Rooftop Films and Gov­er­nors Island Arts present the New York pre­mière of In A Vio­lent Nature (US, Cana­da | 2024), direct­ed by Chris Nash. Part of Gov­er­nors Island ArtsTHIRD Sat­ur­days.

When a lock­et is removed from a col­lapsed fire tow­er in the woods that entombs the rot­ting corpse of John­ny, a venge­ful spir­it spurred on by a hor­rif­ic 60-year-old crime, his body is res­ur­rect­ed and he becomes hell­bent on retriev­ing it. The undead golem hones in on the group of vaca­tion­ing teens respon­si­ble for the theft and pro­ceeds to method­i­cal­ly slaugh­ter them one by one in his mis­sion to get it back — along with any­one in his way. Cour­tesy of IFC Films and Shud­der.
