Wild Eye Releasing, a sponsor of the PollyGrind Film Festival since 2011, has launched a new distribution label, PollyGrind Presents, in conjunction with Chad Clinton Freeman’s international showcase of films. The first title, Play Hooky, will be released later this year.
Full specs will be announced shortly, but Wild Eye and PollyGrind are packing the Play Hooky DVD with bonus features, including exclusive content such as a commentary and liner notes from Freeman as well as short films hand-picked from the festival.
Below we have a look at the film’s artwork, trailer, and more info on the new label.
Wild Eye CEO Rob Hauschild called PollyGrind “a brilliant, head-on collision of arthouse and grindhouse movies,” and added, “Wild Eye is dedicated to giving independents like Play Hooky a position in the mainstream through traditional distribution, and PollyGrind is ground zero for discovering true independent talent.”
Winner of the Most Innovative Film award at PollyGrind in 2012, Play Hooky is the perfect film to christen the partnership with Wild Eye, says Freeman. “Play Hooky is the epitome of the pioneering spirit that inspired me to found PollyGrind. It’s a great example of making something out of nothing, and I’m really excited to be helping to share this film with the world.”
Five high school friends skip class in hopes of finding the perfect spot to party. They chose the wrong place. Against all warnings, they break into an abandoned mental hospital, notorious for reports of ghost sightings, satanic rituals, and demonic possessions. Now, armed only with a camera, they are trapped inside, haunted and hunted by something they cannot stop, reason with, or describe. The camera captures every last breath in the fight for their lives.
