Black Fawn Distribution has landed the internationally acclaimed horror film HORSEHEAD for Canadian distribution. After debuting at the Cannes film market, HORSEHEAD has been showcased at some of the most renowned film festivals from around the world, including Fantastic Fest, Sitges International Film Festival, and Rojo Sangre in Buenos Aires, where it took home honors for best cinematography. HORSEHEAD has now found a home through Black Fawn Distribution. The film is set to be released on DVD, iTunes, VOD, and Limited Edition Blu-ray in Canada on May 5th, 2015.
“HORSEHEAD captured me from the very first frame of the film,” states BFD owner Chad Archibald. “It really is a beautiful nightmare that has been gathering some outstanding reviews from around the world. We’re so honored to be releasing such an amazing piece of horror in Canada.”
Directed by up and coming French filmmaker Romain Basset, the film will also mark Black Fawn Distribution’s first foray into HD as the company plans on releasing the film both through iTunes as well as an exclusive 2-disc limited edition Blu-ray release.
“A big part of our company is talking to horror fans on the ground and finding out what they want to see,” states sales manager CF Benner. “What we kept hearing was that a lot of people wanted Blu-ray, and we felt HORSEHEAD was a perfect fit for that format. Quite frankly, it’s a visually stunning film that deserves to be added to any horror fan’s collection.”
The 2-disc limited edition Blu-ray release promises to include a crystal-clear 1080p transfer of the film, a copy of the film’s haunting soundtrack, an hour-long behind-the-scenes documentary featuring cast and crew interviews, filmmaker’s commentary, and the original, uncensored trailer.
Plagued by recurring nightmares since childhood, Jessica has begun studying the psycho-physiology of dreams in an attempt to understand their meaning. When her grandmother dies, Jessica returns to her family home in the French countryside, where she receives a muted reception from her icy mother. After a difficult first night, Jessica becomes feverish and uses her bedridden state to practice the art of lucid dreaming. Jessica soon learns that her grandmother had been obsessed with the same evil apparition that now haunts her own nightmares. As Jessica’s skills as a lucid dreamer improve, she discovers that dark secrets run deep in her bloodline, and that they all lead to the monstrous HORSEHEAD.
