Open Windows stars Elijah Wood and Sasha Grey

24/03/2015

Open Windows, a new thriller from Vendetta Films, will premiere on Blu-ray and DVD in Australia and New Zealand. Release date is April 22.

Written and directed by Nacho Vigalondo, the Spanish director behind Timecrimes and The ABCs of Death, Open Windows stars Elijah Wood whose career has been revitalised in recent acclaimed thrillers such as Maniac and Grand Piano, and former porn performer Sasha Grey, star of Steven Soderbergh's The Girlfriend Experience.

Nick (Wood) is excited to discover that he's won a dinner date with his favourite actress, Jill Goddard (Sasha Grey). But when Jill refuses to honour the contest, her manager Chord (Neil Maskell) makes an offer he can't refuse: the ability to view Jill secretly via computer. Nick begins watching the unknowing star on her webcam, not realizing that this decision will put both himself and Jill at risk as they enter a terrifying world of cat-and-mouse where nothing-and no one-are as they seem.

Multiple award winner at horror and genre festivals around the world most especially for the cutting of editor Bernat Vilaplana, Open Windows explores celebrity obsession and the shifting power dynamic between fans and the celebrities whose tawdry careers are reliant upon those fans.

Marc Savlov at the Austin Chronicle writes "Open Windows has plenty to say about both the death of privacy and the dominion of the always-connected digiverse we now inhabit, and editor Bernat Vilaplana does a remarkable job of keeping the film's frenetic pace rushing headlong toward an ending that you'll never see coming."
