    Horror flick Grace arrives in US homes this September

    "A satirical creepfest that mines modern motherhood for all its latent terrors..."
    -- Variety




    A Genre Sensation Arrives September 15th Swaddled With Bonus Features

    BEVERLY HILLS, CA - An absolute sensation at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival - where two people fainted during the film's premiere - and a runaway hit on the international film festival circuit, Paul Solet's Grace will bow September 15, 2009 on DVD and Blu-ray™. Grace is an unforgettable emotional and psychological journey into terror, as a young woman (Jordan Ladd, Cabin Fever, Quentin Tarantino's Death Proof) is forced to make the ultimate maternal sacrifice when the stillborn child she carried to term returns to life with a horrifying appetite. Pre-book is August 13, and SRP is $26.97 for the DVD, and $34.97 for the Blu-ray™. Grace is produced by Ingo Volkhammer, Cory Neal, Adam Green and Kevin DeWalt. Neal and Green are the writing/directing/producing team behind the contemporary cult classics Hatchet and Spiral.

    After years of trying to conceive, Madeline (Ladd) and Michael Matheson (Stephen Park, Scary Movie 3, The Pink Panther) are finally about to become parents. But with only weeks to go before delivery, an accident leaves both Michael and the unborn child dead.  Devastated, Madeline decides to carry the child to term and deliver naturally.  What seemed like madness becomes a miracle when, after delivering a dead child, Madeline finds her baby is indeed alive…and hungry. She soon discovers that her baby - now named Grace - thirsts for something more than mother's milk, and Madeline is determined to feed her child, no matter the consequences. With nowhere to turn, Madeline must make a mother's ultimate decision: What will she sacrifice to keep her child alive? 

      Grace has wowed - and terrified - audiences all over the world. In addition to Sundance, the film was an official selection at the South by Southwest Festival, the AFI Dallas Film Festival, the Independent Film Festival of Boston, the San Francisco International Film Festival, the Seattle International Film Festival, as well as the upcoming Sitges International Film Festival of Catalonia, Spain, Puchon International Fantastic Film Festival and Montreal's Fantasia Film Festival. Other festival screenings include Portugal's Fantasporto Festival, Athens Science Fiction and Fantasy Festival and Scotland's Film Four Frightfest. In February, Grace was awarded the Prix Du Jury Award at the Gerardmer Festival Du Fantastique 2009 in France.

    Hailed as "downright chilling" by Variety, and "… a blood-soaked piece of social commentary" by MSN, Grace has emerged among critics as nothing short of a genre phenomenon.  Cinematical wrote: "First-time writer-director Paul Solet…proves himself adept both as a visual storyteller, and as a guy who can make you crap your pants," while EOnline bluntly stated: "Let this be a warning: View at your own risk."

    Grace on DVD and Blu-ray cradles a bundle of bonus features charting the film's conception, execution and delivery:
