Considered a modern classic in the making. The Bench is tense and emotional horror in the style of the slasher movies of the 70's and 80's with a modern twist and an eclectic young cast of Scottish talent, yet to be discovered. Check out the trailer for “The Bench”.
The story goes that there is a room, in the middle of the woods and if you enter it - you will never come out!
There is a legend, of a boy called Chester Oakes. Chester lived with his Father in a cabin in the woods. His Mother died during childbirth. His Father would hunt and trap animals and cut them up to sell the meat at the market in town.
One day Chester's Father never returned from hunting and when Chester found him, he was caught in his own trap. Well Chester had never been right, he did the only thing he knew to do with an injured animal...he cut his Father up - in the basement - on The Bench.
He was never seen again and now six kids are staying at that cabin for the weekend and they just found the room and it's only a matter of time before Chester comes home and one by one they have to face THE BENCH.
