Buffalo8 is excited to announce the North American VOD release of The Hive, the debut feature film from writer-director Jared Allmond. The new independent film offers a spine-tingling horror-thriller that plays upon the universal fear of one’s home being invaded by strangers.
The Hive follows Albie and Penny Jones, a married couple, who while attempting to work on their strained relationship, find their lives suddenly turned upside down when their home is invaded by mysterious armed intruders. With nowhere to turn for help, Albie takes matters into his own hands, risking everything to protect his wife. But the intruders have already infiltrated the couple’s inner circle, trapping them in a terrifying web of compromised allies and sinister motives. Pushed to their limits, Albie and Penny must find a way to survive the brutal home invasion and overcome the internal turmoil threatening to destroy their marriage.
Check out the trailer for The Hive below:
While The Hive may seem like a film that plays on people’s natural fear of their homes being invaded, the film has greater goals beyond thrills and suspense. At its core, The Hive explores a fraying marriage under extreme duress. This symbolic tale of marital strife intends to resonate as a cautionary tale. By forcing the characters to confront the fissures in their marriage and descend into darker territory, The Hive hopes to lead audiences to reflect on nurturing bonds amid adversity. Thrusting its protagonists into peril, The Hive looks to craft a thriller that sticks with viewers, serving as a warning about the fragility of human connections.
With its fresh take on the home invasion thriller and a strong cast led by Timothy Haug and Christie Griffin, The Hive looks to deliver plenty of suspense, surprises, and scares. But it also provides deeper metaphorical meaning. Horror fans won’t want to miss out when The Hive debuts on cable and digital VOD on October 27, including Prime Video, Vudu, Vubiquity, Cox, and Comcast.
