After a logging company decimates an area of the forest, a rash of increasingly violent and unexplainable events transpires.

Well Go USA Slashes Through North America With “Kill Your Friends”

Well Go USA Entertainment has announced the acquisition of US and Canadian distribution rights to KILL YOUR FRIENDS, starring Nicholas Hoult (MAD MAX: FURY ROAD, WARM BODIES), James Corden (“The Late Late Show”), Craig Roberts (NEIGHBORS, 22 JUMP STREET), Rosanna Arquette (PULP FICTION), Tom Riley, and Ed Skrein (“Game Of Thrones”). The movie is directed by Owen Harris and written by John Niven, based on his 2008 novel and produced by Gregor Cameron (UNIGRAM), Will Clarke (Altitude Film Entertainment) and Len Blavatnik (AI Film and Warner Music Group).

As the twentieth century breathes its very last, with Britpop at its zenith, twenty-seven-year-old A&R man Steven Stelfox (Hoult) is slashing and burning his way through London’s music industry. Blithely crisscrossing the globe in search of the next megahit—fueled by greed and inhuman quantities of drugs and alcohol—Stelfox freely indulges in an unending orgy of self-gratification. But the industry is changing fast, the hits are drying up, and the only way he’s going to salvage his sagging career is by taking the idea of “cutthroat” to murderous new levels.


The movie also boasts a blistering soundtrack from the biggest music artists of the 1990s, including Radiohead, Prodigy, The Chemical Brothers, Oasis, Blur, and more, some of which are from Warner Music Group’s legendary catalog.

"If you loved music in the 90s, and you liked THE PLAYER, SWIMMING WITH SHARKS, and AMERICAN PSYCHO, it still doesn’t come close to describing how savagely brilliant this movie is,” said Doris Pfardrescher, President and CEO of Well Go USA. “The way it skewers every part of the music industry is outrageous and hysterical," she said.

“And Nicholas [Hoult] is so much fun to watch,” Pfardrescher said. “His character is this mix of ruthless ambition and total panic. He’s definitely not a good guy, but you still end up cheering for him,” she said.

“We’re thrilled to partner with Well Go to bring Owen Harris' hilarious and irreverent adaptation of John Niven’s best-selling novel to North American audiences. Great talent in a film that rocks with acerbic wit and music will win audiences everywhere,” said Mike Runagall, Managing Director of Altitude Film Sales.

"We're thrilled to stand behind a film about the hurly-burly of the music business with such a strong cast, especially as Warner Music Group is part of the Access Industries family," said AI Film's Ben Giladi.  "We look forward to seeing Go USA unleash the film in the US and Canada."

The deal was negotiated between Doris Pfardrescher at Well Go USA Entertainment, UTA Independent Film Group, and Mike Runagall of Altitude Film Sales on behalf of the filmmaker.
Executive producers on the film are Aviv Giladi, Vince Holden, Andy Mayson, Mike Runagall, Steve Norris, Ivan Dunleavy, Danny Perkins, Jenny Borgars, Kate Buckley, Nicholas Hoult, Johnny Vaughan, Amanda Ghost and James Sully.  Ben Giladi is associate producer. 

KILL YOUR FRIENDS will make its debut and premiere in a series of North American film festivals through the fall, with a theatrical release to follow in early 2016.

Poster And Trailer Released For “Berkshire County”

BerkshireCOThe official poster and trailer has been released for slasher horror “Berkshire County”. Gotta say that the killer in this is pretty terrifying. “Berkshire County” is directed by Audrey Cummings and stars Alysa King, Samora Smallwood, Bart Rochon, Aaron Chartrand, Robert Nolan, Madison Ferguson, Cristophe Gallander, Leo Pady. The film has its Canadian premiere set for June. And based on the trailer, “Berkshire County” looks like it takes the whole “the killer is in the house” nightmare to new levels of fear!

Alysa King plays Kylie, a teen who is coerced into a sexual encounter at a party by a popular boy (Aaron Chartrand), whose friends send video of it across social media. Her self-confidence in shreds, and her reputation in tatters, she is in chronic victim mode when she reluctantly agrees to a desperate plea by a couple in a secluded castle-like mansion to babysit their two children on Halloween. 

Alone in the country, she is a prime target when she begins receiving prank phone calls, and a boy wearing a pig’s head makes a suspiciously-late trick-or-treat call. What follows is a game of cat-and-mouse between Kylie and a surprisingly sophisticated gang of butchering hicks. It is a test of will that requires her to stand up and take charge if she and the children in her care are to survive the night.

First Teasers Released For Web Series “Paradise University” Season 3

Paradise UniversityJustin H. Guess returns this summer with an all new season of supernatural drama ‘Paradise University’. If you haven’t been watching the struggle between good & evil, and that perfect GPA pulling the students and townies of Paradise Landing then shame on you! It is marvelously delicious, with more melodrama and paranormal chaos than a ‘Passions’ story-line, and enough supernatural creatures to make Milton, Poe, and Goethe catch the big O from beyond the grave. I am enthralled with the complex story that weaves treachery, spell-casting, and the occult into these clashing lives of students and locals in a town that is a beacon for the curiositeit.

Paradise University’ is a small college in Paradise Landing on Milton's Island. The island is off of the New England coastline and only acceptable by ferry. It is infamous for its inclusive atmosphere, rocky beaches, lush woodlands and charming, old world buildings. However, dark secrets lurk in the shadows of Paradise Landing. A group of misfit students challenge malevolent forces with terrible consequences.

A small college town, Paradise Landing is privy to beautiful scenery, quaint little shops, a seaside bar a variety of characters and a mysteriously deadly virus that is decimating the entire student body. Personalities are bound to clash when egos, testosterone and sex are in the mix. Will Michael succumb to the pressures of his inner demons and finally find romance or will his life be forever changed for the worse when the past comes back to haunt him.”
