Factory has secured exclusive U.S. distribution rights to “The Editor,” including broadcast, digital, home entertainment and theatrical for cross-platform releases. Shout! Factory plans a strategic rollout for the film on a variety of entertainment distribution platforms and in all packaged media through Shout’s genre label and horror entertainment brand, Scream Factory.
“‘The Editor’ is catnip to horror film geeks and film geeks in general,” said Shout’s associate VP of acquisitions Jordan Fields. “It’s a superbly crafted, maniacal blend of comedy and horror, where the satire is both broad enough to include the casual fan and precise enough to reward the hardcore fan. There’s a reason Astron-6 has such a rabid following, and we’ll do our best to make sure ‘The Editor’ finds the massive audience it deserves.”
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Shout Factory for the release of ‘The Editor.’ Shout has re-released many of the genre classics that have inspired our work, and they continue to give new and intriguing genre films, like ‘The Babadook’ (Shout had home entertainment rights) and ‘The Battery,’ a proper release that will appeal to fans. ‘The Editor’ is our neo-giallo love letter to all things Argento and Fulci, and we feel it will be right at home as part of the Scream Factory catalogue,” filmmakers Kennedy and Brooks said in a joint statement.
