SynopsisSam (Adam Taylor Gordon) is a young boy with big problems: He has bad dreams, he cuts himself, and he’s just been released from a mental hospital. But when he and his recovering alcoholic father (Brian Wimmer) are forced to stay on a ranch owned by the mysterious Ben Zachary (Lance Henriksen of ALIENS and NEAR DARK), Sam’s nightmares become all too real. On this placid land, the dead walk, evil is alive and a terrifying prophecy may unleash the final apocalypse. As the suffering of the innocent takes root, will the taste of temptation lead Sam to the most shocking act of all? Claudia Christian (BABYLON 5, THE HIDDEN) and Sean Young (BLADE RUNNER) co-star in this provocative horror thriller about the battle for the soul of mankind that begins – and ends – in THE GARDEN.
Sam has been having a tough time lately, his parents are divorced, he rarely sees his father, and for the past several months, he has been haunted by reoccurring nightmares involving gnarly old trees and serpents. In fact, Sam’s dreams have become so intense that he has taken to physically harming himself while caught in their grasp. In order to try and save their child, Sam’s parents have had him checked into a mental health clinic to undergo some concentrated psychiatric treatment. With some minor successes in the bag, Sam is released to his father and heads home to work out the rest of his difficulties. When an unexpected accident leaves the Father and Son with no means of transportation, they are taken in by Ben Zachary (Lance Henriksen), a craggy old man with a strange secret growing in his front yard. It seems that Ben Zachary’s land is the fabled Garden of Eden, and the fruit tree that shades his lawn is the Tree of Life. …Read More
