Perhaps the most terrifying human relationship is the one between a serial killer and his target. But what if it starts that way, and becomes something...more? From the visionary mind of director Jennifer Lynch (Boxing Helena, Surveillance, Hisss) comes the dark fable CHAINED. With a stellar cast including Vincent Dâ€™Onofrio (Full Metal Jacket, â€śLaw and Order: Criminal Intentâ€ť), Gina Phillips (Jeepers Creepers, â€śAlly McBealâ€ť) Conor Leslie (â€ś90210â€ť), Evan Bird (â€śThe Killingâ€ť), with Jake Weber (Dawn of the Dead, â€śMediumâ€ť) and Julia Ormond (My Week With Marilyn, â€śMad Menâ€ť), CHAINED is an unforgettable ride into the darkness that can reside in the human heart â€“ no matter what your age.
Coming home from a routine trip to the movies, eight-year-old Tim (Bird) and his mother, Sarah (Ormond) are picked up by a psychopathic cab driver named Bob (Dâ€™Onofrio). It ends up being their last ride together. Bob murders the young boyâ€™s mother and keeps Tim as his unwilling protĂ©gĂ©e, making him clean up the mess following each murder he commits. After a couple of aborted escape attempts, Bob chains Tim â€“ now renamed Rabbit -- allowing just enough length to move freely within the house. As the years pass, Bob starts instructing Rabbit, teaching him anatomy and human behavior. Now a teenager, Rabbit (Eamon Farren, X: Night of Vengeance) is slowly being pressed by Bob to start his own homicidal spree. Slowly but surely, he must soon choose whether to follow in Bobâ€™s serial killer footsteps or make one final, desperate attempt to break free...
