The horror-suspense feature DARK HOUSE starring the iconic Tobin Bell (Saw), begins its day-and-date roll-out in March. Paladin will release the movie in New York and Los Angeles on March 14, with additional markets to follow. On March 11, Cinedigm launches the film in North American across cable, VOD, Blu-ray Disc and DVD. DARK HOUSE, which follows the terrifying road trip of a young man in search of his dark past, is the freshman effort of LA-based Charles Agron Productions. The company, which expects to announce an international distribution deal in coming days, is also in early stages of pre-production on a second horror title, Monday at 11:01AM.
DARK HOUSE is directed by Victor Salva, a genre favorite whose two JEEPERS CREEPERS films broke box-office records and are seminal in the horror canon. Salva co-wrote the script with producer Charles Agron, based on a story by Agron.
Headlining the cast is Tobin Bell. His portrayal of Jigsaw in the Saw franchise was called “brilliant and formidable” by the BBC, and made him one of “the most acclaimed names in the world of horror” according to Bloody Disgusting. Up-and-coming young actor Luke Kleintank (Pretty Little Liars, 1000 to 1) stars, along with Alex McKenna (Crossing Jordan, Dallas), Zack Ward (Postal) and multiple award-winner, Lesley-Anne Down (Upstairs/Downstairs).
Says Charles Agron, President of Charles Agron Productions,
“It is so gratifying to see this film–which I first sat down to write four years ago–wind up with an iconic director and star, an ensemble of very exciting young actors, and a pair of distributors with deep experience in horror to bring ‘Dark House’ to audiences.”
In addition to producing the film, and co-writing with Victor Salva, Agron plays a lead role in the film.
DARK HOUSE is a thrilling and horrifying road trip, full of twists and brutal surprises; a suspenseful thriller about a young man and a chilling old house that has survived decades, awaiting the return of its prodigal son… a house that can escalate Nick’s gift to see death before it happens, but holds within its walls the origins of a dark family legacy so horrible it may have already reached out to Nick’s unborn child.
