Inkubus Hits the Big Screen October 28th, 2011 With Ancillary to Follow in February 2012
EAST GREENWICH, RI--(Marketwire - Oct 3, 2011) - The Woodhaven Production Company announced today that Screen Media Films has acquired U.S. and Canadian rights to Chad A. Verdi's horror film Inkubus. The film will be theatrically released on October 28, 2011 and then distributed on VOD and ancillary first quarter 2012.
Inkubus, which tells the story of a skeleton crew working the final shift of a closing police station, was penned by Carl Dupre of Hellraiser: Hellseeker and Hellraiser: Hellworld, and Glenn Ciano (Infected) who also directed Inkubus. In the film, the night takes a gruesome turn when a demon named Inkubus (Robert Englund) calmly walks in with the severed head of a murdered girl. He allows himself to be restrained and begins to confess his litany of crimes, but it soon becomes clear he has only come to the station to spill more blood. The officers unlucky enough to be present are fated to participate in and witness Inkubus' crowning achievement of murder and mayhem.
The deal was brokered with Kevin Iwashina of Preferred Content, Suzanne Blech, President, Screen Media Films and David T. Fannon, Executive Vice President, Screen Media Ventures.
Producer and CEO of The Woodhaven Production Company Chad A. Verdi stated, "I am very pleased that my film is in the hands of such a high quality company like SMF; they are the real deal and know how to deliver a film to the marketplace. Inkubus now has the opportunity to be seen by millions of people through the SMF Video On Demand Program." Verdi went on to say, "We are all very proud of this film. Being able to get a theatrical release and seeing Inkubus on the big screen is truly mind blowing."
Blech stated, "We look forward to working with Chad Verdi and his team in bringing one of the horror greatest icons of all time, Mr. Robert Englund, back in a franchise-ready story."
Inkubus will be released into theaters on October 28, 2011 throughout the country, with locations in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Ohio, Florida, and California.
