Uncork’d Entertainment is bringing Dead By Dawn to home video platforms this April, a flick best described as the most dark and horrific take on Home Alone ever constructed.

Joe* has been left home alone…due to the death of his child. At his lowest point, he puts a gun into his mouth and prepares to pull the trigger — but just then, a loud noise saves his life. Some woman, battered and bruised, is seeking sanctuary inside his house.

*Neither the press release nor the trailer gave this guy’s actual name, but we needed something there. His name probably isn’t Joe.

Who is she? She won’t say….all she’ll tell him is that she escaped from three sadistic murderers who are now looking for her, and they’ll probably track her down to his cabin. With the distance to the police too remote, and cell phone service unreachable, there’s only one way to handle this….fight back! They booby trap the house and fashion weapons to stop the killers when they arrive to finish the job.

Dead By Dawn stars Jamie Bernadette (I Spit On Your Grave : Déjà vu), Drew Lindsey Mitchell, Kelcey Watson, Bo Burroughs, Timothy Muskatell, Bobby Slaski, Detra Hicks, and Skylar Dominique. It was directed by Sean Cain, and it’ll be out on DVD and digital April 7.

A suicidal man in a remote cabin is suddenly faced with protecting a kidnapped woman from three killers and their sadistic games. Unable to contact the outside world and with night falling, he falls backs on creating traps to prevent the criminals from gaining entry. It’s a fight to the death where only the strongest will survive until dawn.
