Shoreline Entertainment has sold German-speaking European rights here to Ascot Elite on Simon Hynd's horror thriller Senseless.

Based on Stona Fitch's novel, Senseless chronicles the kidnapping and torture of a US businessman whose ordeal is streamed online as part of a reality TV show. Jason Behr stars.

The sale cements Shoreline and Ascot Elite's relationship following a deal at Sundance on horror title The Signal.

'We're thrilled to continue working with one of the premiere distributors of German-speaking territories, and look forward to our future deals,' Shoreline chief and Senseless executive producer Morris Ruskin said.

Ascot Elite's Stephan Giger negotiated the deal with Shoreline's Courtney Tatman.
