AFM: Tattooist Sets Up Shop at Ghost House


Raimi, Tapert eye home video plans

Peter Burger’s supernatural yarn The Tattoist – playing this week at the American Film Market – is getting North American distribution through Sam Raimi and Rob Tapert’s Ghost House Pictures via Sony Home Entertainment.

Raimi’s house of horrors previously released “The Grudge” films, 30 Days of Night and The Messengers.

Burger sought post-production advice from Raimi and Tapert which apparently led to an amiable working friendship. “We started our careers independently producing our horror films and understand the challenges of these filmmakers,” Tapert tells The Hollywood Reporter.

Starring Jason Behr, the New Zealand-lensed film concerns a tattooish who unleashes an angry spirit through one of his designs. Click on the title above for a trailer.
