An entrancing film that takes aging to new horrifying levels, Don’t Grow Up arrives on Blu-ray, DVD, Combo Pack and Digital HD on July 3. With a “mix of likable teen drama and Carpenter-esque horror” (Variety), director Thierry Poiraud (Goal of the Dead) crafts a world of terror where the chances of survival are limited.
In the outskirts of London, six teens find themselves without supervision and immediately take to making the most of their new liberty. No longer limited to the space of their detention center, they explore the inner city with Liam (McKell David, “Marcella”) as their self-appointed leader. After Liam’s girlfriend (Natifa Mai, The Interceptor) walks off after an argument, she has an aggressive confrontation with the group’s supervisor that leaves her wounded. Discovering that the attack is not isolated and is the result of a widespread epidemic that leaves children and adolescents unaffected, the group must defend themselves against manic adults, paranoid children and, ultimately, their own maturity.
Special features include behind the scenes with director Thierry Poiraud, ‘Making of Don’t Grow Up’ and a look inside at the cast and their characters. Don’t Grow Up will be available on Blu-ray, DVD and Combo Pack for the suggested retail price of $29.98, $26.98 and $32.98, respectively, and on Digital HD via iTunes, Prime Video, FandangoNOW, Google Play and additional digital retailers on July 3.
A group of teenage delinquents living in a youth center wake up to find themselves all alone with no one to watch over them. The teens celebrate their newfound freedom by partying, playing loud music and visualizing a life without guardians. After the excitement fades, they decide to leave the group home for good. Upon arriving in the nearby town, they find the streets deserted, and in a post-apocalyptic state. The few adults they do encounter all seem to be infected by a mysterious epidemic, making them blood-thirsty and psychotic. In order to survive, they need to band together and find a route to safety.
