Available On Demand and In-Theaters on October 11, 2013
CASSADAGA stars Kelen Coleman (FOX’s “The Mindy Project,” Children of the Corn: Genesis) and Kevin Alejandro (HBO’s “True Blood,” CBS’s “Golden Boy”) and will be available for download across digital providers including iTunes and Xbox, and On Demand across DIRECTV, DISH Network and select cable providers. The announcement was made today by Archstone Distribution’s Scott Martin.
“CASSADAGA is filled with twists and turns that will keep audiences at the edge of their seats,” says Martin. “Horror fans will appreciate this movie, and it will surely build a following.”
CASSADAGA tells the story of Lily Morel (Kelen Coleman), a post-lingually deaf artist, who participates in a séance in the spiritualist community of Cassadaga. But instead of getting closure with her recently departed sister, Lily contacts the vengeful ghost of a murdered woman. As the ghost becomes increasingly angry and violent, Lily rushes to unravel the mysterious circumstances surrounding the woman’s death – a task that will bring her face-to-face with a sadistic serial killer who turns his victims into human marionette dolls.
CASSADAGA is produced and written by Scott Poiley and Bruce Wood, and co-stars Louise Fletcher (Showtime’s “Shameless,” The Last Sin Eater), Rus Blackwell and Lucas Beck. The deal was negotiated by Archstone Distribution’s Brady Bowen and Scott Poiley on behalf of the filmmakers.
