Pardon the pun, and yes, it is kinda cringe-worthy, but with our new venture Dread Central Presents, we are NOT clowning around when it comes to bringing you some of the most compelling indie cinema you’ll find anywhere. Projects other distributors wouldn’t touch because they deemed them as going “too far.” Case in point: Damien Leone’s Terrifier.
One of the first titles to get announced for the new Dread Central Presents label through Epic Pictures was the festival favorite Terrifier. The gory 80’s “slasher” throwback takes place on Halloween night as the demented Art the Clown sets his sights on terrorizing two girls and anyone else that gets in his way!
When will horror fans here in the States get to see Art unleash his mayhem?
We’re thrilled to let you know that Terrifier will arrive in select theaters, COMPLETELY UNCUT, as part of a new monthly screening series called “Dread Central Presents” on Thursday, March 15th, and Friday, March 16th. It will be available on VOD March 27th.
“We’re so excited to be working with Epic Pictures and Dread Central Presents to get Art the Clown on the big screen and on VOD,” said writer/director Damien Leone. “It’s encouraging to have the support of people who respect the genre and are dedicated to preserving the filmmaker’s vision. TERRIFER IS COMING!”
The Dread Central Presents screenings will kick off on January 25th and 26th with a special double feature of Zombiology: Enjoy Yourself Tonight and cult favorite Turbo Kid. “We’re really excited to be doing something completely different with the way our theatrical model will work,” says Dread Central Presents Director of Distribution Rob Galluzzo. “We’re focusing on cultivating local horror communities to see our features at indie-friendly theaters before anyone else. And Terrifier is the type of horror film that should be experienced with a crowd on the big screen.”
Stay tuned for full details on which theaters near you will be screening all of the Dread Central Presents releases. You can also keep tabs via the official Dread Central Presents Facebook page right here.
