Indican Pictures, which will distribute ‘Silent But Deadly’ on February 25 via Video On Demand and in retail stores, released the following synopsis for the movie:
Somebody is killing old farts. The weapon of choice: a secret. They are being offed by a masked killer who stalks the halls of the small retirement community in which they live. Full of laughs and full of scares – you’ll be on the edge of your seat from the moment you enter the world of the Lake View Retirement Home: The place where people come to live… until the die!
‘Silent But Deadly’ stars Jacqui Holland, Lee Meriwether, Martin Kove, John Tartaglia, Rip Taylor, David Proval, Robert Towers, Camille Saviola and Kiersten Warren. It has garnered awards and accolades at several film festivals, including the Los Angeles Comedy Festival, Hoboken International Film Festival, Sunscreen Film Festival and Myrtle Beach International Film Festival. The film won Best Director for Lockhart and Best Actress for Jacqui Holland at the Hoboken International Film Festival. The comedy was also nominated for Best Feature Film, Best of the Fest, Best Director, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress and Best Cinematography at the Hoboken International Film Festival.
“The title alone made us laugh, but when we watched the film it not only delivered over-the-top humor, but was filled with great performances! This cast possessed perfect comedic timing,” said Randolph Kret, the Vice President of Indican Pictures. “‘Silent But Deadly’ will appeal to both young and old with its mix of kooky old folks tearing it up in an old age home.”
