Following is World Premiere at the Overlook Film Festival, and prior to its screening at this month's Cinepocalypse Film Fest, RLJE Films has acquired the highly anticipated horror film Satanic Panic, the latest in the line-up from the recently re-launched Fangoria.
The film will be released in theaters and on VOD and Digital HD on September 6th, 2019.
In Satanic Panic, “Times are tough for Sam. Already a cancer survivor at twenty-two, she seeks out a meager existence delivering pizza for minimum wage—and minimum tips—while dealing with an exploitative boss and obnoxious coworkers. When the final delivery of the night promises to take her to a wealthy neighborhood with the chance of a healthy tip, she takes the opportunity to make up for an unprofitable shift. What begins as a quest for cash ends up as a quest for survival, though, when it turns out her customers aren’t who she’s used to delivering to. Instead, they’re a Satanic cult of a very different color: high-society elites for whom worshipping the Dark Lord coexists with country clubs and casseroles.“
Based on a story by Grady Hendrix (Mohawk) and Ted Geoghegan (We Are Still Here), the film was written by Hendrix and directed by Chelsea Stardust (Hulu’s “Into the Dark”).
Satanic Panic stars Hayley Griffith (The Drew), Ruby Modine (Happy Death Day), Michael Polish (Before I Wake), Jerry O’Connell (“Billions”) and Rebecca Romijn (X-Men Franchise).
“We could not be more excited to be releasing the instant classic, SATANIC PANIC,” said Mark Ward, Chief Acquisitions Officer of RLJE Films. “Chelsea Stardust is a filmmaker on the rise and we know audiences will line up to see this completely original and wild film from FANGORIA.”
Charles Dorfman and David Gilbery are executive producers for Media Finance Capital. Phil Nobile Jr. (Horror Noire) and Danielle Cox (The Standoff at Sparrow Creek) are executive producers for Fangoria.
