Crawl Nails Distro; Heads to Cannes
After a successful run at 2011's Screamfest LA, Epic Pictures Group has acquired the foreign sales rights to Australian thriller Crawl, which it will debut at the Cannes Film Festival later this month. The film will launch under the Blood Disgusting Selects banner here in the States.
Georgina Haig, George Shevtsov, and Paul Holmes star. Paul China wrote and directed the feature with his twin brother, Benjamin China, and Brian Breheny handled the producing duties.
Crawl is a character-driven thriller set in an unknown, rural town. A seedy bar owner hires a mysterious Croatian to murder an acquaintance over an unpaid debt. The crime is carried out, but a planned double-crossing backfires, and an innocent waitress suddenly becomes involved. Now a hostage in her own home, the young woman is driven to desperate measures for survival. A suspenseful, yet darkly humorous chain of events builds to a blood-curdling and unforgettable climax.
