Encouraged by strong retail response to the upcoming home video release of “Amityville Asylum,” Hannover House, Inc., (OTC: HHSE) has extended its distribution pact with London-based Northbank Entertainment, LLC to cover two additional direct-to-video productions. “Valley of the Witch” and “Midnight Horror Show,” both of which are now in production in the U.K. by special purpose entities related to Northbank, will be released by Hannover House in the United States and Canada next year.
“Andrew Jones and his team at Northbank have proven their commercial instincts, and we’re confident that their next two films will also be well received,” said Eric Parkinson, C.E.O. of Hannover House. “The domestic home video and V.O.D. markets are always open to quality, independent horror films of the caliber that Andrew’s team has been delivering.”
“Midnight Horror Show” has been described as a cross between ‘The Unholy Three’, ‘The Funhouse’ and ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’. The Moreau Family travels around the United Kingdom putting on the Midnight Horror Show: an underground variety act for an adult audience. Doctor Diemos Moreau is the father and host of the show. His sons are Trinculo (the clown), Apollo (the magician), Janus (the ventriloquist) and his dummy, Epimetheus. Deimos’ daughter Venus is also in the show as a burlesque dancer. But behind the curtain there is something more sinister going on than simple entertainment. Dar you enter the Midnight Horror Show? You’ll pay to get in, and pray to get out!
“Valley of the Witch” contains thematic elements of ‘The Wicker Man’ and ‘The Lords of Salem’. Recently divorced Kristen Matthews moves from London to a small village in Wales in search of a fresh start. She settles into her new surroundings, makes friends with her neighbors and all appears well. But a series of unexplained suicides occur in the village, leaving the local police baffled. Kristen begins to experience vivid nightmares and the local priest suffers supernatural attacks at church. Dormant spirits have been re-awakened. Can anyone stop the manifestation of ancient evil? Or is the village fated to pay for its dark history?
The first picture from Northbank Entertainment under license to Hannover House is the suspense-thriller, “Amityville Asylum,” set in an abandoned and haunted mental institution in Amityville, New York. Hannover House will release “Amityville Asylum” to the domestic home video and V.O.D. markets on Jan. 7, 2014. Key accounts for Hannover House include Walmart, Redbox, Netflix, Best Buy, Blockbuster and most major Video-on-Demand portals.
