Oregon, 1978. Ben Adams and his wife Jules are in for a surprise when they inherit an abandoned coastal property that Ben’s recently deceased mother never mentioned. Untouched for forty years the house looms like an eerie relic over land which includes a stunning private cove and beach.
The beauty and tranquillity of the place leave the family with the nagging question: why was this property kept a secret for so long? While Jules rummages through the house looking for answers, Ben goes to repair the buried water tank, not knowing in doing so he is unleashing a long dormant creature, fiercely protective of its environment…
In the US, The Tank will be released by Well Go USA theatrically in select locations on April 21, 2023, and then On-Demand (VOD) on April 25, 2023.
