Exclusive: Haunted Schoolgirls Horror THE COLOR ROSE Acquired by Rock Salt Releasing + First Images!
Writer-Director Courtney Paige (The Arrangement) has teamed up with award-winning producer, Siena Oberman (Skin, Mainstream, Crypto) and seven-time recognized cinematographer, Stirling Bancroft (Freaks, Colony, Lost in Space) for Neon Cinema Films’ edgy teen horror, The Color Rose.
Starring Kaitlyn Bernard (The Professor), Lochlyn Munro (Riverdale), Tahmoh Penikett (Battlestar Galactica, The Killing), Aleks Paunovic (Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters), and three-time award winner Dylan Playfair (Descendants 2-3), The Color Rose breathes new life into young adult female-driven content.
Rock Salt Releasing, helmed by Daisy Hamilton, will represent worldwide sales.
“It’s rare to have a team comprised of mostly young female writers, director and producers, which has been an inspiring experience. We’re ecstatic to join forces with Daisy Hamilton and Rock Salt Releasing, as the art-house label boards worldwide sales,” said Courtney Paige.
Layered with an intriguing and chilling narrative, The Color Rose follows seven private schoolgirls who start a cult, each embodying one of the seven deadly sins: lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy and pride. The sinning schoolgirls soon discover that their religious town has a terrifying secret: a mysterious killer who begins kidnapping the girls one by one. The Color Rose is a compelling and haunting tale with eerie twists, leaving viewers on edge and unsure what to expect next.
The supporting cast includes strong performances from Loretta Walsh (Bates Motel, A Series of Unfortunate Events) and Elysia Rotaru (Arrow).
