Yellow Veil Pictures is bringing some excellent genre offerings to Cannes...
...KHC has just learned that Yellow Veil Pictures has acquired world sales rights to Jordan Graham’s Sator and English-Speaking Territories for The Bloodhound from director Patrick Picard!
In The Bloodhound, a modern-set horror/thriller loosely based on Edgar Allen Poe’s famed gothic story, The Fall of The House of Usher:
"Young, dispossessed Francis agrees to take care of a wealthy childhood friend who has fallen ill, but soon finds himself trapped in an isolated world and fearful of the man's phantasmic twin sister who roams the halls. A volatile test of wills ensues between the two men, and a treasonous crime might be the only way out."
The film stars Liam Aiken, Joe Adler and Annalise Basso.
It was produced by Love & Death Productions' Thomas R. Burke and Leal Naim (The Endless) as well as Alex Don and Jason Don (Ladyworld).
In Sator, which made its world premiere in Montreal at the Fantasia International Film Festival:
"The chilling feature invites the director’s real-life grandmother, now passed, in front of the lens to recount her history of interactions with the being known only as Sator."
Said Yellow Veil Pictures co-founder Hugues Barbier, ”Multi-talented Autor Jordan Graham crafted a unique and very personal piece of cinema, blending some of the best rural folk tales with exceedingly atmospheric and haunting visuals. 'Sator' proves once more that the artistry of cinema is a complex and unpredictable alchemy, and exactly what we love to support at Yellow Veil Pictures. Very excited to work with Jordan to bring his dazzling and singular vision to the Marché du Film Online."
Yellow Veil will introduce both films to buyers this week at Marche Du Film Online as part of their slate.
