Last week's MIFED saw Senator International strike its first deals on films from the genre-film label recently launched with Sam Raimi and Rob Tappert.

On Boogeyman, it licensed French rights to Hachette Filipacchi Films (formerly known as Film Office) for France, Manga for Spain, Village Roadshow for Australia, Singapore and Greece, Belga for Benelux, LNK Films for Portugal, Nordisk for Scandinavia, Ivision for South Korea, Nontanund for Thailand, Gulf Film for the Middle East, Golden Screen for Hong Kong and Malaysia, Pioneer for The Philippines, ProVision for ex-Yugoslavia, Mediavizion for Turkey.

The "classic horror" film, which is expected to go into production next March and is fully financed by Senator International, is written by first-timer Eric Kripke.

Klockworx' comedy by Vincenzo Natali, Nothing, was sold to Metropolitan Filmexport for France, Manga in Spain, LNK for Portugal, Nontanund for Thailand, Audiovisual for Greece, Gulf Film for the Middle East and Pro Vision for ex-Yugoslavia. Klockworx retained Japanese rights.
