Vengeance is hell...
...KHC has received a batch of exclusive new photos from Gravitas Ventures and director Jourdan McClure's Shepard. In them, we see star Kurt Krause going through all sorts of punishment and maybe regretting meeting his new "friend" Shepard (Will Beinbrink).
At the behest of his social worker, bullied 17-year-old Ray moves in with his Aunt and cousin Kim for his latest shot at a normal life. But for Ray, every new home placement is the same; getting tormented for being the weird, new kid. The one bright spot in this new town is his biology teacher, Mr. Dwyer, who encourages Ray to look to the future. Unfortunately, Kim’s boyfriend Eric views Ray as an ever-increasing rival for Kim’s attention and frames him for stealing booze from a liquor store. Just as Ray is about to be beaten by a baseball bat-wielding store clerk, a stranger cold-cocks the clerk. Ray is thunderstruck. This stranger is just the kind of guy Ray wishes he could be; a man of action with no regrets. And this dangerous, mysterious man, Shepard, sees something in Ray. He sympathizes with the struggles and pain Ray has experienced. An odd friendship forms, but Shepard is leading Ray down a violent path of vengeance from which there can be no return.
The film also stars Greg Proops (Whose Line is it Anyway?), Kareem Grimes (All American), Paulina Alvarez (Party of Five) and Ashley Nicole Williams (Motherland: Fort Salem).
Check out the photos below, and catch Shepard when it arrives on VOD on March 10, 2020 from Gravitas Ventures.
