Channel Midnight to distribute Nathan Wrann's film BURNING INSIDE and James Felix McKenney's CANNIBALLISTIC!
Channel Midnight Releasing announces its arrival as a distributor of unique and unusual genre films beginning this spring with director Nathan Wrann's (HUNTING SEASON) dark and violent revenge thriller BURNING INSIDE, followed by a remastered version of James Felix McKenney's (AUTOMATONS, HYPOTHERMIA) debut feature CANNIBALLISTIC!
CHANNEL MIDNIGHT was founded by filmmaker James Felix McKenney (CANNIBALLISTIC!, HYPOTHERMIA) and producers Lisa Wisely (AUTOMATONS, SATAN HATES YOU) and Chase Tyler of The Work Room Productions as a means to distribute select titles from McKenney's filmography. Along the way they have come across impressive works by other talent filmmakers that screamed to be seen by their target audience.
"We started out forming the company simply to distribute a new "prime cut" of my first film CANNIBALLISTIC! and some upcoming projects that I've been developing. But when I saw Nathan's film BURNING INSIDE, I fell in love with it and knew we had to be a part of getting it out there." says McKenney.
BURNING INSIDE is an intense, surreal and violent exploration of the entangled nature of revenge and memory from Nathan Wrann, Dalton Gang Productions and Elmar Berger's Manic Entertainment. The film stars Michael Wrann and Kristina Powis.
CANNIBALLISTIC! is the first of five (to date) features from writer- director McKenney. This black comedy / horror film stars Don Wood (COLONIAL HOUSE, HYPOTHERMIA) as a recovering cannibal driven over the edge by his annoying neighbors. Shock Cinema magazine said about the movie during its original release: "CANNIBALLISTIC is a wickedly subversive tale packed with blood-soaked laughs and amusing characters." Rue Morgue Magazine declared, "Fine performances, strong direction, effective music and a smart, tongue-in-cheek script make CANNIBALLISTIC! a no-budget winner... check it out."
Channel Midnight's mission is to bring smart, non-traditional genre cinema to the audience for which it was intended for. Whether you like Horror, Science Fiction, Thrillers, Urban Dramas, Psychedelia, Off-beat Documentaries or the Unclassifiable (our favorite), Channel Midnight is committed to bringing you films with a unique voice that doesn't speak to the mainstream.
The company is currently moving forward to make the films available via Video on Demand, digital download and DVD through select retailers and the Channel Midnight website: http:// www.channelmidnight.com
