Lynch's daughter Jennifer directed it and co-wrote it with Kent Harper. She previously wrote and directed the cult classic film "Boxing Helena."
David Lynch's body of work includes the movies "Eraserhead," "Blue Velvet," "Wild at Heart, "Lost Highway" and "Mulholland Drive," as well as the quirky TV series "Twin Peaks."
Starring Bill Pullman and Julia Ormond as federal officers attempting to solve a series of vicious slayings, "Surveillance" is to premiere on HDNet June 24, ahead of its planned June 26 limited U.S. theatrical release.
Richard Corliss of TIME described the film by saying: "Think 'Rashomon' meets 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre' in 'Twin Peaks' ... and you may get on the warped wavelength of this semi-comic parable of social anarchy."
