Arrow Video has announced the release of Director Rob Grant’s dark-comedy horror, Harpoon (2019), on Blu-ray. Stars Brett Gelman and Munro Chambers.
They say every story about love, friendship and betrayal extol a key lesson in virtue and morality. This is not one of those stories.
Jonah (Munro Chambers, Turbo Kid), Richard (Christopher Gray, TV s The Mist) and Sasha (Emily Tyra, Code Black) have been friends for a long time… maybe too long. Following a ferocious bust-up, Richard tries to make amends in the form of a sailing trip on his family yacht. After all, a friendship is the kind of ship that never sinks until the yacht breaks down and the trio is left stranded in the middle of the ocean.
As food and water supplies start to sink and rivalries, dark secrets and sexual tension start to surface, the question becomes: which of these three broken humans will run out of air first?
Dubbed a twisty little thriller (Eye For Film) that will appeal to horror lovers everywhere (Love Horror), Harpoon is Edgar Allan Poe by way of Seinfeld and an exercise in brilliant pacing, direction, and acting.
As the story takes darkly comedic and always unexpected turns, the three leads crescendo into a culmination of their respective crises of conscience except for the crisis here is that they have no conscience. Welcome aboard!
