Inside Pulse 12

Fender Bender smashes into October

Fender Bender promises to remind us why swapping your personal information after a minor wreck can lead to further destruction. A good horror premise always starts with an every day activity like backpacking through Scotland or showering in a cheap motel. The bonus feature I’m looking forward to watching is the Retro VHS version on the Blu-ray. This should take me back those glory days of finding odd tapes at Dave’s Videodrome in Carrboro. Here’s the press release from Scream Factory:

Intense Crash-and-Slash Thriller Makes its Blu-ray, DVD and Digital Debut
October 4th, 2016 from Scream Factory™

There are no accidents. He stalks the streets. Remorseless. Brutal. Bloodthirsty. When his prey is at its most vulnerable, he appears. And when night falls and all is quiet…he strikes. Prepare for the next driving force in horror with the October 4th, 2016 release of Fender Bender on Blu-ray, DVD and all major digital platforms from Scream Factory. Just in time for Halloween, this chilling feature also comes loaded with bonus features, including a “Retro VHS” cut of the film, audio commentary with the director, a behind the scenes featurette, a producer’s commentary, a collection of vintage slasher film trailers and more! Fans can pre-order their copies now by visiting ShoutFactory.com.

Evocative of the horror-thriller classics of yesteryear, Fender Bender brings you back to a time when the boxes on the shelf at your local video store beckoned you with masked, knife-wielding maniacs and a twisted sense of morals. Written and directed by Mark Pavia (Stephen King’s The Night Flier), the movie stars Makenzie Vega (The Good Wife), Dre Davis (Pretty Little Liars, Scavenger Killers), Cassidy Freeman (Smallville, Longmire) and Bill Sage (American Psycho, We Are What We Are).

Seventeen-year-old Hilary has just received her driver’s license… only to have her first accident shortly thereafter. Innocently exchanging her personal information with the remorseful stranger behind the wheel, Hilary returns home for a quiet evening with friends. But when the man she so readily handed all of her information to reveals himself to be something much darker and sinister than she could imagine, Hilary finds herself in a head-on collision with terror.
