Director James Cullen Bressack returns to the horror genre with the latest film Captors.
The horror film follows a young woman who is traumatized by a sex trafficker and manages to escape his clutches. However, she inherits a house from the captor and is then haunted by his dead spirit.
The film stars Yulia Klass (Death Rider, Beyond the Law), Michael Pare (Gone, The Virgin Suicides), and Bruce Davison (X-Men, The Crucible).
Here is the official synopsis:
Human trafficking victim Alys narrowly escaped her captor ten years ago. Now homeless and troubled, she finds hope when a relative leaves her his house. But after moving into the remote, snowbound mansion, Alys is haunted by horrific memories and surreal hallucinations—and after finding a DVD with her name on it, she is forced to confront her own past. Are the dangers Alys encounters just a fever dream, or are they real, and deadly?
