Terror Films has acquired the worldwide rights to Tristan Clay‘s demented indie horror flick Red Eye. The first phase of the release is set to land on digital platforms, Friday, February 9th.
The film is based around “The Legend of Red Eye.” This myth covers a violent, deranged masked murderer, who dwells in the backwoods of Black Creek, West Virginia.
“Gage Barker (Scott King), a young man who grew up on the tales of Red Eye as a kid, learns that there could be some truth behind these folk tales. With a group of his friends and his camera equipment in tow, they hike into the woods to seek him out or to prove that he is nothing more than a myth. They hike into the woods to seek him out or to prove that he is nothing more than a myth.”
Red Eye, directed by Tristan Clay, stars a large cast and the film has won several awards. Destinie Orndoff, Scott King, Heather Dorff, and Hayden Wilberger star. As well, Red Eye was nominated for “Best Feature,” “Best Director,” “Best Producer,” “Best Actress (Heather Dorff),” “Best Actor (Scott King)” and “Best SPFX” at the San Antonio Horrific Film Fest (2017).
“The film is not for those with a weak stomach and contains some graphic and violent scenes,” says the release.
“It’s so gory that Terror Films had to request that the filmmaker remove at least one moment in the story or risk having the film rejected by major digital platforms.”
“It’s a film for the true gore driven horror fans tired of the glazed over, more commercial horror fair we see coming out of the major studios,” said Terror Films President Joe Dain of the violence.
Red Eye will be available on several digital, North American platforms. Platforms include: iTunes, Amazon, Vudu, Google Play, and Xbox Live. Also, there are plans for a DVD release. As well, Red Eye will expand to worldwide markets through: iFlix, iTunes and Amazon International, soon.
