New York City Horror Film Festival  announces the film as their Opening Night feature presentation.

(New York, NY) — October 18th, 2017. The New York City Horror Film Festival is excited to announce the distinguished presence of writer-director Lou Simon and actress Aniela McGuinness of the revenge thriller “3” at their Opening Night screening on October 26th. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A with the cast and crew. The film is represented internationally by sales agent Crogan Filmworks from Georgia. They will be attending the American Film Market (AFM).

“3” tells the visceral and highly emotional story of a man and a woman who kidnap her rapist in order to extract a confession from him. Locked up in the basement of a remote home, the offender is unwilling to admit his act on camera and relentlessly asserts his innocence. With time running out before the police show up, how far is the duo willing to go for justice and what if they are wrong?

“‘3’ is something completely different from anything I’ve done — a psychological horror that hopefully tests the audience’s values between right and wrong and keeps them guessing for what truly happened,” says director Lou Simon.
