Kristy, starring Ashley Greene, to premiere on Lifetime October 17th

KRISTY is a project I have been hearing about for a long time, ever since early 2009, when Dimension Films purchased the screenplay written by Anthony Jaswinski. The script received very positive word of mouth from those who read it, but the film didn't go into production until November of 2012, with DONKEY PUNCH director Oliver Blackburn at the helm.

Blackburn assembled a cast that includes Ashley Greene, Haley Bennett, Lucas Till, Chris Coy, Mike Seal, Lucius Falick, David Jensen, Erica Ash, and James Ransone to bring Jaswinski's story to the screen:

With the rest of the campus home for the Thanksgiving holiday, Justine and a few of her friends spend the weekend in their college dormitory: studying, relaxing and blissfully unaware of the terror that is about to unfold outside in the cold. Suddenly, confronted by a gang of violent outcasts, Justine’s quiet long weekend becomes one long lesson in survival as her and her classmates are terrorized in increasingly bizarre and brutal ways, leaving it up to her to figure out who her attackers are... and if they can be stopped.

We've reported news on KRISTY here and there over the last three years, covering it through its title changes to "Satanic" and "Random" and back to KRISTY, we've featured images and an international trailer, but we never caught word of a U.S. release, even though the movie has been on DVD in Germany since August of 2013.

Viewers in the U.S. will finally be getting a chance to watch KRISTY this weekend, but not in theatres or on DVD. The movie is scheduled to air on the Lifetime network at 8pm on Saturday, October 17th, with an encore showing at midnight.

This is certainly not the release I expected for KRISTY when I first heard the good word about it all those years ago, but I'm glad to have the chance to finally see it.
