IFC Midnight Picks Up U.S. Rights to Sci-fi Thriller 'The Corridor'
IFC Midnight has acquired U.S. rights to the sci-fi thriller The Corridor. Written by Josh MacDonald, the film is the directorial debut of Evan Kelly.
Stephen Chambers, James Gilbert and David Patrick Flemming star in the story of a man still reeling a year after his mother's death when his friends arrange for a weekend getaway to scatter her ashes at her old country house. When they discover something otherworldly in the woods, things get very bizarre and increasingly violent.
Craig Cameron and Mike Masters produced the project, which acquired funding from Telefilm Canada and Nova Scotia Film.
"The Corridor is a crafty and fun horror sci-fi thriller that we think is a perfect addition to our IFC Midnight slate," said Sundance Selects/IFC Films president Jonathan Sehring.
Sundance Selects/IFC Films exec Jeff Deutchman negotiated the deal with Nate Bolotin of XYZ Films on behalf of the filmmakers.
A sister division to IFC Films and Sundance Selects, IFC Midnight has recently released The Human Centipede (First Sequence), Vengeance and Super. Upcoming releases include The Incident and Penumbra.
