MORBIDO TV Acquires Nearly Everything The World Of Horror Has To Offer Ahead Of Spring Launch
From Full Moon they nabbed 35 movies including The Puppet Master franchise. From Reel Suspects the got Norway, Across the River and horror anthology The Taking. And from my friends here in Toronto, Raven Banner Entertainment, it looks like they pretty much cleared the shelves. They got 45 films including Wolfcop, Septic Man, Resolution and One Hundred Years of Evil.
Reprising another franchise, Guisa has licensed 365 of Joe Dante's Trailers From Hell - commentated trailers on films audiences should know or know much better, delivered by Guillermo del Toro and Eli Roth, among many others - and is in talks with Dante about a new season with Latin/Hispanic directors talking about Latin/Hispanic classics.
These acquisitions will be added to a tonne of original content starting with Terror Mx, an episodic series from Rafa Lara (Cinco de Mayo: La Battalia) outlining "the complete history of horror-fantasy cinema in Mexico," said Morbido Fest CEO and all around lovely man Pablo Guisa Koestinger (pictured above at the closing ceremony from this year`s Morbido Fest) at Ventana Sur`s Blood Window this past week.
There are also plans for director-producer Mick Garris to make more episodes of his interview show Post Mortem. The first series will air on Morbido TV with Spanish Subtitles.
