Film Mode Entertainment Announces North American Distribution Deals For Two New Thrillers THE HARROWING, MAD GENIUS

11:37 PM


In spite of a rapidly changing marketplace where companies are pulling out all the stops to not only remain competitive and relevant, Film Mode Entertainment’s distribution arm is gaining force in the marketplace. 

Clay Epstein, President of Film Mode Entertainment is proud to announce Film Mode is expanding into North American distribution with the release of two mind-bending horror/thriller feature films.

Earning over $1 billion in ticket sales in 2017, the biggest box office year ever for horror in the U.S., "THE HARROWING" and "MAD GENIUS" are perfect additions not only for audiences across North America but throughout the global marketplace.

Written and directed by veteran horror legend JON KEEYES (AMERICAN NIGHTMARE, FALL DOWN DEAD), "THE HARROWING" stars the legendary MICHAEL IRONSIDE (TOTAL RECALL, SCANNERS), who among being nominated for almost a dozen awards, has become widely known for his depiction of fearsome villains in this genre.

Audience Favorite Award WINNER at the USA Film Festival TEX-FEST, "THE HARROWING" has garnered numerous accolades in a short time. 

The film was a Jury Nominated Finalist for Best Feature, Best Director, Best Screenplay and Best Actor by both the LONDON International Filmmakers Festival (LIFF) and the BUFFALO Dreams Fantastic Film Festival. 

 Most recently, "THE HARROWING" received the Gold Remi Jury Award for Best Suspense Thriller at the WORLDFEST/HOUSTON International Film Festival.

The cast is further bolstered by MATTHEW TOMPKINS (SICARIO) and ARNOLD VOSLOO(THE MUMMY, G.I. JOE). 

The market screening in Cannes takes place on May 9 at 1:30 p.m. in LERINS 2.

The horror/thriller follows a Vice Detective (TOMPKINS), who is wrongly accused of the ritualistic murder of his best friend. 

 Bent on finding the truth, he is plunged into Hell when he goes undercover and discovers the truth behind a demonic myth.
“Horror and thriller fans are in for the ride of their lives with 'THE HARROWING' - a gripping, mind-bending, nail-biter of a film that has a great deal of worldwide commercial appeal with the recent success of the genre,” Epstein said.
Film Mode Entertainment is further thrilled to release 2017 FrightFest Official Selection "MAD GENIUS," available on demand and VOD July 3 throughout the United States. 

This sci-fi thriller featuring amazing special F/X delves deep into the controversial, chilling and terrifying world of bio-hacking, especially and frighteningly relevant in current times, and stars SPENCER LOCKE (TARZAN)and FARAN TAHIR (IRON MAN).

Award-winning commercial director ROYCE GORSUCH’S feature directorial debut is an action-packed sci-fi thriller about a brilliant scientist on a mission to hack into the human mind in order to save humanity from its own catastrophic errors. 

Once he begins work on the controversial project, there is no stopping him as he is pushed to do whatever is necessary to accomplish his mission.
"This film was born from the exponentially evolving technological world we now live in and tells the paradoxical story of a generation who can currently change the world from their computers, and in the future will change the world by enhancing the power of the human mind. It was incredible to see the cast not only grasp these far reaching concepts of the film, but bring it to life with incredibly thrilling and emotionally charged performances. We assembled a team of geniuses to execute film, and we are thrilled to now partner with Clay Epstein and his team of geniuses for its release," Gorsuch said.
“This is one of the most creative and commercially relevant films in the marketplace that knows exactly who its audience is; Millennials and Gen Z,” Clay Epstein, President of Film Mode Entertainment, said. 
The combined experience of the innovative team at FME proves to have an effect on their staying power in an ever-changing industry.

Film Mode Entertainment is also representing international rights on both films.
