YellowBrickRoad, Cold Fish, and Atrocious Officially Heading to Theatres!
The good folks behind Bloody Disgusting Selects have just announced three more movies for a limited run in AMC theatres across the country, and we have all the details on each, including when you can expect them. Dig it!
From the Press Release
The Collective, a full-service entertainment management and content company, along with AMC Theatres (AMC), a leading theatrical and exhibition company, and popular horror website BloodyDisgusting.com, have partnered to acquire and distribute the best new horror and thriller titles from the festival and international markets to AMC theatres across America. Here’s the “summer slab” – the team’s selection of horror titles for summer movie guides and individual review, opening once a month all summer long!
• RAMMBOCK (previously announced) - May 4th, 2011 - Produced by Melanie Berke and Sigrid Hoerner, written by Benjamin Hessler and directed by Marvin Kren, this Fantastic Fest favorite marks the first German foray into the zombie genre. Kren’s tense, action-packed feature follows a group of strangers who try to fight off hordes of zombies in a Berlin apartment complex.
• YELLOWBRICKROAD - June 1st, 2011 - Produced by Eric Hungerford, directed and written by Andy Mitton and Jesse Holland, and starring Cassidy Freeman (SMALLVILLE), Anessa Ramsey (THE SIGNAL), and Lee Wilkof (BEFORE THE DEVIL KNOWS YOUʼRE DEAD). In the fall of 1940, the entire population of Friar, NH abandoned their homes and walked up an ancient trail, never to be seen alive again. Their fates have remained a mystery for over 70 years, until a team of researchers discover the trailhead and attempt to track the path the doomed citizens of Friar took.
• COLD FISH - July 6th, 2011 - From Sion Sono, the director of LOVE EXPOSURE and SUICIDE CLUB and based on a true story. Sono’s brutal serial killer film COLD FISH has won international acclaim on the festival circuit. In the film Shamoto’s teenage daughter is caught stealing; a generous stranger and his wife offer a solution – have the girl work at their tropical fish store. Too good to be true? You bet! Shamoto soon discovers the horrific truth about the seemingly perfect couple and their brutal business. COLD FISH is a bloodcurdling suspense drama that unveils the underlying insanity of an ordinary man.
• ATROCIOUS - August 3rd, 2011 - Directed by first-time helmer Fernando Barreda Luna and produced by Octavi Martínez, David Sanz, and Jessica Villegas Lattuada. After its international premiere, the film screened at Slamdance this past January, garnering a tide of online buzz and comparisons to PARANORMAL ACTIVITY. The film centers on the Spanish police’s discovery of hours of recorded evidence that shed new light on a gruesome murder investigation. The found footage documents a family’s summer holiday, where a brother and sister investigate a terrifying local urban legend. As their investigation intensifies, strange occurrences in and around the house escalate rapidly before culminating in unspeakable atrocities.
WHERE: AMC theaters. Check local listings for show times.
WHAT ELSE: The Collective has acquired several films from horror- and genre-heavy festivals such as the Toronto International Film Festival, the Berlin International Film Festival, Slamdance, Sitges Film Festival and Fantastic Fest and has begun releasing the films across multiple platforms starting spring/summer 2011.
AMC premieres a new title in the series each month across more than 30 major US markets. After their theatrical runs at AMC, films from the series will be available to fans of the genre on DVD, Video on Demand (VOD), online and television. Released though The Collective’s home video partnership with Vivendi Universal, DVDs for titles in the Bloody Disgusting series will feature unrated content, bonus features and special packaging for each title.
