There’s good F-ing news for fans of British horror, as a
pair of UK productions are heading for Stateside disc and video-on-demand, one
of them receiving a title change.
Screen Media Films gave Fango the exclusive word that it
will release Ryan Andrews’ ELFIE HOPKINS: CANNIBAL HUNTER (pictured) and
Johannes Roberts’ F, the latter under the new moniker THE EXPELLED, on its Screen Media Darkside label. ELFIE
HOPKINS, with Jaime Winstone in the title role of a wannabe teen detective who
finds out the hungry secret of a new family in town, also stars her dad Ray
Winstone, Kimberley Nixon, HELLBOY’s Rupert Evans, Steven Mackintosh, Kate
Magowan and CITADEL’s Aneurin Barnard, and hits VOD February 5 and DVD (see exclusive cover art below) March 5.
“I’m thrilled that Elfie will make her debut Stateside this coming spring,”
producer Jonathan Sothcott tells us. “Ryan Andrews gave the film such a
distinct flavor that distinguishes it from any British horror film out there,
and directed a stellar cast led by Jaime Winstone in her signature role. We’re
all delighted that genre specialists Screen Media Films have picked it up and
can’t wait to work with them on the release.”
THE EXPELLED is an exercise in hoodie horror, in which a
teacher (David Schofield) and his resentful daughter (Eliza Bennett) are
terrorized after hours at his school by a gang of faceless, murderous youths.
It arrives on VOD and DVD April 9. Special features on both are still being
finalized; see the trailers for ’em below and stay tuned for further details.
