Fear and Paranoia Are Just the Beginning in "The Insomniac" Starring Danny Trejo, Clare Grant & John Heard

On January 21, Grand Entertainment Releases the Psychological Thriller From Eddy Salazar on DVD

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/15/14 -- Hot off its nationwide theatrical run, Grand Entertainment Group (GEG), an independent multi-platform content and distribution company, will release the much anticipated indie thriller "The Insomniac" on DVD January 21. Winner of Best Screenplay at Breckenridge Festival of Film and Action on Film, and Official Selection at both Fort Lauderdale and Dances with Films, "The Insomniac" is directed by Monty Miranda, stars Eddy Salazar (Mansion of Blood); Clare Grant (Black Snake Moan); John Heard (Assault on Wall Street); Keith Szarabajka (Argo); Alimi Ballard (Fast Five); Romina (Stealing Roses); Brett DelBuono (The Cleaner); Steve Agee (The Sarah Silverman Project), and Danny Trejo (Machete).

Only in Hollywood would a real-life nightmare turn into an acclaimed independent film. After experiencing traumatic events in his own life, a home invasion and the tragic loss of both his parents, actor and author Eddy Salazar was inspired to write the psychological thriller "The Insomniac."

The film taps into the psychological torment of John Figg (Eddy Salazar), after someone breaks into his home and takes all of his material and sentimental possessions. This turn of events drives him to a place of desperation and he develops a severe case of insomnia. Blinded by the insomnia-induced madness, he learns that the people around him are not as trustworthy as they appear to be. From that incident on, his life follows only one theme: "When you don't know who to trust, sleep with both eyes open.

The DVD will include bonus features and will be available at most major retailers and Amazon.com for $19.98 MSRP.
