VERTICAL SNAPS UP REBORN FOR US THEATRICAL RELEASE
Genre sales specialist Jinga Films has closed a US distribution deal in Cannes with Vertical Entertainment for Julian Richards electro-kinetic meta-horror REBORN. Vertical is planning to theatrically release REBORN in at least 10 markets including New York and Los Angeles, concurrently with premium placement on all VOD platforms and Home Video outlets.
Starring Barbara Crampton (Re-animator), Michael Pare (Streets Of Fire), Chaz Bono (American Horror Story), Rae Dawn Chong (Commando), Monte Markham (We Are Still Here) and introducing talented newcomer Kayleigh Gilbert, REBORN is a contemporary Frankenstein story set in Los Angeles, about a stillborn baby girl brought back to life by an electrical storm before being abducted from hospital by a morgue attendant. On her sixteenth birthday, empowered with the gift to manipulate electricity with her mind, she escapes her captor and sets out to find her birth mother leaving a trail of destruction behind her.
A nostalgic celebration of classic paranormal horror such as Carrie, The Fury, The Omen and Christine, REBORN received its World premiere at FrightFest in UK and has since screened at over 20 festivals worldwide, winning six awards including Best Sci-Fi Feature at Another Hole In The Head, Best Horror Feature at Mad Monster Party and Best Director at Fantasporto.
