Home Entertainment and Theatrical Film Distributor Uncork’d Entertainment has revealed a first look at the highly-anticipated “Circus Kane.”
Starring Jonathan Lipnicki and directed by Christopher Douglas-Olen Ray, “Circus Kane” sees a reclusive circus master invite a group of social media stars to his house of haunts. Anyone who can make it out before being scared into submission will earn $250,000 — but the social media stars soon learn they are not only competing for money but also fighting for their lives. Bill Voorhees and Mark Christopher Lawrence also star.
James Cullen Bressack and Zack Ward wrote “Circus Kane,” based on a story by Sean Sellars. Producing are DeInstitutionalized’s Gerald Webb and Christopher Douglas-Olen Ray along with Bressack. Uncork’d President Keith Leopard made the deal with the filmmakers at AFM in November. He recently saw the first footage from the film. “The footage I’ve seen is incredible – and I know horror fans will appreciate it too, so we’ve decided to give them a little taste”, says Leopard. “We look forward to inviting everyone to the circus later this year!”
“Circus Kane” will be unleashed in all its bloody glory at the Cannes Film Festival in May.
Uncork’d Entertainment’s recent releases include “Pitchfork,” the acclaimed documentary “Doomed! The Untold Story of Roger Corman’s Fantastic Four,” and the UK horror film “The Snare,” from C.A Cooper. The distributor’s upcoming releases include “Bornless Ones,” in theaters February 10th, “Do You Dream in Color?,” premiering on VOD February 10th, and “Ghosts of Darkness,” coming in March.
