Toronto-based Raven Banner has closed a raft of deals on Jeremy Garner’s elevated zombie film The Battery in the days running up to the EFM.

Shout! Factory will distribute in the US while Raven Banner/Anchor Bay will handle the spring release on 28 screens in Canada as part of its Sinister Canada series.

Elsewhere, deals closed in the UK (Metrodome), France (Zylo), Australia and New Zealand (Accent) and Germany (Meteor).  

Adam Cronheim and Christian Stella produced the story of two former baseball players whose personalities clash as they traverse the rural back roads of a post-plague New England teeming with the undead.
