Anchor Bay Entertainment Canada and Three Little Birds Productions acquired Among Friends for home video in Canada. This new horror film marks the directorial debut of scream queen Danielle Harris and is the story of a group of friends who get together for a murder mystery party, but things take a dark turn when one hijacks the evening and is out for blood.
“Among Friends is a twisted horror film about a dinner party gone wrong. Set against an 80s backdrop, good times take a dark turn when one in the group hijacks the evening in the name of Integrity. Through an attempt to help the others come clean about secret betrayals against one another, it’s revealed who’s willing to cut through the bone to expose the truth.”
In other news, Kaleidoscope Film Distributors shares the official trailer and poster for The Seasoning House, which follows an orphaned girl, imprisoned and put to work in a brothel by local militia, plots a bloody and brutal revenge against her captors. Paul Hyett (The SFX genius behind The Descent, Eden Lake, The Woman in Black) directs Rosie Day, Sean Pertwee (Event Horizon, Dog Soldiers, Equilibrium), Kevin Howarth and Anna Walton (Hellboy 2, Mutant Chronicles).
“‘The Seasoning House’ is a grim and soulless place where young girls are bought and sold for men’s pleasure. Here we meet Angel (Rosie Day), a young, orphaned girl enslaved by Viktor (Kevin Howarth). Unbeknownst to her master, she moves between the walls and crawlspaces of the house – silently observing, learning and planning for her escape. When her closest confident is savagely killed, Angel can no longer contain her rage and sets out through both ingenuity and brutality to seek justice.“
