From Tim Sullivan, director of the cult horror-comedy '2001 Maniacs' comes Driftwood, released on DVD by Anchor Bay Entertainment on 26th January 2009, a contemporary ghost story-cum-murder mystery set in the stark confines of a young men's 'attitude adjustment facility'.

Starring former WCW and WWF champion wrestler Diamond Dallas Page, up and coming twentysomething pin-ups Ricky Ullman (Phil Of The Future; Prom Wars), Talan Torriero (Laguna Beach) and Connor Ross (Palo Alto), and David Eigenberg (Sex And The City), Lin Shaye (Snakes On A Plane) and Marc McClure (the Superman movie series), Driftwood sees Sullivan foregoing the horror-comedy route in favour of a far more serious take on the horror genre. Deeply affected by his involvement in the sudden death from a drug overdose of his elder rock star brother, 16-year-old David Forrester (Ullman) becomes withdrawn and obsessed by death.

Concerned by his behaviour, his misguided parents send him off to Driftwood, a prison-like attitude adjustment camp for troubled youths run by the sadistic and homophobic Captain Kennedy (Page). Naturally rebellious, David doesn't fit in too easily at the camp, a situation that is further exacerbated by his frequent run-ins with Kennedy and his brutal young henchman, Yates (Torriero).

Shortly after arriving at the facility, David becomes haunted by the presence of a ghostly figure, Jonathan, a former inmate of Driftwood who disappeared under mysterious circumstances. The guilt and trauma of his recent loss somehow helps David to connect with the spirit of Jonathan, a connection that compels him to discover the truth behind the boy's disappearance. David's investigations lead him to the uncovering of a murder mystery that, while putting his own life in danger, could also prove to be the only he will ever escape from Driftwood.

An unpredictable and atmospheric ghost story that recalls Guillermo del Toro's The Devil's Backbone, Driftwood also effectively communicates the real-life horrors of bullying, homophobia and exclusion experienced by many young people who have spent time in US juvenile detention centres.
