More distribution news has come our way as Eron Sheean’s indie thriller Errors Of The Human Body has found itself a home Stateside. Read on for all the latest details right here free of any nasty anatomical anomalies.

From the Press Release
IFC Midnight announced today that the company is acquiring all North American rights to Eron Sheean’s thriller ERRORS OF THE HUMAN BODY. Sheean wrote the screenplay for the film with Shane Danielsen. The picture stars Germany’s Karoline Herfurth (PERFUME: THE STORY OF A MURDERER, THE READER, WE ARE THE NIGHT), Iceland’s Tómas Lemarquis (NOI THE ALBINO, PAINLESS, SNOW PIERCER), Rik Mayall (THE YOUNG ONES) and Canada’s rising star, Michael Eklund (THE DIVIDE, THE DAY, FRINGE, ALCATRAZ) and wasproduced by Instinctive Film’s Darryn Welch and Cole Payne. The film played this summer at several international film festivals, including Fantasia Film Festival in Montreal, Melbourne International Film Festival, Frightfest London and Transatlantyk International Film & Music Festival and will play at the upcoming Fantastic Fest and Rio de Janeiro International Film Festival. ERRORS OF THE HUMAN BODY will make its US premiere next week at Fantastic Fest 2012.

Following divorce from his wife and the loss of his son to a rare genetic mutation, Canadian geneticist Geoff Burton (Elkund) relocates to the harsh,wintry scenery of Dresden, Germany to work on groundbreaking new project that might just be his key to redemption in ERRORS OF THE HUMAN BODY. When teamed up with his former intern and colleague Rebekka (Herfurth), he starts working on a human regenerative gene with direct ties to his personal tragedy, yet matters prove increasingly difficult: jealous co-workers’ feelings are ruffled, old flames are rekindled and personal demons become consistently harder to suppress in this new and oppressive work environment. Still haunted by the memory of his wife and his failures to have saved his deceased son, Burton finds himself maddeningly close to a medical breakthrough, yet quickly spiralling out of control. Collapsing his career and personal life into a dark and increasingly dangerous tunnel-vision of competitive genetics, delusions of all kinds and the terrifying potential of massive discoveries gone awry, Burton is quite literally the stranger in the strange land. The question remains: how far will Burton be willing to go to atone for the errors of his past?

The deal for the film was negotiated by Jeff Deutchman, Director of Acquisitions & Productions for Sundance Selects/IFC Films with Nate Bolotin at XYZFilms on behalf of the filmmakers.

Rest in Peace: Dolores O’Riordan

Published

on

Sad and shocking news has come in from the music world as Dolores O’Riordan, lead singer of The Cranberries, has been found dead at the all too young age of just 46.

According to the Associated Press, the singer’s publicist, Lindsey Holmes, confirmed she died in London, where she was recording. “No further details are available at this time,” Holmes said, adding that the singer’s family was “devastated” by the news.

London’s Metropolitan Police were summoned to a hotel just after 9:00 AM today. As of now her death is classified as “unexplained.”

During her career, O’Riordan provided music for the short film Z, Birdemic: Shock and Terror, Evilenko, and many more films and television projects. We here at Dread Central would like to take this time to extend our sincerest of condolences to Dolores’ family members, friends, and constituents.

If you, if you could return. Don’t let it burn. Don’t let it fade.
