Cinedigm has announced that it will release horror picture KARMA on demand, digital, and DVD on October 1, 2019 and GOTHIC HARVEST on demand and digital on October 15, 2019, with a DVD release to follow on November 5. KARMA, which is directed by Nick Simon (The Girl in the Photographs, Truth or Dare) and written/produced by the team behind the I Spit on Your Grave franchise, the film debuted on SyFy Network as part of their 10th annual “31 Days of Halloween” programming last fall.
In the film, a young college grad has trouble making ends meet and accepts a job evicting delinquent tenants. As a result, he soon finds himself at odds with a karma demon who stalks him at every turn. Co-starring are Mandella Van Peebles (Jigsaw), Brytni Sarpy (Truth or Dare), Kanoa Goo (A Letter to Momo), and Tim Russ (Spaceballs).
GOTHIC HARVEST written by Chris Kobin (2001 Maniacs), the film reunites horror icons Lin Shaye (Insidious and Ouija franchises) and Bill Moseley (The Devil’s Rejects, Texas Chainsaw franchise), who previously starred together in Kobin’s 2001 Maniacs: Field of Screams.
GOTHIC HARVEST tells the chilling tale of four co-eds who head to New Orleans for Mardi Gras. When one of them disappears after connecting with a charming local, her friends race to find her before she falls victim to a sadistic Southern family plagued by a centuries-old voodoo curse. Rounding out the cast are Ashley Hamilton (Beethoven’s 2nd, Iron Man 3), also making his directorial debut; Abbie Gayle (Jack Reacher: Never Go Back); Carol Sutton (Ray); Ashton Leigh (“Ambitions”); Thomas Francis Murphy (Jeepers Creepers III); Tanyell Waivers(Ma); and rising star Sofia Mattsson (“General Hospital”).
Cinedigm Corp (NASDAQ: CIDM) announced today that it has acquired all North American Distribution rights to Papa Octopus’ BADLAND, a western starring Kevin Makely (Big Legend), Mira Sorvino (Mighty Aphrodite), Trace Adkins (Hickok, I Can Only Imagine), Bruce Dern (Once Upon a Time…in Hollywood), Tony Todd (The Final Destination), Wes Studi (The Last of the Mohicans) and Jeff Fahey (“Lost”).
Written and directed by Justin Lee (Any Bullet Will Do), BADLAND is set in the unincorporated areas of the West, where renegade factions have replaced law and order. In the ashes of the Civil War, one of the first African American Senators (Todd) commissions hardened Detective Matthias Breecher (Makely) with the impossible task of hunting down a trio of war criminals (Adkins, Dern and Fahey) who have eluded capture for more than a decade.
“Boasting beautiful cinematography and a striking visual style, BADLAND is a thrilling, cinematic throwback to classic westerns. Film fans will revel in the hero’s quest for justice, the ruthless villains, the panoramic vistas and old West settings,” said Melody Fowler, Vice-President of Acquisitions for Cinedigm. “Along with the exciting stand-offs, fist fights and shoot outs, the film delivers a terrifically entertaining showcase for all of its veteran actors.”
“We set out to capture the true essence of the Spaghetti Western for the modern audience: no CGI, no squibs, no stunt doubles,” said Producer Kevin Makely. “Mathias Breecher is the epitome of every classic gunslinger rolled into one, with a touch of Rambo. This was our first time working with Director of Photography Idan Menin, whose eye for dramatic lighting and meticulous attention to every detail was instrumental in capturing the beauty and grit of a classic Western.”
BADLAND was produced by Shawn Nightingale and Kevin Makely. Co-producers include Lara Cuddy and Todd A. Robinson with Jennifer Ambrose as Executive Producer. Original score by Jared Forman (“Hell on Wheels”).
