Official Details for Chillerama Acquisition, Distribution


Green, Lynch, Sullivan and Rifkin

The cat was let out of the bag a few weeks ago, but Image Entertainment officially announced the acquisition of Chillerama, “the ultimate midnight movie.”

Image says a theatrical release is planned for the anthology flick; there’s also the potential for a “road show” release this fall. A release date has not been revealed at the time of this writing.

This title is a nightmare come true for anyone who loves horror films, twisted humor, and skilled film making,” says Image’s Chief Acquisition Officer Bill Bromiley. Chillerama, and its foursome of fierce film makers, presents a bloody-good cinematic love letter to fans.”

Produced by ArieScope Pictures and in the spirit of classic “omnibus” films like Dead of Night, Tales From the Crypt, Creepshow and Twilight Zone: The Movie, with four vignettes that not only celebrate the golden age of B horror schlock but also nearly the entire history of horror cinema itself, Chillerama offers something for every bad taste.

With titles like “Wadzilla,” “I Was A Teenage Werebear,” The Diary of Anne Frankenstein,” and “Zom-B-Movie,” CHILLERAMA features appearances by Joel David Moore (Avatar, Hatchet), Lin Shaye (Insidious), Ray Wise (X-Men: First Class), Kane Hodder (Hatchet and Hatchet II), Eric Roberts (The Dark Knight, Sharktopus) and more cameos than one can (body)count. From the depraved minds of directors Adam Rifkin (Detroit Rock City, The Dark Backward), Tim Sullivan (2001 Maniacs, Driftwood), Adam Green (Hatchet, Frozen), and Joe Lynch (Wrong Turn 2, Knights of Badassdom), CHILLERAMA is a festival of gore, guts, goofiness and good times.

It’s the closing night at the last drive-in theater in America and Cecil B. Kaufman (Richard Riehle, Bridesmaids, Hatchet) has planned the ultimate marathon of lost film prints to unleash upon his faithful cinephile patrons. Four films so rare that they have never been exhibited publicly on American soil until this very night! What could possibly go wrong?
