XLrator & IndustryWorks Team For New Thriller/Genre Slate!Movies/TV,News Ken W. Hanley
Out of all the independent distributors in the horror world at the moment, XLrator Media is one that continues to surpass expectations around every corner. From FOUND to POKER NIGHT to SUN CHOKE, XLrator has done a hell of a job finding fun and demented fright fare from some really unique filmmakers. Yet even beyond their horror work, XLrator does a solid job at crafting their brand, allowing both their “Macabre” and “Turbo” brands to reach separate genre audiences while offering enough edge in each to offer crossover appeal. So with that in mind, fans of action and horror will be excited to hear that XLrator is teaming up with IndustryWorks Studio- the Canadian production entity responsible for AMERICAN MARY- to co-produce and release a trio of upcoming thrillers!
The two companies, who recently teamed for the road rage horror/thriller WRECKER, will kick-off this venture with RESIDUE, a supernatural thriller from director Rusty Nixon (CANDILAND) that stars Taylor Hickson (DEADPOOL), Matt Frewer (DAWN OF THE DEAD ’04), Costas Mandylor (SAW III), Elysia Rotaru (ARROW), and James Clayton (FRINGE). RESIDUE will be hitting select theaters and VOD in early 2017, and it will be followed by gaming-gone-wrong thriller PLAYTIME from WRECKER filmmaker Michael Bafaro as well as the sci-fi action thriller FUSE.
