Anthology Horror Minutes Past Midnight Coming in October

New short horror anthology from Canada readies for VOD release this fall.

Fresh from Fantasia Film Festival’s latest Frontieres Co-Production Market, five companies have joined forces to release a series of anthology feature films curated from the long-running Toronto-based short film festival Little Terrors. The first release, titled Minutes Past Midnight, is set for a limited theatrical release in early October, followed by North American VOD on October 18, then DVD on February 7, 2017.

Each release will feature high-quality genre short films curated from the hundreds of selections exhibited by Little Terrors over their previous 5 years of operation, and scouted from festivals worldwide. The series is the brain-child of Little Terrors founder Justin McConnell, and Indiecan Entertainment’s Avi Federgreen. The first release Minutes Past Midnight features 9 stories from directors Robert Boocheck, Lee Cronin, Francisco Sonic Kim, Ryan Lightbourn, Marc Martinez Jordan, Kevin McTurk, James Moran, Christian Rivers, and Sid Zanforlin.

The anthologies, produced by Indiecan, Unstable Ground and Rue Morgue Magazine, will be released in the US in partnership between Uncork’d Entertainment and Indiecan Entertainment, while Indiecan and Raven Banner Releasing will cooperate in Canada. Further international sales will be represented by Raven Banner Entertainment.

The deal was negotiated between Keith Leopard of Uncork’d, Rodrigo Gudino and Dave Alexander of Rue Morgue, Michael Paszt and James Fler at Raven Banner, Indiecan’s Avi Federgreen, and Unstable Ground’s Justin McConnell.
