Gravitas Ventures Announces Five New Acquisitions for Its Burgeoning Horror Slate
With the "frightful" season in full swing, Gravitas Ventures has announced its acquisitions for October and November as part of the company's Gravitas Horror division's ongoing horror release schedule.
From the Press Release:
Gravitas Horror programs 10 hours worth of horror content each month and has released over 250 horror titles in the past two years. A film released within the Gravitas Horror offering is guaranteed to reach 100 million VOD homes with cable, satellite, telco, and online operators iTunes, Vudu, Amazon, and Sony Playstation, among others.
Gravitas President Michael Murphy, whose company was named to Inc. Magazine’s 500 fastest growing private company list two years in a row, believes there is a strong thirst for these horror titles in the VOD landscape. “We release 100 horror films a year into more than 100 million homes. Video on Demand allows the films of new directors to have a life today and, as technology evolves, an 'after-life’ as well,” says Murphy.
Gravitas works with more than 500 content partners. The Gravitas acquisitions team recently attended Shriekfest, Screamfest, and the LA Horror Film Festival to seek out new content and plans to attend AFM, Sundance, and SXSW in the coming months.
The latest Gravitas VOD titles include:
10/2 – DUST UP – starring "Buffy the Vampire Slayer” alum Amber Benson
10/9 – BLOODY BLOODY BIBLE CAMP – slated to screen at the LA Horror Film Festival
10/26 – IT'S IN THE BLOOD – starring Lance Henriksen, which recently won ‘Best Thriller’ at Shriekfest
11/1 – THE AFFLICTED – starring Leslie Easterbrook and Kane Hodder
11/13 – THANKSKILLING 3 – the first film to skip its own sequel features a fowl-mouthed turkey carving up victims as he searches for that last remaining DVD of ThanksKilling 2, which is his key to world domination
Other films currently in release include: Bad Meat, Lost Lake, Cropsey, The Coffin, Ahh Zombies, Anniversary of Shallow Creek, and Dead Matter.
