FANGORIA Presents acquires Spanish shocker “OMNIVORES”
FANGORIA Presents has acquired writer/director Óscar Rojo’s Spanish cannibalism shocker OMNIVORES for U.S. distribution, with Video on Demand play slated to begin everywhere on October 1. Shot in Madrid, OMNIVORES follows a food critic who goes undercover at a secret society that serves people on the menu (see below for more detailed synopsis).
“This is FANGORIA Presents’ first venture into foreign language horror, and a better choice could not be found than with the stylish, slick, scary and well-acted OMNIVORES,” says Meyer Shwarzstein, president of Brainstorm Media and FANGORIA Presents’ partner. “FANGORIA Presents is looking for the most frightening and original horror films from around the world, and OMNIVORES represents the latest step in bringing the best fright flicks to our ardent fans and the general public via Video on Demand and across multiple platforms.”
“With our previous distribution partner, FANGORIA had a huge success releasing the Spanish horror films FRAGILE from [REC] originator Jaume Balaguero and Elio Quiroga’s THE HAUNTING in 2010,” says FANGORIA president Thomas DeFeo. “Spain has served as a major hotbed for horror in recent years, and OMNIVORES continues this trend of classy, nicely-produced films showcasing skin-crawling suspense and graphic chills.”
