Tribeca Enterprises today announced that Tribeca Film will expand to commercially release 26 films over the next year, more than double the number of titles released in 2010. The comprehensive distribution label for independent film also announced that it acquired U.S. rights to nine new titles to be released across multiple platforms, including three horror projects we know our readers will be interested in.
Following its launch in March 2010, Tribeca Film has grown to a year-round, full-service distribution label that delivers quality independent films to audiences through innovative strategies bolstered by its partnership with American Express. Tribeca Film’s significant expansion is highlighted by Tribeca’s continued relationship with Comcast, one of the nation’s leading providers of entertainment and supporter of independent film.
Tribeca Film plans to release the following titles theatrically, on video-on-demand and via other platforms throughout the coming year (details are provided below on the genre projects):
The Bleeding House. Written and directed by comic book writer and first-time filmmaker Philip Gelatt and starring Alexandra Chando, Patrick Breen, and Betsy Aidem, this taut horror thriller is an original take on the home invasion genre about a family with a haunted past visited by a sweet-talking Texan killer who has come for retribution.
Don’t Go In the Woods. Vincent D’Onofrio makes his feature-length directorial debut with this uproarious rock ‘n roll horror musical about the fate of a young band seeking a quiet place to write songs in the wrong neck of the woods. The film has screened at the Woodstock Film Festival, the Sarasota Film Festival and the Savannah Film Festival. Its stars include Bo Boddie, Eric Bogosian, Gwynn Galitzer, and Jorgen Jorgensen
Grave Encounters. Directed and written by first-time filmmakers The Vicious Brothers and starring Sean Rogerson, Juan Riedinger, Mackenzie Gray, and Ashleigh Gryzko, this cinéma-vérité style supernatural thriller follows a ghost-hunting reality television show host and crew as they shoot an episode inside an abandoned psychiatric hospital, where unexplained phenomena have been reported for years. All in the name of good television, they voluntarily lock themselves inside the building for the night and begin a paranormal investigation, capturing everything on camera. They quickly realize that the building is more than just haunted – it is alive – and it has no intention of ever letting them leave.
The remaining six features are Beware the Gonzo, Brother’s Justice, The High Cost of Living, NEDS, Ultrasuede: In Search of Halston, and Essential Killing. Visit the official Tribeca Film website for more details on all nine films.
