A Young Woman Finds Out What Really Scares Her in THE DOCUMENTARY Releasing from Terror Films

LOS ANGELES, CA (August 21, 2017) – Terror Films is set to release THE DOCUMENTARY onto digital platforms this Tuesday, August 22. The film was written and directed by Walter Moise (producer/editor of the award winning sci-fi indie Counter Clockwise).  The cast is comprised of Tristin Rupp, Jake B. Miller, and Aaron Bowden. The film’s official artwork and trailer are available now.

Through a found footage aesthetic, the story follows Sandra Novak (Rupp) who has agreed to be the subject of a documentary film. The documentary deals with “conquering fear.” Unbeknownst to her, the filmmaker that has chosen her may have ulterior motives as he infiltrates her home and begins to gather information to sabotage her relationship and her life.

Moise has something to say of the filmmaking process. Moise has said: “I was trying to capture the closest thing to actual reality. I shot the whole film in chronological order and chose not to write a script but a treatment that the actors would improvise.”  Moise also says that he has derived inspiration from the works of Michael Haenke and Stanley Kubrick.

In their ongoing effort to bring the best and most diverse indie horror content to the masses, Terror Films will release this film across multiple digital platforms. Platforms include:  iTunes, Amazon Instant/Prime, Vudu, Google Play/You Tube, X-Box Live and many others.  The release begins with North America and will be followed by a worldwide digital release on iFlix.  

Terror Films has provided the official poster art plus a link to the official trailer and one clip from the film (“You told me about a fear…”).

Shaun Hart’s Controversial Film Del Playa Creates a Monster this July 21st

LOS ANGELES, CA (Tuesday, July 17, 2017) Terror Films is set to release the indie thriller DEL PLAYA across multiple digital platforms in North America on Friday, July 21st.  

Del Playa Stalker Still

The film’s story follows Matthew (Alan Ayala), who is routinely abused by his stepfather.  He has a crush on  Claire (Devon Barnes), during high school. His love for Claire rides a fine line between persistence and obsession. And when, Matthew is jumped by her boyfriend, things turn violent.  Five years go by and Claire discovers that her high school stalker has returned for her.

Del Playa Shaun Hart Movie Poster

The film has been surrounded by controversy from the moment the filmmakers released a trailer on YouTube in 2015. There were claims made by several people, who saw the trailer, that the movie was based on college student Elliot Rodger. In 2014, Rodger killed six other students and wounded 14 others, in Isla Vista. Then, he killed himself. The controversy became so heated that a petition was created on Change.org by a former UCSB student, garnering approximately 30,000 signatures. The petition was a protest of the film. Meanwhile, major publications such as Variety and The Huffington Post reported on the controversy.

Writer/Director Shaun Hart admits that, while there may be similarities to the actual events that took place in 2013, this story is not based specifically on that incident.  “I was completely blindsided by the Elliot Rodger story – another devastating tragedy in a long lineage of mass shootings,” Hart says. “The only difference for me was that I lived on that street where Elliot’s rampage ultimately ended. ”

Del Playa Hostage Shaun Hart Still

When asked about his motivations regarding making the film, Hart said: “storytelling is powerful. Being a filmmaker, I began to put the question – why does this keep happening year after year? – into a story because I believe that’s a way that we can learn. We have to come to grips with the fact that – as a society – something is changing. There is a very real darkness descending on our country that is more frightening than any imaginary monster we can manufacture in a horror film.  That’s what this film is about.”

As part of his effort to be socially responsible, Hart has decided that a portion of the film’s profits will go to Arts for Humanity! Arts for Humanity! is a non-profit based in Santa Barbara, California. Founded in 1997, this group empowers low income at-risk youth, people with disabilities and the elderly through participatory performing and visual arts programs. They bring opportunities in the creative arts directly to marginalized community members through art programs that are provided to social service agencies through Santa Barbara County.

Terror Films Launches Award-Winning Australian Horror Film Inner Demon on Shudder!

LOS ANGELES, CA (Monday, July 10th, 2017) – Terror Films is pleased to announce that Shudder is set to release the award winning, female directed horror film, Inner Demon. The launch begins Monday, July 10! Inner Demon will be available in the US, Canada, the UK and Ireland.

Inner Demon Ursula Dabrowsky Movie Poster

Ursula Dabrowsky’s Inner Demon tells the tale of teenager Sam (Sarah Jeavons). She manages to escape, with her young sister, from a deranged serial killer couple (Kerry Anne Reid and Andreas Sobick). Unfortunately, a cabin-in-the-woods, that she hoped would be a safe house, turns out to be even more harrowing and dangerous than her initial entrapment by her captors.

Shot in Australia, Dabrowsky chose the perfect setting in the city of Adelaide. Here, a real-life string of serial killers and demented murders earned it the nickname: “the murder capital of Australia.” She also proves with this disturbingly crafted indie film that dark and twisted thoughts can flow eloquently from the mind of a female filmmaker.

Distributed by Terror Films, Inner Demon played at A Night of Horror International Film Festival. Here, it won “Best Australian Feature,” “Best Australian Director” and “Best Female Performance” for Sarah Jeavons.

Shudder is a premium streaming video service, serving both the casual and hardcore fans of horror and of suspenseful entertainment. Offering new premieres and exclusives every month, and with a wide library ranging from hard-to-find international and independent films to thrilling TV series to cult grindhouse classics to Hollywood blockbusters, Shudder has something for everyone!
