Studio71 (the digital entertainment company and multichannel network of the ProSiebenSat.1 Group, and YouTube pranking sensation Matteo Moroni “aka” DM Pranks) announced that the U.S. digital premiere of the Australian horror thriller Scare Campaign (read our review here) will be on Monday, October 24, 2016. Written and directed by brothers Colin and Cameron Cairnes, the team behind 2013’s critically acclaimed 100 Bloody Acres, Scare Campaign explores what happens when a reality TV prank show’s latest victim unexpectedly turns the tables on the cast and crew.
Synopsis: The crew of a reality TV prank show facing dwindling ratings decides to up the ante by setting up a terrifying prank in an abandoned asylum. Things go horribly wrong when they prank the wrong guy. Brothers Colin and Cameron Cairnes deliver a night of blood soaked terror full of twists and turns that will satisfy any gore hound.
Scare Campaign stars Meegan Warner (Turn: Washington’s Spies, The Veil), Ian Meadows (The Pacific), Olivia DeJonge (M. Night Shyamalan’s The Visit), and Josh Quong Tart (Home And Away).
Hailed by pop culture news site Junkee.com as “nasty, gruesome, and wickedly entertaining”, Scare Campaign went on to win Best Film, Best Direction, Best Feature Screenplay and Best Sound at the Aussie horror festival Monster Fest in 2015. As the film gets ready for its U.S. digital debut on October 24th, the Scare Campaign audience should prepare themselves for an adrenaline-fueled horror movie, full of twists and turns, and plenty of scares.
Studio71 will be releasing Scare Campaign on ITunes, Amazon, and Google Play on October 24th.
