Indie Distributor 24 Frames To Launch New Extreme Label With Asian Horror Film “Alone”
LOS ANGELES, CA, June 19, 2007 -- Independent distributor 24 frames® announced today that it acquired at Cannes all North American rights and remake rights to the Asian Horror Film “ALONE” for their 24 frames extreme label. This is the 2nd horror film from the directing duo Pisanthanakun and Wongpoom who made the smash hit “Shutter,” now undergoing a Hollywood remake by Twentieth Century Fox and Vertigo Entertainment.
The brilliant and terrifying horror film “ALONE” tells the story of Pim who moved from Thailand to Korea to escape the guilt of being the surviving half of a conjoined twin. Flashbacks to Pim’s childhood show how the bittersweet relationship with her sister, and their commitment to stay together forever, transforms into a repressive bond that ultimately leads to separation. After she returns to visit her dying mother, the spirit of her dead sister angrily thrusts herself into Pim’s life.
“The directors know the best thrillers and horror are built on common, identifiable themes such as sibling rivalry, romantic jealousy and family guilt,” says 24 frames President Ludo Cremers. “The dark, psycho thriller elements recall the best of Hitchcock and DePalma.”
“This creepy film with its strong story and cast is easily the best reviewed horror film of 2007”, says Director of Acquisitions Jesús di Sica. “We look forward to scaring the heck out of American audiences with this compelling find.”
“’ALONE,’ a cut above the wave of horror titles released in recent years, very much represents what our new label 24 frames extreme is all about: high impact, memorable, edge of your seat thrillers and horror films from around the world,” says Ludo Cremers. “We’ll thrill you into a good time you won’t soon forget.”
24 frames®, a newly established independent distributor, introduces compelling international films to the North American Market. In addition to releasing Thriller and Horror titles under the 24 frames extreme label, the company will launch additional labels for the Latin and Gay & Lesbian markets. Its President Ludo Cremers, former SVP of International Marketing for Buena Vista Home Entertainment, founded 24 frames. Sales and Acquisitions is headed up by Jesús di Sica, formerly responsible for sales at Miravista, Buena Vista International’s Latin American co-production label.
