Freestyle Digital Media has acquired North American rights to the psychological gothic horror/thriller feature The Black Gloves, which sees director Lawrie Brewster (Lord of Tears) returning to the terrifying mythology of the owl-headed figure known simply as the Owlman.
The Black Gloves will be available to rent and own on DVD and North American digital HD internet, cable, and satellite platforms on May 15th, 2020.
The film tells the story of a psychologist obsessed with the disappearance of his young patient, and the menacing owl-headed figure that were plaguing her nightmares. His investigations lead him to a reclusive ballerina who, just like his patient, is convinced that she is about to die at the hands of this disturbing entity. In the bleak Scottish Highlands, he counsels his new patient under the watchful eye of her sinister ballet teacher. But he soon finds himself entangled in a ballet of paranoia, dark agendas and a maze of deadly twists and turns, as the legend of the Owlman becomes a terrifying reality.
Written by Sarah Daly, The Black Gloves features an ensemble cast including Jamie Scott Gordon (Bonejangles 2), Macarena Gómez (Dagon), and Alexandra Hulme ("Girls"). Brewster and Jennifer Tung produced.
