Black Slasher ‘Bitch Ass’ Secures Release For This October

Get ready for the next great slasher villain.

Bitch Ass

Quiver Distribution announced they’ve acquired the North American rights to the acclaimed horror feature Bitch Ass. The film, written and directed by Bill Posley, premiered at this year’s SXSW and won the Midnighter’s Audience Award. Quiver Distribution is planning an October 14, 2022 release. 

Blending comedy, horror, and social commentary, Bitch Ass tells the story of a gang initiation gone wrong when a group of four recruits break into a house of horror and are forced by Bitch Ass (Laleye) to play deadly games for their lives. Win and you live—lose and you die.

Teon Kelley, Tunde Laleye, Me’lisa Sellers, and Tony Todd star in the film.  

“Following an enthusiastic reception at SXSW, we look forward to bringing Bitch Ass to horror fans across America who will undoubtedly appreciate the mix of comedy and thrills Bill brings to this unique genre film,” said Quiver Distribution Co-Presidents Berry Meyerowitz and Jeff Sackman.

In her review out of Panic Fest, Mary Beth McAndrews said of the film, “A low budget doesn’t stop Bill Posley from creating the next big slasher villain with complex motivations and disgusting methods of torture.”

The film is produced by Zebra Kidd Productions. Posley and Laleye serve as executive producers alongside writer Jonathan Colomb, Shane Brown, Chris Quintos Cathcart, Bente Engelstoft, Wil Gelin, Erica Montolfo-Bura, and Honora Talbott.  Quiver Distribution’s Larry Greenberg negotiated the deal with WME Independent on behalf of the filmmakers.
