Film Fervor: Episode 49 – Peter Simeti

Based on the Alterna Comics graphic novel by creator & writer Peter Simeti, penciler Kevin Christensen, and editor Erin Kohut – THE CHAIR follows the story of Richard Sullivan (to be played by Brian Thompson), an innocent man struggling to escape execution on death row. Witnessing the torture and murder of his fellow inmates at the hands of the prison’s sadistic and psychotic Warden (to be played by Bill Oberst Jr.), Sullivan decides that the only way to survive is to fight back. But as he matches the savagery and brutality occurring in the prison, Sullivan is forced to come face to face with his own sanity.

Many strong themes are prevalent in the film, including domestic violence, child abuse, mental health care, the criminal justice system, and capital punishment.

A battle of nature vs. nurture, THE CHAIR is a dark and gritty psychological horror film without monsters, zombies, or vampires – a film that shows the capacity for good and evil that exists within all of us.
