High Point has confirmed the first acquisitions of Ed Boase’s urban myth-inspired horror, The Mirror.
Film Movement has acquired The Mirror for North America and Matchbox Films has taken the film for the UK and Australia/New Zealand.
The Frightfest pick is about friends who buy a supposedly haunted mirror on eBay.
The Mirror is already on release on DVD and on-demand through Matchbox Films in the UK, playing on Blinkbox, FilmFlex and iTunes Horror.
In Australia, the film is premiering on November 22 at Monsterfest, and is scheduled to come out on Bigpond and Quickflix, and iTunes, in February 2015.
The US release through Film Movement is set for late January, with its Netflix release to follow in April.
“The festival roll-out and buzz among horror fans is beginning to pay off,” said High Point COO Julie Delaney who negotiated the deals.
“Both Film Movement and Matchbox Films are excellent distributors who understand the genre completely and we’re delighted to be working with them.”
A Starline Entertainment presentation, the film stars Jemma Dallender, Joshua Dickinson and Nate Fallows.
The Mirror was written, directed and produced by Ed Boase for Magma Pictures alongside producers Robert Taylor for The Artists’ Partnership and Hamish Moseley.
