"Red Christmas" Acquired By Artsploitation Films


Press Release:
Artsploitation Films has acquired US rights from international sales agent Devilworks for the Australian horror film Red Christmas directed by veteran television director/producer Craig Anderson. The dark,violent and sickly twisted tale had its World Premiere at the Sydney Film Festival, its North American Premiere at Fantasia Festival and its European Premiere at London’s Frightfest.
The film stars (and was co-produced by) horror film acting legend, Dee Wallace (The Hills Have Eyes, The Howling, E.T., Cujo, Critters, Halloween,The Lords of Salem) as the mother of a squabbling family, gathered together in a remote Outback estate on Christmas Eve. When a mysterious, deformed young man named Cletus appears at their door, things soon go from petty insults to bloody, imaginatively orchestrated violence as Wallace attempts to protect her family from the vengeful intruder. The film deliriously infuses comedy, dark family secrets with outlandish gore and adds the always controversial subject of abortion in its blood-stained mix.


Initial critical response: VARIETY: “An energetic, candy-colored romp through genre tropes that manages to take its subject matter seriously while poking fun at itself at the same time.”
RUE MORGUE: “Nothing is sacred to Anderson and setting murderous mayhem on the eponymous holiday is only the beginning of Red Christmas‘ challenge to propriety and good taste.”;
BIRTHDEATHMOVIES: “Anchored by a genuinely great Dee Wallace performance, Red Christmas is a completely bizarre horror film…it enters the realm of perverse fascination.”
SCREAM MAGAZINE: “Striking, bold and brilliant; a sure-fire Christmas classic for horror lovers.”


Artsploitation Films president Ray Murray says, “We are excited to release this over-the-top, deliriously entertaining genre film. With its odd anti-abortion angle, it could very well be the first horror film of the Trump era!” Devilworks president Matteo Rolleri remarks, “’We are thrilled to be working with Artsploitation and couldn’t think of anyone better to release such a striking exploitation film! Red Christmas sits among the classics; it is kinetic, untamed and saturated in gore.’’
The US premiere of the film and the initial festival run will be announced in the coming weeks while the limited theatrical run is scheduled for August and DVD/Blu-ray and VOD scheduled for October.

The Annual Purge Hits The Small Screen With New Series


Via Blumhouse.com:

Writer-director James DeMonaco, creator of the PURGE universe, will act as a showrunner for the cable TV series, which is one of the first to be produced by Blumhouse and Universal Cable Productions as part of Blumhouse TV’s newly-formed partnership with ITV Studios.
DeMonaco first broke the news about the television project last summer in an interview with Entertainment Weekly, and it’s now confirmed the new series (full title TBD) will air on USA and SyFy.
We are excited that with the launch of this new studio, we are expanding our partnership with NBCUniversal by growing THE PURGE franchise into a television series,” announced Blumhouse founder & CEO Jason Blum, “and are grateful for their incredible support of Blumhouse overall.”
Details are still forthcoming about the project timeline, production dates and its place in the feature-film PURGE canon, but rumor has it the show may take the form of a loose anthology, running parallel to the events of the three films (with a fourth now in development).

Official Poster Released For "Countrycide"

The official poster has been released for upcoming horror "Countrycide". The film is written and directed by Brett Kelly and stars Robin Hodge, Joel Elliott, Andrew Galligan, Peter Whittaker, Trevor Payer and Lee Cyr. Kelly is expected to hit the festival circuit this summer with "Countrycide".

Introducing "Fractal Vision", A Terrifying New Anthology Series


A new anthology horror series is coming to a laptop new you! Fractal Vision brings together a diverse group of filmmakers, including Matthew T. Price, writer/director of Other Halves, Nicki Hunter, Carson Nicely (Conan), Miranda Parham (We need to Talk) and more.

Fractal Vision is inspired by everything from the Twilight Zone to 80s slashers to modern series like Black Mirror. It explores the weird, the fantastical, and the horrifying, all in just five minute episodes.

The first two episodes are already streaming on YouTube. DupliKate stars Nicki Hunter as a woman who’s found the perfect home; now all she has to do is eliminate the woman who lives there. A Final Girl’s Best Friend is an homage to slasher films of the 1980s, but with a twist.

While the Fractal Vision team has shot several episodes, their goal is to film 24 episodes. In order to accomplish that, they’re crowdfunding a portion of their budget through Hatchfund. Perks for backers include unrated versions of the episodes, with more gore, nudity, and explicit language than YouTube allows. Other perks include signed DVDs, set visits, and participation in the casting and production of the series.
