Stress Position (2013) - DVD And VOD Release Announced

“FASCINATING AND THRILLING... A NEARLY FLAWLESS DEBUT FEATURE” - Film Bizarro

"A DEEPLY DISTURBING FILM THAT SEEMS ALL TOO REAL.... TRULY PSYCHOLOGICALLY TERRIFYING” – Toronto Film Scene

“TWISTS AND TURNS THAT SURPRISE AND HORRIFY” - Examiner.com, Lindsay Waite

BrinkVision is set to release the award winning, critically acclaimed, psychological experiment thriller comedy Stress Position on VOD and limited edition DVD on August 26th. Stress Position is a genre-bending film about two close friends who make a bet to see which of them can withstand a week of psychological torture at the hands of the other. Director A.J. Bond and longtime collaborator and friend, David Amito designed personalized torture regimes aimed at breaking each other's will, but without causing any severe physical pain. Set entirely in and around an avant garde torture chamber custom built in an isolated warehouse, the film captures the surprising trajectory of the experiment from both sides of the cell as the two friends play both victim and oppressor, not to mention actor and director.

A Documentary? An Experiment? Torture Porn? What the F#*k is Stress Position?

Synopsis:

Inspired by a flippant remark about the treatment of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, filmmaker A.J. Bond made a bet with his close friend, actor David Amito, to see which of them could withstand a week of psychological torture at the hands of the other. What begins as a bizarre and darkly humorous experiment gradually spirals out of control, testing the limits of their friendship.
