A couple of years a go I was extremely fortunate to be one of the lucky ones to check out Scott Schirmer’s coming of age horror flick Found. From the moment I got done watching the film, that was all I could think of. It has left a lasting impression and it’s one that I won’t forget for a very long time.
So, today comes the awesome news via our friends over at Fangoria, that The October People has picked up Scott Schirmer’s Found for U.S. distribution. At this time we have no further details on the release, but they plan to release the film to the widest possible audience.
I’m sure they will do the film justice, and I urge you guys to go check this one out once it is released if you haven’t seen it on the festival circuit already.
The film stars Gavin Brown, Ethan Philbeck, Phyllis Munro, Louie Lawless, and Alex Kogin.
Synopsis: Marty is the ideal fifth grader. He gets good grades, listens to his teachers, and doesn’t start trouble in class. But a darkness is beginning to fall over Marty’s life. The kids at school won’t stop picking on him, his parents just don’t seem to understand him, and now Marty must grapple with a terrible secret that threatens to destroy life as he knows it — his big brother is a serial killer! Brotherly love is put to the ultimate test in this emotional coming-of-age story that descends into full-blown horror.
You’ve heard what I think of the film, now let’s hear what you guys think?
