In the tradition of The Shining and Rosemary’s Baby, this chilling new horror film premieres on Blu-ray™ and DVD today from Image Entertainment. Written and directed by award-winning filmmaker Robert O’hara and featuring an all-star cast including Golden Brooks (“Girlfriends”), two-time Emmy® Award-winner Keith David (Requiem for a Dream), DB Woodside (“24”), and Darrin Dewitt Henson (Stomp the Yard), The Inheritance delivers powerful performances, stunning imagery and heart-stopping twists that will leave audiences on the edge of their seats.
For cousins Karen (Brooks), Henry (Woodside), Tyrone (Henson), Lily (Rochelle Aytes, Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Family Reunion) and Simpson (Shawn Michael Howard, Cable Guy), the truth about their ancestral fortune has been buried for centuries, dating back to the time of slavery. Now, an invitation from the family’s commanding and enigmatic patriarch (David), along with a series of supernatural events and mysterious disappearances at a long-awaited family reunion, forces this once tight-knit family to discover how far they’re willing to go to obtain their precious inheritance. When Aunt Felicia (Adriane Lenox, The Blind Side) arrives in the middle of the night to deliver urgent news about the clan’s ties to the occult and the ominous events that lie ahead, Karen and her cousins must accept the truth of their destiny and either choose the sacrifices that must be made, or to turn their back on disturbing centuries-old customs and the wealth and privilege that come with them.
Winner of the Grand Jury Prize for Best Actor at the American Black Film Festival, The Inheritance was an Official Selection of the Urbanworld Film Festival, Pan African Film Festival, International Black Film Festival and the Twin Cities Black International Film Festival.
