Two years ago, Anchor Bay and director Adam Green froze us all to death with the thriller Frozen. Now, two years later Anchor Bay once again wants to take our bodies to the extreme (at least temperature wise) with 247°F, the directorial debut from Levan Bakhia. Check out the official press release below, as well as an unofficial trailer.
ANCHOR BAY FILMS LEAVES YOU TWO DEGREES AWAY FROM DEATH WITH 247°F
On October 23rd, Anchor Bay Films presents a claustrophobic horror film that gives you no choice but to sweat with 247°F , starring such genre favorites as Scout Taylor-Compton (Rob Zombie’s Halloween & Halloween II), Christina Ulloa (“Californication,” “Charmed”), Travis Van Winkle (“Happy Endings,” Friday the 13th remake, Transformers), and Tyler Mane (Rob Zombie’s Halloween & Halloween II, X-Men).
Jenna (Scout Taylor-Compton) is traumatized when she is trapped in a small vehicle after a car accident, forced to observe the mangled corpse of her fiancée in the driver’s seat until help arrives. Fast forward three years, Jenna and her three friends travel to a lakeside cabin for a carefree weekend. The fun quickly becomes a nightmare when three of them end up locked in a compact, hot sauna. As fear sets in and Jenna reconnects with the horror of “the incident,” every minute counts and every degree matters as they fight for their lives in heat that is quickly approaching 247°F – the temperature when the human body expires. See Scout Taylor-Compton and Tyler Mane reunited for the first time since the Rob Zombie’s Halloween films in a thriller that will satisfy just about everything — but your thirst.
UPDATE: The 247°F Blu-ray™ and DVD includes audio commentary with writer / producer / director Levan Bakhia and deleted scenes.
