Via a press release we learn that distribution house Tribeca Film, which launched last year, has picked up a slew of titles for theatrical, DVD and On Demand release. There are a batch of films on Tribeca's docket, but three genre releases of particular interest to us:
- THE BLEEDING HOUSE: Written and directed by comic book writer and first time filmmaker Philip Gelatt, this taut horror thriller is an original take on the home invasion genre about a family with a haunted past visited by a sweet-talking Texan killer who has come for retribution.
- DON'T GO IN THE WOODS: Vincent D’Onofrio makes his feature-length directorial debut with this uproarious rock ‘n' roll horror musical about the fate of a young band seeking a quiet place to write songs in the wrong neck of the woods.
- GRAVE ENCOUNTERS: Directed and written by first time filmmakers the Vicious Brothers, this cinéma-vérité style supernatural thriller follows a ghost-hunting reality television show host and crew as they shoot an episode inside an abandoned psychiatric hospital, where unexplained phenomena have been reported for years. All in the name of good television, they voluntarily lock themselves inside the building for the night and begin a paranormal investigation, capturing everything on camera. They quickly realize that the building is more than just haunted - it is alive - and it has no intention of ever letting them leave.
Tribeca Film plans to release these titles theatrically, on video-on-demand and via other platforms throughout the coming year. We'll update you when we hear more.
