The Fields hits Blu-ray and DVD

The latest release from Breaking Glass Pictures, The Fields, is all set to hit Blu-ray and DVD on April 24th. The film stars Tara Reid, Cloris Leachman and Joshua Ormond and is directed by Tom Mattera and David Mazzoni and is based on actual events. It has also done rather well on the Festival circuit.

The film received awards at the Erie Film Festival (Best Directors, Best Actress for Leachman), Terror Film Festival (Best Feature, Best Actress for Leachman, Best Emerging Actor for Ormond), Philadelphia Terror Film Festival (Best Picture, Best Emerging Actor for Ormond, Sound Design, Score) and the Best Picture Award at the Buffalo Niagara Film Festival.
Based on actual events, The Fields follows a young boy named Steven during the summer of 1973. Steven (Ormond) is sent to live in the Pennsylvania countryside with his grandparents while his mother (Reid) and father (Faust Checho) work through their marital troubles. Though his grandmother (Leachman) and grandfather (Bev Appleton) are happy to host him, they warn Steven not to enter the cornfields next to their house.
Meanwhile, Steven hears news of the notorious Manson Family and their gruesome killing spree. He develops a morbid fascination with the murderous cult and at the same time can't help but be drawn into the cornfields, where he makes a terrible discovery. Though Steven's family tries to protect him, whatever's lurking in the fields is about to make their lives a living nightmare.
The DVD and Blu-Ray is loaded with special features including a making-of documentary, behind-the-scenes footage, hilarious Leachman outtakes, interviews with the real people involved and clips from the world premiere.
