ITN Distribution, Inc. has announced the North American release of Rolfe Kanefsky’s film Art of the Dead, a supernatural horror film that centers on a collection of paintings that unleash horror on an unsuspecting family corrupted by the seven deadly sins.
When wealthy businessman, Dylan Wilson (Lukas Hassel), purchases a collection of seven paintings from gallery auctioneer Tess Barryman (Tara Reid, American Pie), he has no idea what horrors he has unleashed for himself, his wife; Gina (Jessica Morris, TV’s "One Life to Live"), his college son; Louis (Zachary Chyz), his teenage daughter; Donna (Cynthia Aileen Strahan), and his two little kids. Only Father Mendale (Robert Donavan) knows what evils lurk inside this deadly art and the history of Dorian Wilde; the artist who made a pact with dark forces when he created these paintings that represent the seven deadly sins. Now, anyone who comes in contact with these pictures are corrupted by Pride, Lust, Gluttony, Sloth, Greed, Envy, and Wrath!
