XLrator Has ‘Found’ A Head In a Bag

Found

XLrator Media has acquired indie horror pic Found, a coming-of-age slasher about a fifth grader (Gavin Brown) grappling with the secret knowledge that his beloved older bro (Ethan Philbeck) is a serial killer, says Deadline.

Found is the directorial debut of Scott Schirmer, who’s won numerous awards for the pic from indie genre fests including plaudits from the New York City Horror Film Festival, Another Hole in the Head, and Elvira’s Horror Hunt.

After screening on the horror circuit for two years Found will get an August 15 theatrical, VOD and iTunes release via XLrator’s Macabre genre label.

Marty is the ideal fifth grader. He gets good grades, listens to his teachers, and doesn’t start trouble in class. But a darkness is beginning to fall over Marty’s life. The kids at school won’t stop picking on him, his parents just don’t seem to understand him, and now Marty must grapple with a terrible secret that threatens to destroy life as he knows it — his big brother is a serial killer! Brotherly love is put to the ultimate test in this emotional coming-of-age story that descends into full-blown horror.

Author Todd Rigney adapted the script with Schirmer from his own novel.

    I see that they have a kickstarter for the sequel which is about the video tape. Looks like it could be interesting.

    Thought it was going to be about Hellraiser judging by the picture. lol This movie sounds good, thinking it will be about the young boy following his brother who maybe killing off his enemies. Will be keeping an eye on this movie.

    Shit yes. Dont know how I’ll get to see it, but it is certainly on the list. Already shows from the trailer no budget or severely low budget doesn’t matter if you have a real story to tell, & know how to tell a story.
