XLrator Lands a Macabre Amnesiac


The idea of losing one’s memory sounds like a completely awful idea. Still, I wouldn’t mind striking the Nightmare on Elm Street remake or that damned Twilight franchise from my memory for good. In any event, amnesia takes on some deadly consequences in the new flick Amnesiac.

From the Press Release:
XLrator Media has acquired North American distribution rights to the psychological thriller AMNESIAC starring Kate Bosworth (Still Alice, Superman Returns) and Wes Bentley (The Hunger Games series, Interstellar). XLrator Media will release the film in summer 2015 on its acclaimed “MACABRE” genre label.

AMNESIAC was directed by Michael Polish (Twin Falls Idaho, Big Sur) from a script by Mike Le and Amy Kolquist. The film was produced by Lucas Jarach and Jason Price.

“AMNESIAC is a stylish and twisted thriller in the vein of Misery with superb performances by Kate Bosworth and Wes Bentley. Audiences will discover a side of Kate they have never seen before!” said XLrator Media CEO Barry Gordon.

AMNESIAC tells the story of a man (Bentley) who wakes up in bed suffering from memory loss after being in an accident, only to begin to suspect that his wife (Bosworth) may not be his real wife. The web of lies and deceit deepen inside the house where he soon finds himself a prisoner.

“We are thrilled to work with XLrator Media on the release of AMNESIAC. Their MACABRE label has been the home of many of the best and most innovative genre movies of the last few years,” said director Polish.

The deal was negotiated by XLrator Media’s Barry Gordon with Paradigm’s Ben Weiss and Meghan Oliver.
