I only learned about Dante Tomaselli’s (Horror and Satan’s Playground) indie horror Torture Chamber a few weeks back when I updated the site with posters for the film. But now sales agent Shoreline has picked it up to rep the rights around the world.
Shoreline head Morris Ruskin told Screendaily, “Lately our company has been focused on arthouse, foreign language and documentary films, but distributors have not let us forget that their appetite for genre-driven fare has not waned. We are delighted to take this horror picture that delivers the goods to the marketplace.”
The film is a “Hallucinatory horror shocker about an unholy bond between a mother and her two sons. A Catholic priest, devoted to saving his family, tries to cure his deranged younger brother — but 13-year-old Jimmy Morgan is possessed by an evil too powerful to be exorcised by any religion. After escaping from a mental institution, Jimmy is back with a vengeance — and an army of children who follow his every murderous desire. The town trembles in fear as the youths attack and abduct its residents — innocent and guilty alike — dragging their victims to an abandoned castle and subjecting them to grisly torments deep within its underground tunnels. Those who discover the terrible secret behind the disappearances and deaths don’t live long enough to tell it. The teacher, the doctor, even Jimmy’s own brother and mother, will all confront their fates in the Torture Chamber.”
Torture Chamber stars Vincent Pastore (“The Sopranos”), Christie Sanford (“Desecration”), Lynn Lowry (The Crazies) and Ron Millkie (Friday the 13th).
