Indiecan Entertainment has acquired the Canadian and US distribution rights to End of Days, INC., marking Jennifer Liao’s feature directorial debut, which recently premiered at the USA Film Festival in Dallas, Texas.
“A dark comedy with a supernatural spin about a group of laid-off workers at a mysterious company that are bribed into working one last night, only to discover that processing the last of their ‘inventory’ will lead to cataclysmic consequences.”
The ensemble film, written by Christina Ray (Ginger Snaps Back: The Beginning), stars Mark O’Brien (Republic of Doyle), Carolyne Maraghi (Picture Day), Paul Sun-Hyung Lee (Kim’s Convenience), Janet Porter (The Listener), Anna Ferguson (Heartland), Yulia Petrauskas (Nikita), and Paulino Nunes (The Strain) as Mr. Godfrey.
The creative team also includes director of photography Benjamin Lichty (How To Change The World), production designer David Orin Charles (Meatballs), editor John Nicholls (Make It Pop), and costume designer Jenn Burton (Skating to New York). End of Days, INC. was produced by Sandy Kellerman and Jennifer Liao, with financial support from Telefilm Canada.
End of Days, INC. puts a supernatural spin on a workplace shutdown to darkly comic and chilling effect. It’s the last day of business before Godfrey Global Inventory shuts down for good, and the enigmatic Mr. Godfrey (Nunes) and his officious sister Esther (Ferguson) invite the company’s downtrodden staff– Jason (O’Brien), Janet (Maraghi), Mort (Lee), and Misty (Porter) –to a farewell party where they are to receive their final paycheques. Instead, they are bribed into working one last night, wherein they discover that processing the last of their “inventory” may lead to cataclysmic consequences.
End of Days, INC.’s trailer launches today, and the film is expected to hit theatres in early 2016 after its run on the festival circuit.
