In Tyler Savage's INHERITANCE, More Money IS More Problems

Money can't buy happiness, right? That's the idiom. So it doesn't buy happiness, but what does it do? Tyler Savage is examining that premise in Inheritance, a new psychological thriller that is pretty much the summation of a question wrapped in enigma. The trailer for the upcoming flick presents a string of foreboding strangers and what appears to be the literal physical manifestation of a psyche crumbling. The film shows a lot of promise but what's a true spectacle is the amount of talent stacked behind the scenes. While it's Savage's directorial debut, based on a script of his own, Nicholas Gonda (Tree of Life) is producing with Drew Daniels as cinematographer (Krisha) and a roster of executive producers that have worked on films suchas It Comes At Night and Party Crashers. It's truly a full load of talent backing up a first feature length. Check out the full synopsis and trailer below and start to get excited.
