Argentinian horror comedy Phase 7, or Fase 7 for you purists out there, generated quite a bit of buzz coming out of the recently concluded SXSW Film Festival, so much in fact that it’s just been picked up for North American distribution.
Per Variety L.A.-based The Collective/Salient Media has taken all North American rights to Nicolas Goldbart’s Phase 7, sold worldwide by Berlin-based M-Appeal. Phase 7 stars Daniel Hendler, Federico Luppi, Jazmin Stuart, and Jose “Yayo” Guridi.
Also written by Goldbart, Phase 7 will slot into the new U.S. genre distribution venture announced this month by AMC Theaters, The Collective, and horror website Bloody Disgusting.com. Their deal sees AMC cinemas screening one horror title a month, at least twice a week, in 32 major Stateside markets. Films will then be made available on VOD and also on DVD via Collective’s home video distribution partnership with Vivendi Universal.
Coco (Daniel Hendler) just moved to his new apartment with 7 months pregnant wife Pipi (Jazmin Stuart) when their building is quarantined due to the outbreak of a deadly flu. Soon the residents become unexpected enemies, and Coco is forced to join forces with his next-door neighbor, the loony but well prepared and stocked Horacio, to defend the contents of his fridge and keep his pregnant wife safe. Meanwhile, outside the quarantined building, the world as we knew it is disappearing. No wonder no one came when they dialed 833.
