Fantasy Thriller ‘Shadowplay’ Coming to DVD and Digital Aug. 27 From Random Media

The fantasy mystery-thriller Shadowplay will come out on DVD, on demand and digital Aug. 27 from Random Media.

Starring Tony Eusoff, Juria Hartmans, Radhi Khalid and Stephen Rahman Hughes, it follows private eye Anton Shaw (Eusoff), who is hired to find a young woman Lamya (Hartmans) whose disappearance may be linked to a traumatic event in his own childhood. While investigating, his obsession with finding her awakens evil forces from his youth and he must overcome his own demons who have returned to prevent him from unlocking a dormant power to manifest his dreams into reality. As the truth of the case merges with the fiction of a 1980s game book Anton is reading, he’s drawn deeper into the story, unsure if he’s losing touch with the real world. In Anton’s search for answers, a mysterious man seems to either be guiding him, or luring him into a fatal trap but nonetheless is holding the key to Lamya’s disappearance.

As Anton gets closer to the truth, he finds Lamya’s diary, and discovers it is a magical tome that enables its owner to rewrite their life into whatever they wish it to be. Did Lamya vanish into a realm of her own creation or has Anton inadvertently re-imagined his own life through these pages? With everyone involved either gunning for his life or roping him into deadly situations, Anton is certain that wherever the labyrinthine path leads him, he will find Lamya — if he can stay alive long enough.

Filmed in Kuala Lumpur, Shadowplay is executive produced by Ken Petrie of 27 Ten Productions and directed by Tony Pietra Arjuna.
