Shout! Factory to Unleash Kevin Greutert’s Jackals

Published

Jackals

We’ve been talking about the latest film from Saw VI and Saw 3D: The Final Chapter director, Kevin Greutert, titled Jackals, for a while now; and word has come that the flick has landed distribution!
From the Press Release:
As announced at Cannes, Shout! Factory, a multi-platform media company, has acquired North American distribution rights to psychological thriller JACKALS, directed by Kevin Greutert (Jessabelle, Visions) and written by Jared Rivet. Produced by Tommy Alastra (Sunset Strip), JACKALS stars Deborah Kara Unger (Crash, Silent Hill), Stephen Dorff (Blade, Leatherface), Johnathan Schaech (That Thing You Do!, Arsenal), Nick Roux (Jane by Design), Chelsea Ricketts (Scream Queens, True Blood) and Ben Sullivan (Hell on Wheels, Stonewall). The announcement was made today by Shout Factory’s founders Richard Foos, Bob Emmer and Garson Foos, Shout’s Vice President of Acquisitions Jordan Fields and filmmakers Kevin Greutert and Tommy Alastra.

Shout! Factory has secured all North American distribution rights to JACKALS, including theatrical, video on-demand, digital, broadcast and home entertainment for cross-platform releases in U.S. and Canada. Shout’s Scream Factory™ Films plans a strategic rollout of this movie across multiple entertainment platforms, beginning with a theatrical launch this fall 2017.

“Jackals is terrifying, full stop. It’s a potent cocktail of horror, thriller and siege, and somehow it leaves you both drained and adrenalized. We’re eager to share that experience with North American movie audiences,” said Jordan Fields, Vice President of Acquisitions at Shout! Factory.

“Jackals is an intense, terrifying story about familial bonds and the dangers of radicalization that taps into many of the issues and fears we as a society face today,” said Tommy Alastra, film producer and founder of TAP INC. “I’m very excited for this partnership with Shout! Factory and their subsidiary Scream Factory. As one of the preeminent forces in genre entertainment today, I believe they are the perfect fit to bring Jackals to audiences around the globe.”

The film deal was negotiated by Dave McIntosh and Vanessa Flanders for Shout! Factory, and Elsa Ramo of Ramo Law for TAP INC.

Synopsis:
From director Kevin Greutert comes a disturbing vision of a fractured family that will do anything to get their estranged son back from a murderous cult, but find themselves under siege when the cultists surround their cabin. A vicious battle unfolds, testing familial loyalties and unleashing a bloodbath in which there are few survivors.

Must-See: Jurassic Park meets The Walking Dead in The Jurassic Dead Trailer

Published

on

“Evil Always Finds a Way…”

I think I have a new must-see movie.

It’s called The Jurassic Dead and is it, duh, part Jurassic Park and part “The Walking Dead” in that it features a T-Rex that turns those it attacks into zombies!

Talk about a winning premise. Personally, I’d love to see more quality filmmakers take on films like this. After all, it was a f*cking blast to see Mike Mendez’s Big-Ass Spider.

Anyhow, today we have The Jurassic Dead‘s first trailer and poster for, not only your own viewing pleasure, but I’m sure the viewing pleasure of all your unsuspecting friends/family members on social media.

You can check out the glorious poster to the right and the silly-ass trailer below. Like ’em, love ’em, share ’em, and then let us know what you think!

The film is directed by Milko Davis and Thomas Martwick from a script by Producer Michelle Pacitto and stars American professional bodybuilder/Producer Andy Haman, Cooper Elliott, Shale Le Page, Ruselis Perry, Mia Klosterman, and Nicole Goeke.

Wild Eye Releasing will release The Jurassic Dead in the U.S Summer 2018.

Synopsis:

A unit of mercenaries must team up with a group of tech-geek students after American is struck with an EMP attack. Deep in the desert, they find the source of the terror, a mad scientist who has also just created a living dead T-Rex dinosaur, one who turns everyone it attacks into a zombie. Now they must scramble to stay alive and save the planet from the ultimate undead predator.

I’ve been digging all of the fun trailers we’ve seen for the third season, but I have to say this one is my favorite thus far. Love the music and the yellow-ass font.

You can check out the bitchin’ retro-sitcom trailer below and then let us know what you think of Ash: The Sitcom!

The third season stars Bruce Campbell, Ray Santiago, Dana DeLorenzo, Lucy Lawless and Arielle Carver-O’Neill. Campbell executive produces the series with Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert, Ivan Raimi, and Rick Jacobson. Season 3 has new showrunners: Mark Verheiden and producer Moira Grant.

S3 synopsis:

The third season finds Ash’s status in Elk Grove, Michigan has changed from murderous urban legend to humanity-saving hometown hero. When Kelly witnesses a televised massacre with Ruby’s fingerprints all over it, she returns with a new friend to warn Ash and Pablo that evil isn’t done with them yet. Blood is thicker than water in the battle of good vs Evil Dead!
