Samuel Goldwyn Films Snags Rights to Mythological Horror Movie HEAD COUNT

Samuel Goldwyn Films has snagged the North American distribution rights to Head Count, a mythological horror movie directed by Elle Callahan from a screenplay co-scribed by Michael Nader. Look for it in select theaters and VOD platforms beginning June 14th.

“We were struck by the unique use of popular horror influences like The Thing and It Follows, melded with classic urban legends such as Bloody Mary. Elle Callahan has showed herself to be a smart new voice in the horror space and we are excited to help bring it to audiences,” Miles Fineburg of Samuel Goldwyn Films tells us.

Newcomer Evan joins a group of teens on a getaway in Joshua Tree. While exchanging ghost stories around the campfire, Evan reads aloud a mysterious chant from an internet site. From that moment, someone–or something–is among them. As unsettling, inexplicable events become more frequent, Evan realizes this summoned shape-shifting creature is targeting them to fulfill a deadly ritual.

Head Count stars Isaac W. Jay, Ashleigh Morghan, Bevin Bru, Billy Meade, Hunter Peterson, Chelcie May, Tory Freeth, Michael Herman, Amaka Obiechie, Sam Marra, and Cooper Rowe. We don’t have a trailer or poster yet, but we’ll keep you posted as the release date approaches. Stay tuned!
