Disturbing Fantasia Film Fest entry
Hot on the heels of its run at the Montreal-based Fantasia Film Festival, U.S. rights for Christopher Denham’s directorial debut Home Movie have been acquired by IFC Entertainment for IFC’s Festival Direct Video On Demand and DVD rights Nationwide.
“In the tradition of great horror films, Christopher Denham’s Home Movie will keep you on the edge of your seat,” says Jonathan Sehring, President of IFC Entertainment. “Festival Direct will give a nationwide audience the opportunity to experience the terror straight from their living rooms.”
Home Movie chronicles the Poe family’s descent into darkness through a compilation of the familyâs home-made video footage. In the remote woods of upstate New York, David (Adrian Pasdar) and Clare (Cady McClain) Poe are attempting to live a Norman Rockwell life – perfect marriage, perfect house. However, the Poe children are hiding a dark secret among themselves and something is dreadfully wrong with ten-year old twins, Jack (Austin William) and Emily (Amber Joy Williams) Poe. To stop them, their parents must enter the nightmare of their childrenâs minds. As they attempt to regain control of their childrenâs lives the imperative question becomes who will ultimately survive the struggle.
Anchor Bay Entertainment acquired the Canadian DVD rights to the film.
