W2 Media will co-finance and distribute The Theatre Bizarre 2, the sequel to Severin Films and Mataluna Productions’ horror anthology.

The sales, finance and distribution company is releasing The Theatre Bizarre in the US in January 2012 and plans to release the sequel a year later.

W2 Media is also handling worldwide sales for both films.

The Theatre Bizarre is a modern horror anthology inspired by the over-the-top shocks of Paris’ early 20th century Theatre du Grand Guignol, featuring films by directors Douglas Buck, Buddy Giovinazzo, David Gregory, Karim Hussain, Jeremy Kasten, Tom Savini & Richard Stanley.
