The horror-suspense feature “Dark House,” starring the iconic Tobin Bell (“Saw”), begins its day-and-date roll-out in March, Paladin announced today.
The movie, directed by Victor Salva, a genre favorite whose two “Jeepers Creepers” films broke box-office records and are seminal in the horror canon, will get a theatrical release on March 14 in L.A and New York, with other markets to follow.
The cable, VOD, Blu-ray Disc and DVD release is March 11.
“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.”
Joining Tobin Bell in the flick are 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.
