Production on 'Splinter' begins in April on location in Manitoba, Canada. Cinetic is repping U.S. rights and have arranged financing for the project.

B-D have provided a nice long synopsis to peruse...

Travis Valley is a pretty normal, old-fashioned American town. With a proud history, a thriving local community and an extraordinarily low crime rate, it’s the perfect place to make a home. Enjoy the fresh clear waters of Silver Bay. Celebrate the town’s primary industry at the annual Loggers Festival. And, every fifth September, seek bloody revenge on whomever you choose...

Every five years, on September 1st, Travis Valley celebrates the Festival of Release, an ancient local tradition during which all laws are suspended for 24 hours, and chaos and anarchy rule. Some families barricade themselves in their houses and stay out of harm’s way as best they can. Others take the opportunity to settle any long standing feuds that may have stretched back for many Release Days past.

The Brayling family have always taken every precaution necessary to steer clear of the bloodletting and the vengefulness, and have always been happier to ‘love-thy-neighbour’ rather than to slaughter them. As with every Release, their initial plan is to barricade their home, sit tight and survive the full 24 hours of mayhem. But this year, Marshall gets caught up in his buddies’ scheme to rid the town of its unwanted tourists; his sister Lori becomes the victim her best friend’s jealousy; their father Chris attempts an audacious plan to equip the family with the home of their dreams; and their mother Adele’s shoe fetish may yet be the death of them. And, all the while, the remaining 2,496 inhabitants of Travis Valley focus on murderous rampages of their own…

Combining the fear and dread of 28 DAYS LATER with the anarchical comedy in the vein of FARGO and EVIL DEAD trilogy, RELEASE is an original and hilariously brutal satire, and a gloriously twisted evocation of the American dream…
