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.

Samuel L. Jackson Wraps on M. Night Shyamalan’s Glass

Published

on

That was fast. It was just two weeks ago that we shared your first on-set look at Samuel L. Jackson as Mr. Glass in M. Night Shyamalan’s upcoming Unbreakable/Split sequel, and today we have news that Jackson has wrapped his role.

The update comes to us directly from Shyamalan himself who took to Twitter to let us all know that not only has Sam Jackson wrapped his role in Glass, but there is only one week left of filming overall.

Here is his tweet:

Does this mean the crew has gathered up enough footage to give us all a teaser trailer in the near future? I would think so, so let’s not be too surprised if that’s just what we get before the end of the year.

Fingers crossed.

The film is written & directed by M. Night Shyamalan and stars Bruce Willis, James McAvoy, Anya-Taylor Joy, Sarah Paulson, Spencer Treat Clark, Charlayne Woodard, and Samuel L. Jackson as Mr. Glass.

Glass hits theaters January 18, 2019.

Synopsis:

Following the conclusion of Split, Glass finds Dunn pursuing Crumb’s superhuman figure of The Beast in a series of escalating encounters, while the shadowy presence of Price emerges as an orchestrator who holds secrets critical to both men.

Published

on

Here at Dread Central, we are always on the lookout to peep and share cool new horror shorts from around the web. Case in point, director Tony Morales’ Hada.

The short film was selected for 260 festivals and received 50 awards, and you can now check it out in its entirety below.

I watched it this past weekend and there were more than a few shots contained within that chilled my bones. All about those feet moving up onto the bed. Brr. That’s all I’ll say.

Actually, I’ll say a (tiny) bit more: Someone needs to give Morales a shot at one of the new Conjuring-universe films. I think he’d knock it out of the park.

Watch the flick and you’ll see what I mean.

Again, you can check out the short below and then after giving the film a viewing, make sure to hit us up and let us know what you think in the comments below!

You can become a fan of the short film on Facebook HERE.

Synopsis:

Tonight Hada comes to visit Daniel because his last child tooth has fallen out. What Daniel doesn´t expect is that his worst enemy is the light.

The last time we gave you guys word on the upcoming Halloween horror anthology 10/31 was to bring you the knock-out exclusive official poster, which you can peep to your left (click for a higher-res version).

The new horror anthology in the vein of V/H/S and Creepshow joins an ensemble cast together to spin twisted tales of the macabre. The film is executive produced by P.J. Starks, creator of the critically acclaimed Volumes of Blood.

The film’s stories are directed by the likes of Justin M. Seaman (The Barn), Zane Hershberger (Devilution), John William Holt (The Dooms Chapel Horror), Brett DeJager (Bonejangles) and Rocky Gray making his directing debut.

This past weekend we were able to catch up with producer-director Rocky Gray and ask him a few choice questions about the anticipated upcoming anthology film.

You can check out our quick interview below and then make sure to hit us up and let us know how excited you are to check out 10/31 in the comments below!

Dread Central: How is the film coming along?

Rocky Gray: The film is now completed and we are getting the perks out to our Indiegogo backers. The backers and Death By Festival got to see the first cut of the film in October and they loved it so we’re very excited to get the film out to everyone else very soon.

DC: What can expect from this anthology?

RG: Expect to have a lot of Halloween themed fun. Each segment has its own flavor so the pacing and the look change throughout the film. With masked killers, vampires, scarecrows, tricksters and old hags there’s something for everyone.

DC: Will there be a sequel?

RG: If there was a demand for it we would make it happen!

Sounds good to us. Thanks for chatting with us, Rocky!
