Surreal horror-thriller Unconscious is set for an August 31 bow on DVD (Aug 24 on download) thanks to Kaleidoscope Home Entertainment.

Being released in the US under the title Amnesiac, the film stars Kate Bosworth and Wes Bentley as a couple brought together in mysterious, sinister circumstances.

Here’s the synopsis:

When a man (Wes Bentley) wakes up strapped to a bed and with no memory, he is greeted by a mysterious and sinister woman (Kate Bosworth) claiming to be his wife.

Venturing around the derelict household, he finds traces of blood, unexplained, unusual objects and grows increasingly suspicious and afraid of the mysterious woman.

Stumbling across the cold corpse of another man, bound and locked in the basement, he realises how deep and dangerous the web of lies and deceit go, but suddenly, all is black, and when he awakes again he is a prisoner, trapped and unable to move. It is only then that the electric shocks begin and the true nature of his wife is revealed…

Directed by Michael Polish, the film also stars the likes of Richard Riehle and Olivia Rose Keegan.
