OTIS is a story of suburban America gone haywire.In the midst of a serial abductor/killer's rampage, a beautiful young teen, Riley Lawson (Ashley Johnson), goes missing. When her desperate parents, Will and Kate (Daniel Stern and Illeana Douglas), are contacted by her kidnapper, an insufferable FBI Special Agent (Jere Burns) takes charge of the case.But, from deep within the psychopathic subterranean world created by Otis (Bostin Christopher), Riley turns the tables on her tormentor, manages to escape and to contact her parents.And, fed up with the tragi-comic inability of the FBI to find their girl, Will, Kate, and Riley's brother, Reed (Jared Kusnitz) decide to take matters - and justice - into their own hands.But when Otis's brother, Elmo (Kevin Pollack), shows up unexpectedly, the Lawsons find themselves mired in one of the more unusual and macabre consequences of vigilantism.Such is the premise of OTIS, a bold satire of the teenager-in-peril- grindhouse horror genre, and the fourth film of the successful Raw Feed series of DTV movies for Warner Home Video.Far from proclaiming 'Mission Accomplished,' the backed-in-a-corner Lawsons will further complicate their already deadly predicament with a surprising, unfortunate and frankly hilarious final choice.In the black-comedy/absurdist tradition of Blood Simple, Fargo and A Simple Plan, OTIS represents a new and satirical twist on suburban horror, family values and the chaotic consequences of American homemade justice.
