Los Angeles, CA (April 28, 2015) - Following its successful national multi-city theatrical run monterey media announces the May 19th Digital Download, DVD and VOD release of "The Living" starring: Fran Kranz (The Cabin in the Woods, Donnie Darko), Jocelin Donahue (Insidious: Chapter 2, and the upcoming Terrence Malick's Knight of Cups), Independent Spirit Award nominee Chris Mulkey (Captain Phillips, The Purge, Whiplash), Joelle Carter ("Justified", Jessabelle, American Pie 2) and Kenny Wormald (Footloose, Clerks II).

"A psychological thriller with all the right ingredients for riveting cinema!"
- Kam Williams, Baret News Syndicate

"3 Stars. Mulkey is chilling, first moment to last, in this brutal, blood-stained film noir. The moral subtext gives the film heft, the performances make it real and Mulkey makes The Living fear the man who doesn't fear death."
- Tribune News Service
