You may have thought we were done for the day with distro news, but one more announcement just slipped in under the wire. Grindstone/Lionsgate Home Entertainment have acquired North American rights to Dark Feed, and Recreation Media has taken on international rights for the film, which is currently screening at AFM.

From the Press Release:
Grindstone Entertainment Group has acquired North American rights, and Recreation Media has acquired international rights to writer/directors Michael Rasmussen and Shawn Rasmussen’s anticipated directorial debut, the horror film DARK FEED. Lionsgate Home Entertainment will distribute in North America. The deals with Grindstone and Recreation were negotiated by Ronna Wallace from Eastgate Pictures. The Rasmussen brothers produced the film along with Glenn Cooper, Roger Danchik and Jon Huberman.

In DARK FEED, a group of young professionals are terrorized while working in an abandoned psychiatric hospital when it appears that insanity is spreading among them like a virus. The Rasmussen brothers have developed a horror fan base since they wrote the screenplay to the 2010 asylum thriller John Carpenter’s The Ward.

Grindstone Entertainment partner Stan Wertlieb commented, “Michael and Shawn Rasmussen are a fresh new talent pool. They know how to scare even the most jaded horror fan! Keep an eye on them.”

Recreation President and CEO Ariel Veneziano, said, “DARK FEED fits right into our strategy of consistently bringing exceptional genre films to the international marketplace.”

“It’s extremely exciting for us to be working with Grindstone and Lionsgate,” said the directors, Michael and Shawn Rasmussen. “Many of the films that have inspired us over the years have come from them. It is an honor to have DARK FEED included in such a library of great horror films.”

Wertlieb and Grindstone’s Christy Cannon negotiated on behalf of Grindstone. Legal negotiations and services for Eastgate were provided by Shelley Surpin of Surpin & Mayersohn, LLP.

DARK FEED was shot in and around Boston, using some of the same buildings featured in Shutter Island. Roger Danchik (Art Director on Session 9) did the production design for the movie, and the film’s haunting original score was created by award winning composer John Kusiak, who scored Errol Morris’s recent film Tabloid.

Synopsis
When a film crew moves into an abandoned psychiatric hospital with a shadowy past to shoot a low budget horror film, they get more than they bargained for. The late nights and lack of sleep begin to take a toll, and the longer this crew works, the more the leaky, wet building seems to be coming back to life, feeding off its new inhabitants.

Netflix’s The Cloverfield Paradox Scored 2.8 Million Viewers in First Three Days

Published

on

A few weeks back we brought you a news story in which Netflix shelled out a whopping $50 million for the streaming rights to The Cloverfield Paradox.

If you are like me, then you’ve been wondering how that investment is paying out for the streaming giant in the wake of the resounding “thud” the film made after it hit late on Super Bowl Sunday.

Well, it seems the movie did pretty good… but nothing special (which is the general consensus to the film itself) and scored 2.8 million viewers in the first 3 days of release.

These numbers come to us from Variety, who reports that, while 2.8 million is no small number, when compared to the 11 million viewers that David Ayers’ Bright starring Will Smith pulled in late last year, The Cloverfield Paradox pales in comparison. But is it fair to compare The Cloverfield Paradox to Bright? Shrugs.

What do you think? Let us know below!

The film is directed by Julius Onah from a screenplay by Oren Uziel and Doug Jung and stars David Oyelowo, Ziyi Zhang, Elizabeth Debicki, Daniel Brühl, and Chris O’Dowd.

The film is now streaming on Netflix.

Synopsis:

Astronauts must fight for their lives after making a terrifying discovery in outer space.

Toy Fair 2018: Funko’s Savage World Turns Horror Icons Into Masters of the Universe Characters

Published

on

Overview

What would happen if classic horror icons existed within the world of the Masters of the Universe franchise? That’s a question Funko have answered with their new ‘Savage World’ line of action figures, which depicts horror characters including Leatherface, Michael Myers, Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, and Pinhead as they would look had they been birthed into the world of Castle Grayskull alongside He-Man and Skeletor. Funko have given us some pretty weird shit over the years, but this is on a whole other level.

Thanks to Bloody Disgusting, Preternia, Popvinyls.com, and the Twitter account @FakeEyes22, we are able to share some images of these testosterone-fueled slasher figures, which were on display at the New York Toy Fair. There’s currently no word on when these musclebound monstrosities will be hitting stores, but I’m willing to bet that one look at the gallery below will instantly have you counting your change.

Death Confirmed to Be Part of Bill & Ted 3

Published

on

Ingmar Bergman’s The Seventh Seal introduced the world to a version of death that has since become iconic. A dark force, the Grim Reaper is willing to give people a chance to reclaim their souls should they best it in a game. While this incarnation is truly magnificent, I believe that many people will recognize the parody version that William Sadler brought to life in Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, the 1991 sequel that saw Alex Winter and Keanu Reeves’ characters die and face the awkward spirit.

Nearly three decades later, fans of the Bill & Ted series are awaiting a third film, which has been known to be in the works for quite a while. Dubbed Bill & Ted Face the Music, it’s been written by Ed Solomon (Men in Black), who recently took to Twitter to confirm that the scythe-wielding ghoul is in the film and that he hopes William Sadler reprises the role! Solomon is also the man responsible for writing the first two films as well as the animated series “Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventures” and the 1991 video game Bill & Ted’s Excellent Video Game Adventure.

At this point, it’s all just speculation as to if a third film will ever be made. However, nearly every single party involved is ready to make this a reality, so all it needs is a studio to pony up the money!
