Virgil Films & Entertainment announced this past week that writer/director Jack Thomas Smith’s latest film, Infliction, will be heading to the DVD market place on July 1.
Using “found footage” as the overall story arch, filmmaker Jack Thomas Smith (Disorder) takes us for a ride-along (figuratively speaking) with two brothers (played by Jason Mac and Elliott Armstrong) who go on a killing spree.
Filmed in and around the Charlotte, North Carolina area, at first their actions seem senseless — simply killing for the sake of killing — but as Smith’s horrific tale unfolds the backstory is filled in. Their targets are not as random as they seem and even though the motivations remain on the unhinged side you can readily see how monsters are made in a society where children are allowed to fall through the cracks either deliberately or through willful neglect.
The early buzz for Infliction has been good — test and film fest screenings — and with the July 1 release date Virgil Films has plenty of time to beat the promotional drums for this one. For genre fans, especially with Smith’s track record, Infliction is certainly worth a look.
