The cast features Colin Woodell, Betty Gabriel, Rebecca Rittenhouse, Andrew Lees, Connor Del Rio, Stephanie Nogueras and Douglas Tait.

"Unfriended: Dark Web" opened in theaters on July 20, 2018 and received mixed reviews from critics.

remothered-tormented-fathers-game-pc-ps4-xbox-one

Remothered: Tormented Fathers Game Logo
Video Game Description: Remothered: Tormented Fathers is the pure and realistic survival horror videogame. A game by Darril Arts, directed by Chris Darril, developed by Stormind Games.

Psychology plays a huge role within the game: heroes and enemies are atypical and the line between good and evil is blurred. The plot is rich of unpredictable twists, but it is touching at the same time. The development of the game is similar to that of a film narration, where the player perfectly identifies himself with the character. The soundtrack, composed by Nobuko Toda (Final Fantasy, Halo, Metal Gear Solid) and Luca Balboni, enhances the terrifying atmosphere of the game.

The story revolves around Rosemary Reed, a fascinating 35-year-old woman, who reaches Richard Felton’s house, in order to investigate on the disappearance of a girl called Celeste. The woman is greeted by Gloria, the nurse who takes care of the old Richard. When Dr. Felton understands Rosemary’s true intentions, the dread begins.

Remothered: Tormented Fathers is the first title of the long-awaited 3rd person game trilogy. A web of lies where murders and obsessions come to life. A revolutionary experience created for survival horror fans.

Genre: Action, Adventure, Survival Horror

Publisher: Darril Arts

Developer: Stormind Games

Rating: M for Mature (Blood and Gore, Drug Reference, Intense Violence, Strong Language)

The biggest surprise was the Denzel Washington starrer "The Equalizer 2", which opened ahead of "Mamma Mia: Here We Go Again". The latter looked like it could top the charts, but ended up falling short of its optimistic projections. Another film that underperformed is the low-budget horror sequel "Unfriended: Dark Web"
