Snow Shark: Ancient Snow Beast, the feature film debut of screenwriter, director, and actor Sam Qualiana, has been acquired for worldwide distribution by Independent Entertainment, part of the Alternative Cinema network. The deal includes DVD, VOD, cable, and digital downloads.

This is a real achievement for everyone involved with Snow Shark,” says Gregory Lamberson, one of the film’s producers. “As many filmmakers have come to realize, the market for independent genre films is brutal, and obtaining distribution can seem like an impossible goal. We’re thrilled to be working with Independent Entertainment and the wonderful people at Alternative Cinema. I know they’ll give this film the tender loving care it deserves.

Other Alternative Cinema brands include Shock-O-Rama Cinema, Seduction Cinema, and Camp Motion Pictures. The company offers Lamberson’s first three films, Slime City, Undying Love, and Naked Fear on the two-disc DVD Greg Lamberson’s Slime City Grindhouse Collection.

The plan is to release the film on DVD in the winter, which is appropriate for the subject matter,” says Lamberson. “This will give us the chance to screen at film festivals over the summer and fall. Sam and the cast did a great job, and this is a real audience picture; we’re going to build word of mouth ahead of the release.

Snow Shark: Ancient Snow Beast, just had its world premiere in Buffalo; it was filmed in neighboring Lockport, New York. Its next screening will be at the Bronx Week Film Festival on Saturday, May 12th, at 8:30 pm. The film’s other producers include Marc J. Makowski, John Maclay, Mike Gessel, Michael Faust, and Richard Chizmar of Cemetery Dance Publications. Brett Piper and Mark Polonia edited, Michael Girard Paul composed the score, and Arick Szymecki, John Renna, and Andrew Lavin created the special effects.

Snow Shark: Ancient Snow Beast is a creature feature which details the exploits of a prehistoric shark, freed by an earthquake, which lives in the snow and preys upon unsuspecting teenagers, strippers, and hunters. Sam Qualiana plays the lead, a survivor of an earlier attack. He is joined by Jackey Hall (Patient Zero), John Renna, Michael O’Hear (Slime City Massacre), and Kathy Thiel Murphy (Black Guy on a Rampage: Homicidal Vengeance). Qualiana’s father, CJ, plays the town sheriff, and the rest of his family helped out behind the scenes.

Synopsis:
After a scientist (Michael O’Hear) discovers the titular creature is feasting on the local residents of a small Western New York town, the mayor (Robert Bozek) hires cryptozoologists and a shark hunter (Andrew Elias, Kathy Murphy, Andy Taylor) to help the sheriff (C.J. Qualiana, the director’s father) track down the beast. At the same time a former snow shark attack survivor (director Qualiana) makes plans of his own to stop the creature. Jackey Hall (Chainsaw Cheerleaders) plays a woman who demands answers when her husband disappears.

Charles Manson. The name alone lives on in infamy even long after his physical remains lay rotting… and rightly so. A new docudrama entitled Charles Manson: The Final Words is on its way, and we have new details and behind-the-scenes imagery for you. Check it out!

The flick made its premiere on the REELZ Channel, and Breakthrough Entertainment has announced that they’ve acquired worldwide distribution rights to the project that features narration from Rob Zombie and is home to the final interview given by America’s most notorious and now deceased cult-leader and mass murderer, Charles Manson.

The opportunity that we have to offer this distinct and truly unique documentary to our international clients is beyond exciting for Breakthrough Entertainment,” said Craig McGillivray, Vice President, Distribution at Breakthrough Entertainment. “We are continuously focused on sourcing captivating new premium content that pushes the envelope and generates mass attention such as this amazing film from James Buddy Day and Pyramid Productions.

The two-hour film narrated by musician Zombie focuses on the so-called Manson family murders told from Manson’s perspective using never-before-seen case files, pictures, and exclusive interviews with Manson himself from inside California State Prison. The feature documentary reveals new details that unveil the true story and motives behind the grisly murder spree. The audio used in the doc contains the last recorded interviews with the infamous killer conducted by director and producer James Buddy Day.

It has been a truly distinct project for us and an experience that very few producers encounter. This film has the potential to captivate global audiences, and we are very excited to have Breakthrough Entertainment on board to share this one-of-a-kind documentary,” says James Buddy Day, Executive Producer at Pyramid Productions.
