I have big news (that thanks to Yahoo I got rather late…seesh!) I’m sure all of you remember our good friend David Madison right? Well you better! Anyway, Dave sent me an email the other day with good news about his film, Mr. Hush. It seems that it has been picked up my a distributor and we will see it on Blu-Ray and DVD August 5th, 2012. I’m so happy this has finally happened. He has been working so hard to make this happen (plus I really, Really, REALLY want to see it damn it!!!) So the following is the press release from Kino Lorber’s Horizon Movies:
HORIZON MOVIES ACQUIRES ALL NORTH AMERICAN
RIGHTS TO MR. HUSH (2011) A NEW HORROR FILM
FROM WRITER/DIRECTOR DAVID LEE MADISON
NEW YORK, NY MAY 15, 2012- Kino Lorber’s Horizon
Movies label is proud to announce the acquisition of all North
American rights to MR. HUSH, a new horror film that
celebrates the classic style of the horror movies of the 1970’s and 1980’s.The film premiered at Anthology Film Archives in 2011 and
continued its limited theatrical release at the Laemmle Sunset
5 in West Hollywood, The Hollywood Theater in Pittsburgh, PA
and most recently at the Majestic Cinemas in Matamoras, PA, among others.
The film tells the story of Holland Price, a devoted husband
and loving father, who, unbeknownst to him, becomes the
target of evil and dark forces. An idyllic, small Pennsylvania
town serves as the background for this epic battle between
good and evil.
Inspired by the horror films he watched growing up, director
David Lee Madison set out to create a new film with classic
sensibilities, not only in terms of story and structure, but also
going as far as casting some of the actors from the films of
that era. MR. HUSH is scheduled to be released on Bluray,
DVD and digitally on August 7, 2012.
“As a product of the 80s, I was exposed to some of the finest
horror films ever made,” said writer, director and executive
producer, David Lee Madison.
“In addition, my older brother, Bob, who was like a father figure
to me, adored the classic Universal films. Every
Halloween, these films would be shown on the local PBS
station; it is one of my fondest childhood memories.”
Steve Dash, known to horror fans as the first actor to portray
Jason Voorhees (as an adult) from Friday The 13th: Part 2
recalls, “David, the director called me and said that he was
doing this film and would like to have some roles in the film
filled with people from classic horror movies. I said send me
the script, I’ll take a look at it, and I really liked it. The role of
“Mac” that he had picked for me was great, so I decided to do the film.”
“I’m excited to be working with Kino Lorber’s recently
launched Horizon Movies label. It’s certainly an honor to have
my film distributed by a company that has shown their
dedication to the horror genre with their Redemption film line
of classic horror films and to be in the company of filmmakers
that include Mario Bava, Wes Craven, and Jean Rollin”, said
writer and director David Lee Madison.
Madison’s film is populated with icons of the 1980’s horror
genre that include Stephen Geoffreys (Fright Night, 976EVIL),
Steve Dash (Friday the 13th: Part 2, Nighthawks), Brad Loree
(Halloween: Resurrection) along with costars
Edward X. Young (Sea of Dust) and Jessica Cameron (Silent Night).
This acquisition was negotiated between Kino Lorber’s Vice
President of Home Entertainment Sales & Distribution Eric D.
Wilkinson and Writer, Director and Executive Producer David Lee Madison.
Kino Lorber curates high quality, critically acclaimed films for discerning audiences.
So, it’s with great pleasure that I give congrats to David Madison and the rest of the cast and crew that made Mr. Hush possible. Most excellent job guys and ghouls, can’t wait to enjoy it. I wish you all the best and…PARTY ON DUDES!!!
Until Next Time, My Freaky Darlings,
