ARCHSTONE DISTRIBUTION AND AMC THEATRES SHIFT RELEASE OF “L.A. SLASHER” IN NORTH AMERICA TO JUNE 26, 2015
LOS ANGELES, CA (May 29, 2015) – Archstone Distribution has announced that the horror-dark comedy feature L.A. Slasher, directed by Martin Owen and produced by Jeffrey Wright and Daniel Sollinger, will receive a North American theatrical release starting June 26 in select AMC Theatres.
“With growing public interest, AMC is expanding the release of the film,” L.A. Slasher Executive Producer Abigail Wright stated. “The number of cities are growing, and thus far include Los Angeles, Denver, Miami, Atlanta and Austin, with more to be announced soon.”
L.A. Slasher Producer Daniel Sollinger remarked, “My team and I are thrilled to be working with Archstone and AMC, as they have a steady track record for bringing high quality films to audiences worldwide. We are very proud to be on their roster.”
With an all-star cast that includes Mischa Barton, Dave Bautista, Danny Trejo, Drake Bell, Eric Roberts, Brooke Hogan, Abigail Wright, Elizabeth Morris and Andy Dick (in his comeback
vehicle), L.A. Slasher is a social satire about reality TV and the glorification of people who are famous for simply being famous. Exploring why it has become acceptable to become an influential star based on no merit or talent, the story follows the titular Slasher character as he systematically abducts these “stars,” much to the joy of the online public who view his exploits via social media, and who subsequently and enthusiastically support his mantra of ‘Death To Reality TV’.
Already a recipient of multiple awards on the film festival circuit, L.A. Slasher is being described as, “A ‘meta’ morality tale for the Age of Twitter” (via ShockTillYouDrop.com) and, “A visual juggernaut” (via TrulyDisturbing.com).
