Cinetic Rights Management has acquired the North American digital rights for Gut, per Variety. It’s directed by Elias (just Elias), and stars Jason Vail, Nicholas Wilder and Sarah Schoofs.
In the film (John Marrone’s review here), “Something is missing in Tom’s life. His marriage has lost its spark, his job is suffocating him, and his childhood best friend Dan still clings to the past. Every day he goes through the motions, becoming increasingly detached from those around him. Dan thinks he has the solution, a mysterious video Tom’s got to see to believe… tonight. What Dan shows him leaves Tom unsettled, flooding his mind with disturbing images and desires, and binding the two friends together with its ugly secret. One video soon follows another and another, blurring the line between reality and voyeuristic fascination, and threatening to dismantle everything around them.”
Gut will also be screening at the Fantastic Zagreb Film Festival in July and at Louisville’s upcoming Fright Night Film Festival.
