A Friendly Reunion Turns Deadly in THE PIT

Samera Entertainment invites you to take a look at this isolated thriller from Midnight Releasing.

Coming to VOD this August, the limits of survival are given the ultimate test in THE PIT, a horrifying survival drama from Midnight Releasing.


Danny (Lee Stroud) and Arron (Stacy Brown Jr.) are old friends who haven't seen each other in seventeen years. They decide to reunite for a hiking trip. But when they fall deep into a rocky chasm, they soon realize just how much the other has changed over the years as their isolation together threatens to annihilate the last vestiges of their hope and humanity.


Co-star Stacy Brown Jr. also writes and directs this intense thriller, which examines the true animal instincts of man when all hope is lost.

"The Pit was a dream come true and a nightmare all rolled into one. When I say our blood sweat and tears went into it, I mean it. "


-- Stacy Brown Jr.

The Pit also stars Jessica Parker, Donnell Bobo, Vinny Evans, Christian Chapa, Svetlana Dashevskaya, Allison Brown, Evette Young, Lady Gaines, and Bryan E. Godier. Steven Stafford served as the producer on the film, which was a true labor of love for all involved.

"From building the set with my father, to getting to act alongside my daughter, it was a dream come true. Then the day after finishing filming, my father passed, and my dog passed a few months later. I often believed the film was cursed. Yet we finished it, and I couldn't be more proud"

Whether The Pit is cursed or not is debatable, but one thing is certain, The Pit is an authentic, one of a kind look at the dark side of male bonding. The kind of movie that might make you think twice before you consider reuniting with old friends.

"Stories like The Pit always terrify me. Imagine being stuck in a trench in the middle of nowhere. It's dark. It's cold. You have nothing. On top of that, you can't leave. It is an entirely horrible scenario."


-- Darrin Ramage (CEO Midnight Releasing)
