Anchor Bay Acquires the Canadian Post-Apocalyptic Thriller The Collapsed

Anchor Bay has recently snagged distribution rights to the critically-acclaimed post-apocalyptic thriller “The Collapsed”, which follows a family of four as they attempt to travel from the city to a rural community in the middle of nowhere. Not surprisingly, they encounter all sorts of dangerous elements along the way. The film has received quite a bit of praise from an assortment of websites, so I’m quite excited to get my grubby little hands on a copy of the flick. If everything goes according to plan, Anchor Bay will release “The Collapsed” onto DVD and VOD sometime next year. I honestly can’t wait.

Need a synopsis? Well, here you go, my friend:

In the wake of the end of the world, a family of four desperately tries to survive against insurmountable odds. Their goal: escaping the city and traveling to the rural community they once called home, Dover’s Bend.

The constant threat of a violent death forcing them to stay as far away from civilization as possible, they take to the forest, soon to discover the danger posed by other survivors may be the least of their worries.
