GRAVITAS VENTURES ACQUIRES “THE 16TH EPISODE”
In Theaters, On Demand and Digital on June 28, 2019
LOS ANGELES, May 9, 2019 – Gravitas Ventures, a Red Arrow Studios company, has acquired North American rights to THE 16TH EPISODE (previously known as LITTLE HORROR MOVIE). Written and directed by Jérôme Cohen-Olivar (The Midnight Orchestra, Kandisha), the film stars Cody Heuer (The Shoe), Rebecca Ramon (The Violet Blaze Chronicles) and Einar Kuusk (Chasing Ponies). THE 16TH EPISODE will be in theaters, On Demand and Digital on June 28, 2019.
“THE 16TH EPISODE is a special gem you won’t want to miss,” said Nick Royak from Gravitas Ventures. “Its locations and performances are something really unique in the independent horror space. Jerome Cohen-Olivar flexes his creative muscles on this piece by using real mythology as a world building tool and lures you in with a rich, exotic visual style. We are so excited to bring Jerome’s new take on found footage films to the big screen and various platforms, which will have audiences at the edge of their seats.”
In THE 16TH EPISODE, three YouTubers, each with their own inner demons, visit the mythical town of Casablanca. With their viewership down, they get invited to attend a satanic ritual and soon realize that maybe all their audience wants is to see them die.
The film is produced by Cohen-Olivar and Yasmina Hadimi (The Yellow Birds, “Tyrant”) and was executive produced by Mohammed Rizky and Hinda Sikkal.
Royak from Gravitas Ventures negotiated the deal with Linda Lichter on behalf of the filmmakers.
