Exclusive Cover Art Reveal: Jonas Govaert’s childhood chiller “CUB”


For fright fans frequenting the festival scene over the past year, one of the most buzzed-about international titles has been Jonas Govaert’s CUB.  The Dutch film, which earned raves out of TIFF, Fantastic Fest and Sitges last year (including our review), has been awaiting release in the US from the folks at Artsploitation Films, but for our neighbors up North, you’re in luck as FANGORIA has the first information and artwork for CUB’s Canadian DVD/Blu-ray release!

For those unfamiliar, here is the official synopsis for CUB…

Imaginative but troubled twelve-year-old Sam is ridiculed by his counsellors and fellow scouts while on a summer camping trip for thinking a mysterious feral boy lurks in the woods outside their camp site. But they will all begin to take Sam seriously when a series of ingenious booby traps start bloodily whittling down the troops numbers making it clear the boys are up against a formidable for right out of a campfire tale. In the tradition of LORD OF THE FLIES and FRIDAY THE 13TH, CUB is a thrilling horror adventure that will make you fear what’s outside your tent all over again.

CUB, which will play at the 2015 Fantasia International Film Festival this summer, will bow on DVD & Blu-ray on August 18th from Anchor Bay Entertainment Canada and Raven Banner Entertainment. Bonus features include Deleted Scenes, SFX Reel, and Blu-ray exclusive features include Govaerts’ OF CATS AND WOMAN short film as well as the Deadsets music video “One Hour.” You can check out FANGORIA’s exclusive cover art below, and look out for more on CUB here at FANGORIA.com.
