LOS ANGELES, Sept. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Synergetic Distribution releases True Love Ways October 1st via streaming and digital download platforms. The movie is a fresh take on horror with some classic style.
What would happen if a French New Wave director was transported to the 21st century and decided to make a slasher? Writer/director Mathieu Selier boldly goes there, delivering a film of beauty and violence in stunning black and white. Erotic and dynamic, it's got enough to satisfy horror aficionados and art house fans alike.
This story of a young woman dissatisfied with love starts simply enough, but after a few sharp turns, True Love Ways descends into an expertly choreographed waltz of carnage and bloodlust. Luckily, it's not all empty spectacle. There's a narrative at work that explores feminism, sexuality, and storytelling itself. And thanks to the revival of black and white films-- exemplified by the Oscar-winning The Artist (2011), the popularity of Francis Ha (2012) and the critical success of Nebraska (2013)-- it's about time for horror to get the treatment.
Séverine becomes the victim of a twisted plot when, in an attempt to win her back, her boyfriend Tom makes a deal with a mysterious man. The man constructs a plot to kidnap Séverine, giving Tom the chance to play the hero. When the situation gets out of control and Séverine faces her sadistic kidnappers, it turns into a bloody battle for survival.
