You can bring home the elevating horror of this indie favorite on DVD this June. Otis will be released on DVD and Blu-Ray on June 20. The standard disc will be priced at $24.98 while the Blu-Ray version will cost $28.99. The film stars Daniel Stern, Illeana Douglas, Kevin Pollack, Jere Burns, Tarah Paige and Bostin Christopher as the title character.
Otis is a story of suburban America gone haywire. In the midst of a serial abductor/killer's rampage, a beautiful young teen, Riley Lawson(Ashley Johnson), goes missing. When her desperate parents, Will and Kate (Daniel Stern and Illeana Douglas), are contacted by her kidnapper, an insufferable FBI Special Agent (Jere Burns) takes charge of the case.
But, from deep within the psychopathic subterranean world created by Otis (Bostin Christopher), Riley turns the tables on her tormentor, manages to escape and to contact her parents. Fed up with the tragi-comic inability of the FBI to find their girl, Will, Kate and Riley's brother, Reed (Jared Kusnitz), decide to take matters - and justice - into their own hands. But when Otis' brother, Elmo (Kevin Pollak), shows up unexpectedly, the Lawsons find themselves mired in one of the more unusual and macabre consequences of vigilantism.
Far from proclaiming 'Mission Accomplished,' the backed-in-a-corner Lawsons will further complicate their already deadly predicament with a surprising, unfortunate and frankly hilarious final choice.
