Mr Hush, an homage to 70s and 80s horror, picked up by Horizon Movies

Kino Lorber's Horizon Movies label today announced the acquisition of all North American rights to MR. HUSH, a new horror film that celebrates the classic style of the horror movies of the 1970's and 1980's.

The film premiered at Anthology Film Archives in 2011 and continued its limited theatrical release at the Laemmle Sunset 5 in West Hollywood, The Hollywood Theater in Pittsburgh, PA and most recently at the Majestic Cinemas in Matamoras, PA, among others.

The film tells the story of Holland Price, a devoted husband and loving father, who, unbeknownst to him, becomes the target of evil and dark forces. An idyllic, small Pennsylvania town serves as the background for this epic battle between good and evil.

Inspired by the horror films he watched growing up, director David Lee Madison set out to create a new film with classic sensibilities, not only in terms of story and structure, but also going as far as casting some of the actors from the films of that era. MR. HUSH is scheduled to be released on Blu-ray, DVD and digitally on AUGUST 7, 2012.

Madison's film is populated with icons of the 1980's horror genre that include Stephen Geoffreys (Fright Night, 976-EVIL), Steve Dash (Friday the 13th: Part 2, Nighthawks), Brad Loree (Halloween: Resurrection) along with co-stars Edward X. Young (Sea of Dust) and Jessica Cameron (Silent Night).
