I knew Julian Richards (The Last Horror Movie) was expanding his talents outside of the directing arena, but I had no idea his Jinga Films was out trolling for new movies. Today’s announcement of their acquisition of worldwide rights for Gary (Dead & Buried) Sherman’s latest horror show, 39: Epitaph for a Serial Killer (originally titled 39: A Film by Carroll McKane), has made it clear that they know the good stuff when they see it.
Jinga will be screening the film in Berlin, followed by a showing at Cannes and AFM in pursuit of distribution worldwide. “39 is everything a good indie horror should be,” said Jinga founder Julian Richards in a press release, “intelligent script and solid performances with atmospheric photography and design.”
39: Epitaph for a Serial Killer had its premier at last summer’s Fantasia Film Festival, where it was well received by the discerning crowd. The film follows a serial killer named Carroll McKane, who has recorded the deaths of all 36 of his victims. Two more victims are lined up, and his biographer, a psychiatrist, is ordered to make the 39th kill. Head games galore ensure.
