NEW INDIE HORROR FILM RELEASES ON VOD JULY 1, 2014 BY GRAVITAS VENTURES
Los Angeles (June 25, 2014) – Horror fans head to a haunted prison for the award-winning indie horror-thriller HAUNTING OF CELLBLOCK 11, available nationally on cable and internet VOD from leading independent film distributor, Gravitas Ventures beginning July 1, 2014.
"A unique and modern take on the classic haunting story, director Andrew P. Jones handles scares with chilling aplomb. We're very excited to be able to share HAUNTING OF CELLBLOCK 11 with a wide audience," explains Mia Bruno, Senior Manager of Acquisitions for Gravitas Ventures.
HAUNTING OF CELLBLOCK 11 follows a group of ghost hunters who must up their game to compete in the competitive world of paranormal TV shows. Their thirst for ratings leads them to a truly haunted prison with a grisly past that proves to be more than they bargained for.
The paranormal chiller comes from the multi-talented husband and wife production team, Andrew P. Jones and Linara Washington, under their Picture Palace Films banner. Along with co-producing the film, Jones, directed, wrote, and scored the feature, which stars Washington (Killing Them Softly). The ghost hunting cast also includes: Jeffrey S.S. Johnson (Criminal Minds, Bones), Charley Koontz (Community), John Zderko (The Mentalist) and genre icon Dee Wallace (E.T., Cujo, The Howling), as the demanding TV executive who pushes the team for better ratings, or face cancellation.
Originally titled APPARITIONAL, the frightening flick earned ‘Best Horror Film’ at the 2013 Boston Terror ‘Thon and is already receiving rave reviews from genre experts. Horror enthusiasts will appreciate Jones’ attention to detail, filming the project at the infamously haunted Missouri State Penitentiary, known as "the bloodiest 47 acres" for being the site of many murders, riots, and deaths, which was decommissioned in 2004.
Jones has a proven track record for creating strong narrative driven films, as evidenced by his highly regarded, award-winning Depression era drama, “Kings of the Evening.” Switching gears to the horror arena, Jones also teamed with Oscar winning special effects makeup artist, Barney Burman to produce as well as provide the film's makeup effects.
