Anchor Bay Films releases THE CURSE OF DOWNERS GROVE in theaters August 21 and on VOD, DVD and Blu-ray on September 1. PSYCHO’s Bret Easton Ellis scripted the movie with director Derick Martini, from the novel DOWNERS GROVE by Michael Hornburg, and the cast is headed by Lucas Till, Bella Heathcote, Penelope Mitchell, Kevin Zegers and Tom Arnold. The synopsis: “The town of Downers Grove looks like your average suburban neighborhood—but Downers Grove has a disturbing secret… For the past eight years, one senior from every high-school graduating class has met a bizarre death right before graduation day. And this year, Chrissie Swanson [Heathcote] has a terrible feeling that she is going to be the one to die. Can Chrissie survive the curse of Downers Grove or will she, like those seniors before her, fall prey to the town’s deadly secret?”
