Film production, financing and sales outfit, Epic Pictures Group acquired the foreign sales rights to Australian thriller, Crawl, which it will debut at the Cannes Film Festival this May. The film will launch under our Blood Disgusting Selects banner. Trailer and first still inside!
Winner of Best director, actress and cinematographer from Screamfest LA, “‘Crawl’ is a character-driven thriller set in an unknown, rural town. A seedy bar-owner hires a mysterious Croatian to murder an acquaintance over an unpaid debt. The crime is carried out, but a planned double-crossing backfires and an innocent waitress suddenly becomes involved. Now a hostage in her own home, the young woman is driven to desperate measures for survival. A suspenseful, yet darkly humorous chain of events builds to a blood-curdling and unforgettable climax.”
Crawl is the debut feature film from twin brothers Paul (Writer/Director) and Benjamin (Producer) China. Renowned cinematographer Brian Breheny (The Adventures of Priscilla: Queen of the Desert, The Hard Word) not only shot the picture, but also produced. John Scott, acclaimed editor of Little Fish, Sexy Beast and The Quiet American, cut the film as well as editor Bin Li (The Way Back, Mao’s Last Dancer). AFI award-winning composer, Christopher Gordon (Mao’s Last Dancer, Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World, Daybreakers), scored original music for the film.
Film is tentatively scheduled for an early October release in the US on Ultra VOD and theatrical under Bloody Disgusting Selects and The Collective labels. Pre-Cannes, rights to the UK are currently closing.
