Lions Gate Beats Mr Disgusting Up!

As I said in this post earlier today, “Lions Gate take note,” it seems as though they were already hot on the trail of the French film, Haute Tension (ultra positive review here)! Variety reports that, “Lions Gate Films has acquired French director Alexandre Aja’s blood-drenched tale of serial murder mayhem, Haute Tension. The deal for North American rights was closed at the Toronto Film Festival (where our reviewer Mike saw the film), where Aja’s horror thriller had its world premiere in the Midnight Madness section. Lions Gate is planning a spring 2004 release!”
