MVD Entertainment Group has acquired North American rights to Arto Halonen’s feature thriller MURDEROUS TRANCE. To celebrate, they’ve revealed a brand new trailer for the film and the release date!
Based on the extraordinary true story, MURDEROUS TRANCE follows detective Anders Olsen (Pilou Asbæk, “Game of Thrones”, Ghost in the Shell) as he investigates a case in which a bank robber shoots two bank clerks before fleeing with the money. With the help of a hypnotist (Rade Šerbedžija, “Downton Abbey”, Mission Impossible 2), Olsen discovers a sinister mystery involving mind control and the charismatic criminal Björn Schow Nielsen (Josh Lucas, Ford v. Ferrari, The Lincoln Lawyer) who secretly befriends the investigator’s young wife, bringing the menace ever closer to the investigator while putting their lives in great danger.
Directed by Arto Halonen and written by Halonen, William Aldridge, and Mitchell Bard, MURDEROUS TRANCE was produced by Halonen, Igor Nola, and Timo T. Lahtinen. MURDEROUS TRANCE stars Josh Lucas (Ford v. Ferrari), Pilou Asbæk (“Game of Thrones”), Rade Šerbedžija (Downton Abbey), Christopher Fulford (A Prayer For The Dying), and Sara Soulié (The Golden Anniversary).
“The team at Moonstone Entertainment is thrilled to be continuing our distribution relationship with MVD with MURDEROUS TRANCE,” said Ernst Etchie Stroh at Moonstone Entertainment. “We’re excited to finally present this edge-of-your seat mystery to film fans in 2021.”
“During this time while more people are at safely quarantining and seeking out a variety of home entertainment options, I’m looking forward to premiering this exciting new thriller on VOD, Blu-ray, and DVD from Moonstone Entertainment after the new year,” said Eric D. Wilkinson, Director of Home Video Sales and Acquisitions at MVD Entertainment Group.
