I knew Vincent D’Onofrio was secretly moonlighting as a serial killer. I mean, just look at the guy. Am I right? Not just any serial killer, either, but the kind that would kill some kid’s mother, take the kid home with him, and then use the kid not for some sexual gratification or some other sick, twisted thing, but as free labor. Cause, you know, he’s a kooky guy like that. That’s the premise of “Chained”, the new psychological horror flick from director Jennifer Lynch, who if you’ve seen the documentary “Despite the Gods” that chronicles the shooting of her movie “Hisss”, then you know this is exactly the type of stuff the lass was born to make.
From the mind of writer/director Jennifer Lynch comes the shocker that panicked ratings boards and stunned audiences worldwide: When he was 9 years old, Tim and his mother were abducted by taxi-driving serial killer Bob (an intensely disturbing performance by Vincent D’Onofrio). Tim’s mother was murdered. Tim was kept as a chained slave, forced to bury the bodies of young women Bob drags home and keep scrapbooks of the crimes. Now a teenager, Tim (Eamon Farren) and Bob share a depraved father/son/protege relationship. But who will ultimately sever the bond between ‘family’ and unimaginable horror? Jake Weber (“Medium”), Evan Bird (“The Killing”) and Julia Ormond (THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON, “Mad Men”) co-star in what critics are calling one of the most controversial and uncompromising thrillers of our time.
Also starring Julia Ormond, Jake Weber, Gina Phillips, and Eamon Farren.
Vincent comes for your kids August 5th, 2012.
