Amazon Studios' newest offering brings you to a dark New England town that revolves around fishing and secrets. 'Blow The Man Down', is a drama of sex and murder that takes place in Easter Cove, a village in Maine, and promises to be haunting enough to be plausible. The thriller debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival in 2019 and comes to Amazon Prime on March 20, 2020.

Mary Beth Conolly (Morgan Saylor) and Priscilla Connolly (Sophie Lowe) are on a mission to cover up a bloody encounter with a frigidly evil man. In their journey to conceal their criminal activities, they are forced to unearth the town's deep secrets. The trailer showcases the sisters trying to get rid of a body - a man that they had most likely murdered after having "lost control" with a murder weapon they don't seem to have a clear understanding of. From there on starts encounters and cover-ups that takes them through unwanted adventures with the town "embarrassment" Enid Nora Devlin played by Emmy Award-winning actress Margo Martindale.
