The Collective and BloodyDisgusting.com have acquired all U.S. rights from sales agent Celluloid Nightmares to Fernando Barreda Luna’s Spanish thriller Atrocious.
The title recently made news when word broke the Paranormal Activity team was going to remake it.
But hey, kudos to Bloody Disgusting Selects for bringing the original to the U.S. first.
The film will be distributed theatrically in at least 32 key markets through The Collective and Bloody Disgusting’s partnership with AMC Theatres, as well as on DVD through The Collective’s home-video partnership with Vivendi Universal.
Directed by first time helmer Fernando Barreda Luna and produced by Jessica Villegas Lattuada and David Sanz.
In April of 2010, Spanish police reported the discovery of 37 hours of recorded evidence that shed new light on a gruesome murder investigation. The found footage documents a family of five spending their holidays at their summer house, where brother-and-sister Cristian and July Quintanilla pass the time investigating a local urban legend of a girl who disappeared in the Garraf woods. As their investigation intensifies, strange occurrences in and around the house escalate rapidly, before culminating in unspeakable atrocities.
