Earlier this month we brought you the badass trailer for director Jesse Thomas Cook's SEPTIC MAN just ahead of the films Fantastic Fest premiere in Austin. The film, which earned lead actor Jason Brown the Best Actor Award at Fantatic Fest, was written by PONTYPOOL scribe Tony Burgess and concerns...
...the unimaginable ordeal of a small town septic worker who becomes trapped inside a holding tank of raw sewage while investigating a deadly water contamination crisis. Imprisoned, infected, and insane, Septic Man struggles to find an escape while battling a tandem of revolting serial killers.
The cast features Jason Brown in the title role, with Molly Dunsworth (HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN), Robert Maillet (PACIFIC RIM), Timothy Burd (SAW 2 & 3) and Julian Richings (SURVIVAL OF THE DEAD) rounding the ensemble out.
Now comes word that genre friendly Raven Banner has acquired all international sales rights to the Canadian horror following its world premiere at Fantastic Fest. The deal was negotiated by Michael Paszt and James Fler for Raven Banner with Cook and Matt Wiele of Foresight Features.
Hopefully this means we'll be seeing SEPTIC MAN hitting theaters, VOD and disc sooner rather than later. If you haven't peeped it yet, you can check out the trailer for SEPTIC MAN below.
XYZ Films represents North American rights to the film.
