The Canadian postapocalyptic chiller THE COLLAPSED has
already nabbed distribution on home turf from Anchor Bay, and now
director/co-writer Justin McConnell has gotten in touch with the scoop on a deal
for the U.S.
McConnell reveals to Fango that Otter Creek Motion Pictures
will release THE COLLAPSED February 28 (the same day as the Canadian debut) on
DVD and VOD. Special features on the disc will include a pair of audio
commentaries, a feature-length behind-the-scenes documentary, exclusive
interviews and more. “I’m extremely excited that the film is going to have a
chance for so many to see it worldwide,” McConnell tells Fango. “To have it
available through such solid distribution partners is a bit of a dream come
true, and I have nothing but gratitude for the wonderful team around me during
every step of this process—from cast, to crew, to agents and distributors. We
continue to have a great festival run, and I hope people choose to check the
film out for themselves when it’s available everywhere.”
THE COLLAPSED follows the Weaver family as they attempt to
make their way across a plague-ravaged countryside to safety, threatened by
both unseen, deadly presences in the woods around them and other, more desperate
people. Check out the trailer below and the movie’s official website here; see our review here and look for a story on THE COLLAPSED in our Canada-centic issue #309, on sale
