The Curse of Sleeping Beauty

XLrator Media has long been a friend to fans of horror films, and now they’re branching out and taking over the small screen as well with XLrator TV! One of their first projects is a series based on Pearry Teo’s The Curse of Sleeping Beauty, and we have all your early details right here.

From the Press Release:
Following the October 20th premiere of its first TV series, “Superstition,” on SYFY (Netflix worldwide), XLrator Media has announced the launch of its new television division XLrator TV. The company will work directly with networks, co-production, and distribution partners to package, develop, and produce scripted, reality, and other non-fiction programming for the global television and SVOD marketplace.

To launch the division, the company is expanding its relationship with two of its most creative co-production partners, Rugged Entertainment and Bleiberg Entertainment. The company has worked with Rugged Entertainment on several critically-acclaimed documentary features including The Legend of 420, Who the F**k Is That Guy?, and Queen Mimi. Over the years, Bleiberg Entertainment and XLrator Media have collaborated together on many elevated genre films including the recent Savage Dog, Close Range, and cult hit The Curse of Sleeping Beauty, which the companies are developing into a thrilling new scripted series.

”On the heels of our first global genre series ‘Superstition,’ we are excited to embark on this new chapter at the company with the creation of this new premium TV content division,” said XLrator Media CEO Barry Gordon.

“THE CURSE OF SLEEPING BEAUTY” is a co-production of XLrator TV and Bleiberg Entertainment. Based on the 2016 cult hit fantasy-thriller The Curse of Sleeping Beauty and a spin-off comic book series by renowned illustrator Everette Hartsoe (Razor), the new TV series will be created and executive produced by Pearry Teo, Ehud Bleiberg, and Barry Gordon. The series is an entirely new, dark modern-day interpretation of the Brothers Grimm classic and will follow Thomas Kaiser, a young man who inherits an ancestral mansion that has been in his family for generations — only to learn that he has also inherited an ancient curse stemming back to the Crusades. Forced into his new role as “protector” — the guardian appointed to keep the evil demons in the house at bay — Thomas must unravel the mystery of the house, while struggling to awaken the beautiful Briar Rose, held captive in a terrifying netherworld.

It’s fucking Chucky…

Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One kind of came and went this past summer and I never got the chance to check it out in theaters. I fully planned to – if even just to see Chucky share the screen with Christine and Freddy – but alas, I was just too busy (?) to head to the multiplex.

But if you’re like me and missed the film in theaters, then you’ll be happy to hear that today we have word that the film will be hitting 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray, and DVD on July 24.  And for those of you who just can’t wait, the film will be hitting Digital July 3.

Miller, Lena Waithe, Philip Zhao, Win Morisaki, Hannah John-Kamen, and Mark Rylance. It was produced by Spielberg Donald De Line, Kristie Macosko Krieger, and Dan Farah.

In the year 2045, the real world is a harsh place. The only time Wade Watts (Tye Sheridan) truly feels alive is when he escapes to the OASIS, an immersive virtual universe where most of humanity spend their days. In the OASIS, you can go anywhere, do anything, be anyone—the only limits are your own imagination. The OASIS was created by the brilliant and eccentric James Halliday (Mark Rylance), who left his immense fortune and total control of the OASIS to the winner of a three-part contest he designed to find a worthy heir. When Wade conquers the first challenge of the reality-bending treasure hunt, he and his friends—known as the High Five—are hurled into a fantastical universe of discovery and danger to save the OASIS and their world.
