Uncork'd Entertainment has nabbed worldwide rights to THE 13TH FRIDAY, writer-director Justin Price's terrifying new addition to the supernatural horror genre.
Uncork'ed Entertainment President Keith Leopard says he's excited to be involved in what's sure to be one of the horror highlights of early 2017.
"It's good to be back in business with Justin - who we worked with on the successful distribution of THE CLOTH, DARK MOON RISING and FORSAKEN. I think it will be a highlight for horror fans when we release it early next year!"
Writer-Director Justin Price says "Uncork'd Entertainment has revolutionized independent cinema and there is no other outfit more fitting for THE 13TH FRIDAY then in their hands. We were very excited they decided to handle the worldwide rights to the film."
Uncork'd Entertainment will represent THE 13TH FRIDAY at AFM in November.
The film centers on a female refugee who discovers an ancient demonic device that opens the gateway to another realm resulting in unleashing a dark entity that poses as her daughter. After many failed attempts to have the church explain the creation of her worst nightmares, she learns that the house is cursed by an enraged spirit that dies on Friday the 13th. Now, a group of thrill seeking friends unknowingly unleash its wrath and damn their souls in the process.
Uncork'd Entertainment's recent releases include Kathryn F. Taylor's horror-thriller THE EVIL GENE, ALL GIRLS WEEKEND and FEED THE DEVIL. The distrib's upcoming releases include SPAGHETTIMAN, released late September, John Fallon's anticipated thriller THE SHELTER, and THE HOLLOW, opening in theaters in October.
