Dark Sky Films has acquired all US rights to supernatural horror Hosts, which MPI Media Group will introduce to buyers at the Cannes virtual market next week.
The Odin’s Light and Dark Fable Media co-production centres on a couple who unwittingly become possessed by a malicious entity on Christmas Eve and terrorise a family throughout the night.
The demonic possessions mark the onset of a global pandemic of possession that runs loved ones against each other.
Samantha Loxley (Election Night, Skin Deep), Neal Ward (Two Graves, To Dream), Nadia Lamin (Homeless Ashes, Nefarious), Frank Jakeman (Game Of Thrones), and Lee Hunter (Vikings) star.
Writer/directors Richard Oakes and Adam Leader make their feature directorial debut on Hosts, which Dark Sky plans to release in the US in late 2020.
MPI Media vice-president of sales and acquisitions Nicola Goelzhaeuser and Giles Edwards negotiated the deal for Dark Sky and parent company MPI Media Group.
