Dec. 07--The trailer and release date for the Scorned, a movie filmed in Scioto County, has been released.
Anchor Bay Films will release Scorned direct-to-DVD, Blu-Ray and digital download Feb. 4.
According to released information about the film, "Sadie (Anna Lynne McCord) and Kevin (Billy Zane, who also played a role in the blockbuster Titanic) have decided to spend a romantic weekend together at his lake house. But when an unexpected and unfortunate text from her best friend Jennifer (Viva Bianca) to Kevin reveals a lurid love affair between the two, Sadie spirals into a hunger for revenge that is without mercy.
Scorned, was created along the lines of the movies, Misery and Fatal Attraction. Scorned is both a multi-dimensional study of a twisted, tormented character and a seductive thriller. It is the story of a woman overcome with a fury that is unheard of in heaven and unmatched in hell."
The film is directed by Mark Jones, director and writer of the cult favorite, Leprechaun series. The production company Portsmouth Pictures that was part of the making of the film is headed by Portsmouth Native Lance Thompson, a 1974 graduate of Portsmouth High School.
The script original called for a beach house in Malibu, but Thompson felt the movie could work just as well in the hills of Appalachia Ohio.
The Ohio Department of Development provided Portsmouth Pictures production studio the Ohio Motion Picture Tax Credit in the amount of $727,108 to film in the Buckeye state.
The movie itself, however, is not set in Portsmouth, Thompson said.
"I'd be lying if I said it wasn't challenging, because it is. But it's been worthwhile," Thompson said.
Scorned will be available for a SRP (Suggested Retail Price) of $29.99 for the Blu-Ray and $24.98 for the DVD.
The film runs 86 minutes and is rated R for violence, including torture, sexual content and language.
