We want to be the company that young, experienced filmmakers come to with their exciting new projects.
Buffalo, New York (PRWEB) December 27, 2006
Red Scream Films LLC announced today that its supernatural horror film "Prison of the Psychotic Damned: Terminal Remix" has been acquired by York Entertainment for distribution to the world-wide home entertainment market. The deal was brokered by MadCat Movies who represented the film as this year's American Film Market in November.
"I believe this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship," said Red Scream Films LLC CEO David R Williams, "Both York and MadCat understand the market and more importantly, understand the horror genre. Working together, we will kick the moribund, sequel-ridden horror genre in the behind with films that deliver those things that hardcore horror fans want in a horror film."
The film is about a team of ghost hunters investigating rumors of hauntings in the long abandoned Buffalo Central Terminal. They soon discover that the rumors are true and the horror begins. The film stars scream queen Melantha Blackthorne and gothic icon Demona Bast.
"Fans of old school horror films like The Haunting and The Legend of Hell House will love this movie." said Williams, "But we didn't forget the gorehounds either and there are generous amounts of grue for them."
Founded in 2005, Red Scream Films LLC has produced three feature films to date and has seven in varying stages of development.
Established in 1990, the York Entertainment video label was acquired by Loose Cannon Films in 2004. A Los Angeles-based DVD distributor, Loose Cannon acquires and distributes feature films for the domestic home entertainment marketplace. With 30-50 new films each year being released, Loose Cannon's diverse library of Urban, Horror, Action, and Comedy titles numbers over 200, and continues to expand.
Distributed nationally by Ingram Entertainment, VPD & Baker & Taylor, York's product fills retail shelves in all major outlets, including Wal-Mart, Blockbuster, and Hollywood Video, in both rental and sell-through formats. Internet based distribution also provides alternative purchasing methods via mail order (Netflix.com, Amazon.com, Yorkentertainment.com) and instant download (CinemaNow.com).
Headquartered in Los Angeles, California, York Entertainment holds numerous satellite offices throughout the U.S.
Madcat Movies LLC is a dynamic new company representing quality films in securing worldwide distribution. Owner and CEO Tom E. Proctor explains, "We want to be the company that young, experienced filmmakers come to with their exciting new projects." Mr. Proctor is especially interested in edgy titles from new directors.
Williams said that he expects Prison of the Psychotic Damned: Terminal Remix to be released in the spring of 2006. A sequel is in the works.
