Nothing like the feeling of inescapable suffocation at the hands of your own family history; being haunted by consequences of the past. Tyler Savage recognized the very real potential to translate this concept to film, and even better for fans like us, specifically the horror/thriller genre. Here's your chance now, to experience it as it premiers.
Portola Pictures has announced the World Premiere of Tyler Savage's Inheritance at the 20th Dances With Films Festival. 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. He 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 will premiere at Dances With Films at the TCL Chinese 6 Theaters June 2nd.
Joliet is joined onscreen by Sara Montez ("Pitch"), Tim Abell (Sniper: Special Ops), Kate Norby (The Devil's Rejects), Dale Dickey (Hell or High Water, "True Blood"), Krisha Fairchild (Krisha) and Drew Powell ("Gotham"). The film was shot on location along the California coast and LA-based indie pop band Mini Mansions provided the score.

As a looming family presence tightens its grip on him, Ryan pushes away his adoptive family and expectant fiancé. When he finally discovers the horrifying truth about his birth parents, he might be too late to stop himself from repeating a similar pattern...
