Hutson Ranch Media and Panic Ventures, Inc. announced today that the independent feature film The Id will have its Blu-ray home video release on Tuesday, October 25, 2016.
The psychological thriller tells the story of Meridith Lane (Amanda Wyss, A Nightmare on Elm Street), a woman who has felt trapped in her home. Thriving on memories of youth, she watches the years slip by while caring for her abusive father…until a figure from her past makes a surprising return. In order to live the life she desires, Meridith must confront her father’s monstrous cruelty and attempt to escape his tyrannical grip. But the man who controls her every move won’t let go without a fight, leading father and daughter into a series of desperate and irreversible acts.
“So much passion and energy went into the making of this film, and I am thrilled audiences will soon be able to experience the drama, suspense and horrors of this story,” says director and producer Thommy Hutson. “I believe it’s a film that will pull viewers in, make them think, make them uncomfortable and, hopefully, have them talking about the events and characters long after the credits have rolled. As a producer, it was a fantastic experience working with amazing talent and an incredible crew. As a first- time director, I’m ecstatic I was able to bring this kind of story to the screen.”
“Working on The Id gave me the chance to play one of the most challenging roles of my career, a character with so many layers and nuances that it was an emotional journey on and off the screen,” admits actress Amanda Wyss. “I can’t wait for people to see the film, go on Meridith’s wild ride and jump into the delicious stew of madness!”
On producing the film, Daniel Farrands states, “It was a remarkable journey from script to screen. Were it not for the drive, determination, talent and sheer force of will of Thommy, Amanda, and our incredible cast and the crew, this project simply would not have come to fruition. It was a true labor of love for everyone involved and it is extremely gratifying to see this mind-bender of a film be brought to audiences around the world.”
In addition to the feature film, the Blu-ray boasts a generous complement of bonus features, including a making-of featurette, audio commentary, deleted & alternate scenes, behind-the-scenes footage, audition clips, a photo gallery and trailers.
“We worked very hard to put together a package that would showcase not just the film, but the hard work, dedication and fun that went into making it,” explains Hutson.
