalMovies/TV,News Michael Gingold
The housing crisis is given a supernatural spin in FORECLOSURE, a chiller starring Michael Imperioli that’s coming home next month.
Virgil Films has announced a February 3 VOD date and Feb. 10 DVD release for FORECLOSURE; special disc features, if any, have yet to be revealed. Richard Ledes wrote and directed the movie, which was lensed by Frederic Fasano, the cinematographer of MOTHER OF TEARS and other Dario Argento films. The synopsis: “Bill Landopolous [Imperioli], his son Steven [Spencer List] and his father-in-law Ray [Bill Raymond] move into the Queens, New York home of their recently deceased relative Cal, who took his own life. The three hope to put their cares behind them and start afresh. But things get off to a shaky start when a local police officer [Matt Servitto] points out all the numerous foreclosures, bank-owned properties and short sales that have depopulated the once-attractive neighborhood he patrols. Will such a desolate street be healthy for these three damaged people?
“At first, moving into the new (old) house turns out to be a tonic for the stressed-out Bill. He cleans out Cal’s rank old refrigerator and spit-shines his business shoes. Bill even manages to tolerate the racist rants of his half-medicated, nearly senile father-in-law. But the rants, which begin as complaints about Bill’s Greek heritage, become an ever-present echo of the past when young Steven, exploring the dank basement, discovers an old black-and-white photograph of a lynching. Soon, Steven and his father and grandfather come to suspect that it’s not just the three of them living in the house.” Stay tuned for on-set coverage of FORECLOSURE at this site.
