LA-based production and international sales outfit Dream Entertainment has completed a raft of sales on Michael Davis' horror film Monster Man, which completed production last month.

Gaga has picked up rights for Japan, Magna Pacific for Australia, Kinowelt for Germany, Gussi for Mexico, Scanbox for Scandinavia and Village Roadshow for Greece.

In other territories, Les Films de L'Elysee has acquired rights for Benelux, Warner Newmetro for South Africa, Mediacorp for Singapore, Right Beyond for Thailand, PT Amero for Indonesia, ECS for the Middle East and Pioneer for the Philippines.

Dream co-produced the film with Lions Gate Films, which will distribute in North America. Dream chairman and chief executive officer Ehud Bleiberg and president Yitzhak Ginsberg are producing with Larry Rattner.

The story centres on a road trip by a pair of university friends and their mysterious hitchhiker that goes awry when a massive black truck begins to follow them.

Eric Jungmann (Not Another Teen Movie) and Justin Urich (Nutty Professor II) star. Director Davis' credits include Eight Days A Week and Girl Fever.

'Monster Man is tongue-in-cheek horror with tremendous audience appeal, and as our sales are bearing out, we really succeeded in doing something different with the genre,' Bleiberg said.

The film will screen at the Stiges International Film Festival, the world's leading horror and fantasy event that takes place at the end of November.
