London (August 9, 2011) – TLA Releasing has acquired US & UK rights (Theatrical, Non-theatrical, TV, Home Video (incl. DVD), EST, DTO, PPV, VOD, DTR, Streaming, all other internet and digital rights, New Media, Ancillary) for writer-director James Felix McKenney and Glass Eye Pix's religious horror Satan Hates You. The title will be released in October 2011 in both territories on TLA’s Danger After Dark label.
Dubbed “a clever collision of flamboyant gore and social commentary" by Variety, the over-the-top shocker follows Marc (Don Wood) a homicidal maniac driven by demons buried deep within his soul, and Wendy (Christine Spencer) a young girl who lives life fast and hard without a second's thought to the consequences. Their separate paths will eventually cross, but will it be on the road to salvation or the highway to hell?
Written and directed by James Felix McKenney (Automations, Hypothermia) and produced by Lisa Wisely, Larry Fessenden, McKenney and Jeremiah Kipp, Satan Hates You features performances by a number of genre icons including Fessenden (Habit, I Sell The Dead), Angus Scrimm (Phantasm, Alias), Reggie Bannister (Bubba Ho-Tep) and Michael Berryman (The Hills Have Eyes, One Flew Over The Cukoo’s Nest).
TLA President Derek Curl said: “We couldn’t think of a better title to re-launch Danger After Dark with. Satan Hates You has all the makings of a true cult classic and we can’t wait to bring it to the fans.”
McKenney added: "I have almost every DVD from TLA's Danger After Dark in my personal library, so I can't even begin to express how honored I am to have our film included in the series."
The film is slated for a home video release of October 10 in the UK and October 18 in the US.
