Tricia Lee's First Two Films Now Available on DVD in the US

For a while now we've been talking about Canadian film maker Tricia Lee. We took a long look at her sophomore feature, Silent Retreat (review HERE) about a year ago, and have been chronicling the production of her latest venture One Drop (HERE). Check out some info on the U.S. DVD release of both Silent Retreat, and Lee's debt feature Clean Break:

"From the darkest corners of the woods, to the seemingly safe bedroom next door, there’s no place to hide from director Tricia Lee’s special brand of horror. Having thrilled and chilled audiences in Canada and across the world, her first two films, Silent Retreat and Clean Break are coming to DVD in the United States.

Available now in all DVD outlets including Amazon, Best Buy, Barnes & Nobles, Walmart and Target, Silent Retreat, tells the story of Janey (Chelsea Jenish), a troubled teen who is sent to a silent meditation retreat in the middle of the woods for rehabilitation. The doctor (Robert Nolan) who runs the facility uses unorthodox methods to control the girls, and those who fail to embrace his silence will discover that there is something more dangerous lurking beyond the trees.

Winner of Best Canadian Feature at Toronto After Dark Film Festival and an official selection of The Nocturna International Fantastic Film Festival, Silent Retreat has been called, “a tense little beast of a movie that has some powerfully terrifying moments,” by Mark L. Miller of Ain’t It Cool News, and a film that “beautifully blends supernatural horror with the terrors of the real world” by Rue Morgue.

With strong performances, chilling suspense, and a blood soaked finale, Silent Retreat is sure to make you think twice before heading into the woods.

Coming out on DVD and now available on iTunes, Tricia Lee’s first feature Clean Break, takes the terror out of the woods and puts it right in the middle of your living room. For Cam Dawson (Samy Osman), living the single life is all he’s ever wanted, but when his roommate Scott (Sean Kaufmann) gets into a relationship with the seemingly fantastic Tracy (Tianna Nori), his life gets complicated. When Cam tries to break up Tracy and Scott, she does everything she can to protect her perfect relationship, even if it means eliminating the excess baggage.

Winner of Best Drama at the Atlanta Horror Film Festival, Clean Break features chilling performances by Tianna Nori (The Demolisher) and Samy Osman (Nikita), who both received widespread praise at Toronto’s Blood in the Snow Festival for their fiery, combative, and ultimately bloody relationship. A passion project for all involved, Clean Break was sparked by the idea that you can choose your roommates, but not who they date.

Lee and long-time writing partner Corey Brown are making a big splash in indie horror. Their next film One Drop will be hitting the film festival circuit soon. Now is your chance to catch up on their humble beginnings with their no-budget terrors and watch as they are on the rise with some awesome new films coming out very soon!"
