Image Entertainment Snags Finale and Shadow
Two more horror flicks have found themselves some North American distro today courtesy of Image Entertainment, one of which is said to be "Argento-esque" in nature. That's never a bad thing!
Variety reports that Image has acquired all North American rights to Jinga Films' supernatural horror Finale. Described as an homage to Dario Argento's Suspiria, John Michael Elfers' debut feature stars Carolyn Von Hauck as a grieving mother who discovers that her deceased son had been dabbling in black magic.
Also acquired was Federico Zampaglione's psychological horror flick Shadow, which centers on an American Iraq War vet whose romantic vacation in the Italian Alps turns into a Deliverance-style nightmare after a confrontation with local hunters.
Check out the official synopses for each below.
"A family descends into a vortex of denial and paranoia after the death of their oldest son. Though labeled a suicide, the bizarre circumstances lead his mother, Helen, to believe there are darker forces at work. Black paint was thrown over every mirror in his house, an explosive trap set in his bedroom, and a woman from his past haunts the cemetery where he lies buried. But when Helen's investigation threatens to ruin the life of her daughter and possibly her own sanity, she realizes there is but one escape from this nightmare world - the very route attempted by her dead son."
"A soldier returning from a tour of duty in Iraq goes on a mountain bike adventure in the Alps to forget his battle-weary past. In the woods he meets a pretty young stranger who tells him about a local myth concerning a Nazi experiment camp. After a confrontation with hunters the couple take refuge in an abandoned bunker, where the soldier is forced to endure a more shattering nightmare than the fears he experienced in Iraq."
