Black Fawn to Release “DISCOPATH” on DVD in CanadaMovies/TV,News Samuel Zimmerman
DISCOPATH, a festival hit that we previously called “a swift, satisfying salute to the slasher cinema of the ’70s and early ’80s” has found a home in its homeland of Canada. Black Fawn will bring the Canadian horror film to DVD this June.
Hitting DVD June 10th, Renaud Gauthier’s DISCOPATH sees “a timid young New Yorker in the mid-70s lead an uneventful life until he is fatefully exposed to the pulsating rhythms of a brand-new genre of music: Disco! Unable to control his murderous impulses that stem from a traumatic childhood experience, Duane Lewis transforms into a dangerous serial killer exiled to Montreal.”
DISCOPATH premiered last year at Montreal’s annual renowned Fantasia Film Festival (where Fango reviewed) where it garnered acclaim for its kooky nature. Black Fawn Distribution’s Sales Manager CF Benner says, “We went to see DISCOPATH because of the buzz it had received. We were literally blown away because it’s a very unique film experience. It’s dark, it’s funny, and you’ll find it hard to wrap your head around the fact that this film wasn’t made over 30 years ago. Renaud’s attention to detail is really quite amazing and we knew right away that we wanted horror fans everywhere to experience DISCOPATH the same way we did.”
You can pre-order DISCOPATH at Black Fawn Distribution, and see it on iTunes in Canada beginning April 29th thanks to Juice Distribution. For more, see the film’s trailer, below.
