Synopsis: Based on the Alterna Comics graphic novel of the same name, THE CHAIR follows the story of Richard Sullivan, an innocent man struggling to escape execution on death row. Witnessing the savage killings of his fellow inmates at the hand of the prison’s sadistic and psychotic Warden, Sullivan decides that the only way to survive is to fight back. But as he matches the brutality occurring in the prison, Sullivan is forced to come face to face with his sanity and his own horrifying past. “…a chilling experience inside death row, where murderers, rapists and pedophiles become victims.”- Barbara Torretti, DARKVEINS “…pulls no punches to bring to life a psychotic world.”- William Meeker, TFK’s WEB OF INDIE HORROR AND SCIENCE FICTION “Although there is torturing in it, there is more plot and other elements that dig much deeper, both into the story and characters than just trying to gross out your audience with sadistic torture scenes. …there’s more to it than that and that’s what separates this from most films of this type.” – Andrew Peters, KINKY HORROR GOON REVIEW



Alterna has also just announced special guests that will be at screenings across the United States:

The Chair was one of the late Roddy Pipper‘s last films, so if you’re a fan of his or horror movies in general support your local screening. Show Alterna Comics and the public in general that indie content is just as good if not better than the mainstream.

You only have a few days to get your tickets!
