XLrator Media Grabs Hold Of North American Rights For Thriller SUN CHOKE
Ben Cesciman's sophomore effort Sun Choke has found distribution with XLrator Media through their Macabre label. The film will undoubtedly get a theatrical and digital release and we will likely have a home video release shortly after that.
LOS ANGELES (January 19, 2016) - XLrator Media has acquired North American distribution rights to the thriller SUN CHOKE and will release the film this Summer on its acclaimed "MACABRE" genre label. The film has played over a dozen festivals including FrightFest and the Stanley Film Festival.
Written and directed by Ben Cresciman (Negative Space), SUN CHOKE stars iconic horror film actress Barbara Crampton (You're Next, Re-Animator, Lords of Salem), Sarah Hagan ("Freaks and Geeks," "Buffy the Vampire Slayer") and Sara Malakul Lane (17 & Life: Jailbait, the upcoming Kickboxer: Vengeance) along with Evan Jones, Joe Nieves and Jim Boeven. The film features a haunting score by noted musician/producer Boom Bip (aka Bryan Hollon).
You can find Izzy's Stanley Film Festival review below as well as a couple interviews she did with Cresciman and his lovely cast while at the fest."SUN CHOKE is a deeply unsettling psychological thriller in the vein of Roman Polanski's Repulsion that will leave audiences emotionally shaken and questioning the line between reality and nightmare. It's an impressive, assured work that marks Ben Cresciman as an important filmmaker to watch," said XLrator Media CEO Barry Gordon.
