Parade Deck Films, with sales and distribution support provided by MVD Entertainment Group, has tabbed Jan. 17 as the DVD debut date for the directing and writing team of Jason and Todd Freeman’s Before I Die.
Filmed on location in and around Oregon City, Oregon (on the Willamette River just outside of Portland), the Brothers Freeman adapted their father’s novel, “My Soul to Take,” which focuses on a pastor named Dan Bennett (Robert McKeehen), his wife Cindy (Audrey Walker) and their children Sara (Cheyenne Canfield) and Aaron (Elijah Nelson) and their idyllic relocation to a “perfect” small town, plus the foster teen, Sally (Nouel Riel) who lives with them.
Dan’s new congregation is nothing like he expected — they seem very much set in their ways and have many “secrets” that they are reluctant to share with their new pastor. Indeed, creepy is the operative word, especially Ethan (Michael J. Prosser), there is definitely something amiss with that fellow, but he is just the proverbial “tip of the iceberg.”
Throw in a very confrontational stalker, who has designs on Sally, and Pastor Bennett’s perfect little hamlet quickly becomes his own twisted and very personal nightmare.
