Night Terrors Series Entry #2 – Yellowbrickroad

A big tip of the hat to our friends over at the Platform Media Group for sending us more info on the Bloody Disgusting Selects and AMC Theatres and the Collective partnership to bring the best Horror films from around the world. Their first release on May 4th was the Berlin zombie apocalypse film, Rammbock.

Now we have the next in the Night Terror series, Yellowbrickroad, hitting the silver screen at participating AMC Theatres on June 1st.

“In the Fall of 1940, the entire population of Friar, New Hampshire—all 572 of them—abandoned their homes, their possessions and their lives and walked up an ancient trail, never to be seen alive again. Their fates remained a mystery for over seventy years, until a team of researchers discover the trailhead and attempt to retrace the path the doomed citizens of Friar took. A few among them believe they will find
something terrible in the forest. But it is the forest that will find something terrible in them. YELLOWBRICKROAD was an official Slamdance selection, and played at The Atlanta Film Festival and Screamfest to critical and audience acclaim, and won best feature at the New York Horror Film Festival.”

We’ve also been made aware of that you fellow fans of horror movies can visit that Bloody Disgusting link up top for a chance to win tickets to see the film which is directed by Jesse Holland and Andy Mitton, and stars Cassidy Freeman (Smallville), Anessa Ramsey (The Signal), and Lee Wilkof (Before The Devil Knows You’re Dead).

Update: More information has been given to use in the form of this press statement – “After their theatrical runs, films from the series will be available to fans of the genre in DVD, Video on Demand (VOD), online and television. Released though The Collective’s home-video partnership with Vivendi Universal, DVDs for
each film in the Bloody Disgusting series will feature unrated content, bonus features and special packaging for each title.”
