Written and Directed by Palme d’Or nominee Klaus Huettmann, THE LIST stars Sienna Guillory (RESIDENT EVIL), Anthony Flanagan (“Being Human”) and Bill Patterson (“Law & Order: UK”). The story follows Christopher Corwin, a family man in his mid 30s who owns a small advertising agency. A court case he had recently lost has shown him the rich and powerful always win! That is why Christopher creates the website THE LIST. On this site, users can label corrupt individuals in public life and award them points as to how much of a menace they are. The result is a list of politicians, CEOs and bankers. The website quickly becomes a worldwide success but suddenly, whoever is number one on THE LIST appears murdered and public opinion starts to turn against Christopher.

This month, Factoris Films released the found footage thriller HOUSE SWAP on DVD in Blu-ray in France under the name HOUSE TRAP.

Directed by Mark Ezra, HOUSE SWAP follows Matt, a Californian scriptwriter searching for inspiration, and Ginny, his composer girlfriend, swap their tiny Echo Lake ranch house for a huge Tudor mansion in Glastonbury, England. When weird noises wake them at night and their possessions go missing, they know something is badly wrong. Matt Skypes the mansion’s owners in California and learns about a mysterious stalker who can enter through locked doors and windows. Now Matt knows why he got such a bargain.

Concealing this disturbing news from Ginny, Matt installs CCTV cameras all over the mansion but fails to discover how the stalker gets in. Unable to get any help from the police, Matt confronts the stalker one night but is savagely beaten unconscious.

Later, examining the camera footage, Matt discovers a cellar – the intruder’s horrifying den – and finds himself trapped directly below the deranged stalker. As Matt prepares for the worst, the police arrive with sirens blaring and arrest a man fleeing the mansion. It seems Matt and Ginny have won.

That night, as they sleep, the stalker emerges from a secret hiding place to drag Ginny from her bed. Matt struggles to snatch Ginny back but is stabbed. He escapes, blood pouring from his wounds, searching for Ginny – but discovers the stalker lurking in the shadows, axe raised. From now on, it’s a battle for survival.

Today it was announced that XLrator Media has acquired John Suits’ latest film, THE SCRIBBLER, for US distribution in 2014.

From the Press Release:

LOS ANGELES (December 20, 2013) – XLrator Media has acquired North American distribution rights to the sci-fi action-thriller THE SCRIBBLER, starring Katie Cassidy (Arrow), Michelle Trachtenberg (Gossip Girl), Eliza Dushku (Dollhouse), Gina Gershon (Bound), Sasha Grey, Garret Dillahunt (Winter’s Bone, The Road), Michael Imperioli (The Sopranos) and Billy Campbell (The Killing).  XLrator Media will release the film in theaters in Fall 2014.

THE SCRIBBLER follows Suki (Katie Cassidy), a young woman confronting her destructive mental illness using “T

he Siamese Burn,” an experimental machine designed to eliminate multiple personalities. The closer Suki comes to being “cured,” she’s haunted by a thought… what if the last unwanted identity turns out to be her?

“Combining cool sci-fi elements with ass-kicking action from a cast of hot and talented actresses, The Scribbler captures the mind-bending, anarchistic spirit of the original graphic novel and brings it thrillingly to the big screen,” said XLrator Media CEO Barry Gordon. 

The film from New Artists Alliance is directed by John Suits and written by Daniel Schaffer, who also penned and illustrated the original 2006 graphic novel on which the film is based. The film is produced by NAA’s Gabriel Cowan and Ken F. Levin of NightSky Productions and is executive produced by Kerry Johnson as well as Dallas Sonnier and Jack Heller of Caliber Media. This is the fifth major sale this year for New Artists Alliance including SXSW hit BAD MILO! and SXSW Audience Award Winner CHEAP THRILLS.  

“New Artists Alliance have pulled off a remarkable adaptation, staying true to the themes of the graphic novel while adding a wealth of visual treats I never even thought of. Fans of the book won’t be disappointed. Fans of Katie Cassidy may actually pee themselves when they get a load of her performance as Suki,” said Daniel Schaffer.
