Tyler Savage's tale of obsession and terror will make its world debut at Arrow Video Frightfest 2020 Digital Edition. Inspired by being raised in Los Angeles, Savage has aimed to create a morally ambiguous story that will have viewers questioning how we relate to each other in a world so dominated by social media. He says of the film:

It feels like we live in a world where appearance has won out over reality, where truth is cheap and irrelevant, and where the bad guys win because they know how to manipulate our collective vulnerabilities.

My hope is that when people watch Blinders they’re encouraged to think about the times we live in, and the aspects of ourselves that we might be losing touch with. But I also obviously hope they’re simply entertained, because it's that spoonful of sugar that helps the medicine go down. It's wonderfully strange how created realities give us the freedom to look at things in a new light.

Vincent Van Horn and Michael Lee Joplin headline the cast as Andy and Roger, two lonely souls whose paths cross during one fateful drive. When Andy forms a blossoming connection with the beautiful Sam, played by Christine Ko ( Amazon's Upload, Dave), Roger quickly turns obsessive with disastrous consequences. Savage, who previously directed 2017's Inheritance, directed Blinders from a script he co-wrote with Dash Hawkins, and they produced alongside J.P. Castel, Chadd Harbold and Daniel Pisano.


In the wake of a messy break-up, Andy decides to start fresh, relocating from Austin to Los Angeles. Eager to make new connections, he befriends Roger, an unusual rideshare driver. But when Roger's behavior gets too strange for comfort, Andy blows him off, choosing to focus on a budding relationship with Sam. This unhinges Roger, who begins to torment Andy, ensuring that his stay in L.A. is short-lived.
