‘MINE 9’ Debuts On Netflix

CLAUSTROPHOBIC THRILLER ‘MINE 9’ DEBUTS ON NETFLIX IN APRIL AS ENTIRE COUNTRY HUNKERS DOWN TO FIGHT COVID-19

 

“AN IMMERSIVE NAILBITER!” – SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS
“ONE OF THE BEST THRILLERS OF 2019!” – UNSEEN FILMS
“BEST FEATURE FILM-DRAMA AWARD WINNER” – CINEQUEST

Claustrophobic survival thriller MINE 9, one of the best-reviewed independent films of the past year is available to NETFLIX subscribers in this U.S.A. and around the world beginning April 6th.

The heart-stopping story of tragedy, terror, and survival follows nine Appalachian coal miners trapped two miles underground after a methane explosion. With only an hour’s supply of oxygen, the race is on to escape alive.

One of the film’s stars Kevin Sizemore (Woodlawn, Chicago Fire, Fear The Walking Dead, Timeless) plays Daniel, a blue-collar coal miner much like the ones he grew up around in his hometown of Princeton West Virginia. Sizemore says, “It’s appropriate that MINE 9 is being released on NETFLIX now when most Americans are sheltered-at-home and more cognizant than ever about the dangerous sacrifices essential workers are making for the rest of us”.

In times like we’re all living through now, we see just how important our grocery store and restaurant workers, truck drivers, medical and emergency services personnel are to the fabric of this country. Back in Appalachia where I grew up, coal mining towns are filled with brave men and women just like that who risk their lives every day just to put food on their families’ tables, because those are the only decent jobs to be had. Everyone knows the risk, everyone knows the danger, and everyone hopes their loved ones come home alive.”

MINE 9 cast member Clint James, who is currently sheltered-in-place in New York, the U.S. city hit hardest by the pandemic, agrees. James, who plays John, a rugged miner with a checkered past in MINE 9, says “Coal mining is a dangerous business and I’ve learned to appreciate the folks that still do that job and others like it. I’m hoping folks will stay home, stay safe and Netflix-and-chill with MINE 9; it will give you an up-close look at just how real and dangerous it can be when safety concerns are ignored, and warnings fall on deaf ears. I’d say it’s pretty damn appropriate for what we’re going through right now.”

The award-winning movie from director/producer Eddie Mensore received excellent reviews from Variety, the Los Angeles Times, RogerEbert.com, the New Orleans Times-Picayune, the National Post, the San Jose Mercury News, RottenTomatoes.com and many others.  

MINE 9 is also available on DVD and Blu-ray at Walmart.com, Target.com, and Amazon.com and many other leading digital platforms including Amazon, InDemand, iTunes, GooglePlay and more. It was released by 123 Go Films and distributed by Alliance/Distribution Solutions.
