IFC Midnight takes rights to Reversal after Sundance debut

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

IFC Midnight announced today from Sundance that the company is acquiring U.S. rights to Dark Factory Entertainment’s gritty revenge thriller REVERSAL. The film is directed by JM Cravioto and stars Tina Ivlev and Richard Tyson; it premiered in the “Park City at Midnight” section of the 2015 Sundance Film Festival.

REVERSAL is about a young woman, Eve (Tina Ivlev), who fights back and manages to escape a malicious abductor. However, after discovering she may not be the only victim, Eve unravels a darker truth and decides to turn the tables on her captor.

The screenplay was written by Rock Shaink Jr. and Keith Kjornes. Dark Factory’s Daniel Posada and Rodolfo Marquez produced alongside Alex Garcia of AG Studios.

REVERSAL is the first film under the Dark Factory banner. The production company recently filmed ONE SHOT, starring Topher Grace and Anne Heche, in Mexico and plans to continue making English language films in its home country. Dark Factory has also lined up a second horror film with JM Cravioto, 100 CRIES OF HORROR, which is slated for production this year.
