Exclusive Stills; Home Media News: Romain Basset’s “HORSEHEAD”Movies/TV,News Ken W. Hanley
If you’re a loyal FANGORIA reader, you may be familiar with Romain Basset’s freaky French fright flick HORSEHEAD, which premiered at last year’s FANTASTIC FEST. Since then, the film has been acquired by Artsploitation for U.S. release, and today, FANGORIA has learned that HORSEHEAD will be given the star treatment via Black Fawn Distribution, who have announced they’re handling HORSEHEAD’s Canadian home media later this year, and have given FANGORIA some exclusive stills from the film to go with it!
For those unfamiliar, here’s the official synopsis for HORSEHEAD:
Plagued by recurring nightmares since childhood, Jessica has begun studying the psychophysiology of dreams in an attempt to understand their meaning. When her Grandmother dies, Jessica returns to her family home in the French countryside, where she receives a muted reception from her icy Mother. After a difficult first night, Jessica becomes feverish and uses her bedridden state to practice the art of lucid dreaming. Jessica soon learns that her Grandmother had been obsessed with the same evil apparition that now haunts her own nightmares. As Jessica’s skills as a lucid dreamer improve, she discovers that dark secrets run deep in her bloodline and that they all lead to the monstrous Horsehead.
Black Fawn will be releasing HORSEHEAD on DVD, Digital HD and limited edition Blu-ray in Canada on May 5th, 2015. The 2-disc limited edition Blu-ray release will include a 1080p transfer of the film, a copy of the film’s haunting soundtrack, an hour-long behind-the-scenes documentary featuring cast and crew interviews, filmmaker’s commentary, and the original uncensored trailer.
“A big part of our company is talking to horror fans on the ground and finding out what they want to see,” says Black Fawn sales manager CF Benner. “What we kept hearing was that a lot of people wanted Blu-ray and we felt that HORSEHEAD was a perfect fit for that format. Quite frankly, it’s a visually stunning film that deserves to be added to any horror fans’ collection.”
