Helmed by the legendary Arthur Penn (BONNIE AND CLYDE, LITTLE BIG MAN) and starring Academy Award winner Mary Steenburgen (MELVIN AND HOWARD), DEAD OF WINTER is a seasonal suspenser par excellence! Loosely inspired by the 1945 classic MY NAME IS JULIA ROSS, this eighties update presents Steenburgen as an aspiring actress who is lured out to a country retreat in Canada, in ice-cold weather, to audition for a well-paid dream job. Unfortunately for her, though, a sinister plan is being unravelled around her – which will culminate in entrapment, torment, torture and a blood curdling revelation! Co-featuring Roddy McDowall (PLANET OF THE APES), DEAD OF WINTER is a masterful mix of backwoods malevolence, mistaken identity and heightened horror film tension. There is little denying that DEAD OF WINTER is one of the highlights of the entire 88 Films Slasher Classics catalogue!
