Recently, we’ve been getting a lot of unsolicited screeners and press materials for indie horror/scifi films that are direct to VOD/DVD.

Directed By Tyler Savage
Portola Pictures has announced the June 15th Digital HD release of Tyler Savage’s Inheritance. Savage directed from his own script, putting a chilling twist on the universal feeling of being trapped by your family history, for better or worse. Following the world premiere at Dances with Films, Inheritance has received high marks at festivals around the country. Dread Central raved, “Savage uses the dark essences of an even more gloomy past to highlight this modern-day ghost story.”
Tyler Savage makes his feature film debut alongside executive producer Nicholas Gonda (Tree of Life), cinematographer Drew Daniels (Krisha, It Comes At Night) and producers J.P. Castel (Krisha), Dash Hawkins (Party Crashers), and Chase Joliet (It Comes at Night), who also leads the cast. Inheritance is now available to rent or own on iTunes and Amazon Instant Video June 15th.
