Available On Demand and In-Theaters on October 11, 2013
LOS ANGELES (September 11, 2013) â€“ Archstone Distribution acquires the worldwide rights to director Anthony DiBlasiâ€™s (The Midnight Meat Train, Dread) latest horror/thriller, CASSADAGA, opening day-and-date in theaters and On Demand Oct. 11. CASSADAGA marks Archstoneâ€™s second digital release with distributor Starz Digital Media. Together they released the horror/thriller A Resurrection, starring Mischa Barton, Devon Sawa and Michael Clarke Duncan, in July.â€
CASSADAGA stars Kelen Coleman (FOXâ€™s â€œThe Mindy Project,â€ Children of the Corn: Genesis) and Kevin Alejandro (HBOâ€™s â€œTrue Blood,â€ CBSâ€™s â€œGolden Boyâ€) and will be available for download across digital providers including iTunes and Xbox, and On Demand across DIRECTV, DISH Network and select cable providers. The announcement was made today by Archstone Distributionâ€™s Scott Martin.
“CASSADAGA is filled with twists and turns that will keep audiences at the edge of their seats,” says Martin. “Horror fans will appreciate this movie, and it will surely build a following.”
CASSADAGA tells the story of Lily Morel (Kelen Coleman), a post-lingually deaf artist, who participates in a sÃ©ance in the spiritualist community of Cassadaga. But instead of getting closure with her recently departed sister, Lily contacts the vengeful ghost of a murdered woman. As the ghost becomes increasingly angry and violent, Lily rushes to unravel the mysterious circumstances surrounding the womanâ€™s death â€“ a task that will bring her face-to-face with a sadistic serial killer who turns his victims into human marionette dolls.
CASSADAGA is produced and written by Scott Poiley and Bruce Wood, and co-stars Louise Fletcher (Showtimeâ€™s â€œShameless,â€ The Last Sin Eater), Rus Blackwell and Lucas Beck. The deal was negotiated by Archstone Distributionâ€™s Brady Bowen and Scott Poiley on behalf of the filmmakers.
