High Octane Pictures To Distribute Horrific New GEHENNA: WHERE DEATH LIVES

Highly-anticipated creature-feature Gehenna: Where Death Lives, directed, produced, and co-written by makeup and special effects master Hiroshi Katagiri, has been acquired by High Octane Pictures.


Encompassing horror, suspense and a twist that will blow your mind, Gehenna  fixes on five people who enter a hidden bunker from WW2, and realize it’s way more than a bunker. Some fates are MUCH worse than death.

The ensemble cast includes Doug Jones (Pan’s Labyrinth, Crimson Peak), Genre icon Lance Henriksen (TV’s Millennium, Aliens), Eva Swan, Simon Phillips, and Justin Gordon.

Spectral Motion, known for award-winning work on such films as Hellboy  and Looper,  did the makeup effects on the creature played by Jones.

Gehenna  has been accepted at festivals that include Shriekfest and with the support of High Octane Pictures, will have a major presence at this year’s American Film Market.

High Octane Pictures is a newly-minted shingle, founded by industry vet and CAA Alum Galen Christy. It has acquired the international sales rights for the film, which boasts high-end sets and spectacular effects work from director Hiroshi Katagiri himself, and his friends from the industry. Katagiri’s storied career includes working at Stan Winston Studios and also working with Steven Spielberg on Jurassic Park, A.I.  and War of the Worlds. Other credits include Pacific Rim, The Hunger Games, and Aliens vs Predator: Requiem. Gehenna  marks his debut as a feature film director.
