Disturbing British Thriller CRUEL SUMMER Comes To DVD/VOD In February

The tough thriller is out on DVD & VOD 6th February, courtesy of Solo Media and Matchbox Films.







Last year we were impressed by an early look at Cruel Summer, a disturbing UK indie based on true events. A distressing watch, it's the plucked from the headlines story of the victimisation of a young autistic man by a sadistic group of teens. Directors Phillip Escott and Craig Newman's film will now arrive on DVD and VOD on February 6th.


The official synopsis reads:

Danny (Richard Pawulski), a teenager with autism, escapes the inner city for the beautiful countryside as part of his Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme. Little does he know, that bitter Nicholas (Danny Miller; Emmerdale) is hunting him, stemming from a lie created by the enamoured and envious Julia (Natalie Martins) and new boy Calvin (Reece Douglas; Waterloo Road). As the three close in on Danny, Nicholas’ behaviour becomes increasingly erratic and violent, Julia and Calvin must decide whether to go through with Nicholas’ deadly plan.
