ANCHOR BAY FILMS GETS READY TO RUMBLE WITH BATTLE OF THE DAMNED STARRING DOLPH LUNDGREN

                         Bring The Battle Home on Blu-ray™ and DVD February 18, 2014

“Zombies. Killer Robots. Nice town you got here.” Anchor Bay Films presents BATTLE OF THE DAMNED, where you can pick your apocalypse – germ warfare, zombie assaults, and/or deadly robots!! With unrelenting action and unyielding suspense, BATTLE OF THE DAMNED commences February 18, 2014 on Blu-ray™ and DVD. 

When a deadly virus is accidentally released into a major city, its population is quarantined by military blockade. And for a wealthy industrialist desperate to rescue his daughter from inside the rabid chaos, his only hope is former commando Max Gatling (Lundgren). Now Gatling has one day to bust in, blast through hordes of the undead, find the girl, and hunt for a way to get them both out alive. But will a small band of survivors and an army of killer robots turn his mission into maximum slaughter? Matt Doran (THE MATRIX) and David Field (CHOPPER) co-star in this intense action shocker that TheActionElite.com calls “awesome badass…one of the craziest movies of Dolph’s career and arguably one of his best!”

 

 


Also starring Esteban Cueto (FAST FIVE, IRON MAN 2, THE SCORPION KING), BATTLE OF THE DAMNED is a terrifying look into the future. Set against a ravaged landscape, it is a battle against flesh and steel – a battle between outlaw and outbreak!

 

BATTLE OF THE DAMNED is written and directed by Christopher Hatton and produced by Ehud Bleiberg, Leon Tong and Hatton.

BEWARE OF THE DEMENTED FROM ANCHOR BAY FILMS

Horror films often take their cue from daily newspaper headlines, feeding on the all-too-real fears of the everyday world. Like the best science fiction, sometimes horror lies just around the corner or beyond the bend of what we know. On July 30th, Anchor Bay Films unleashes the biological warfare thriller THE DEMENTED on Blu-ray™/DVD combo pack and DVD. From the creative minds behind I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE and A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET, THE DEMENTED is a terrifying excursion into a plague-infected world...where one moment off guard is all that keeps us from becoming them. 



With a hot cast including Sarah Butler (I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE), Brittney Alger (21 JUMP STREET), Kayla Ewell (“THE VAMPIRE DIARIES”), Richard Kohnke (“THE CARRIE DIARIES”) and Michael Welch (THE TWILIGHT SAGA Franchise), THE DEMENTED will have you on the edge of your seat until the very last frame! 

THE DEMENTED follows six college friends as they meet up for a carefree weekend in a beautiful rural home. A terrorist missile attack in a nearby town infects much of the townspeople with a deadly virus that induces rabies-like symptoms...with devastating consequences. Ravenous and fast, the infected townspeople turn their sights on the vacation home where the friends are gathered...and are now barricaded. How long can they hide? Even with the infected “sleeping” in the streets, can they make their escape? If so, to what?
