Samuel Goldwyn Films Acquires Festival Indie ‘Head Count’ - Bloody Disgusting
Samuel Goldwyn Films has acquired North American rights to Head Count, the horror film from Elle Callahan that premiered at last year’s Los Angeles Film Festival, where the pic won a special jury prize for actor Ashleigh Morghan, reports Deadline. It will now hit theaters and digital on June 14.
The script from Michael Nader centers on Evan (Isaac W. Jay) who joins a group of teens on a getaway in Joshua Tree. While exchanging ghost stories around the campfire, Evan reads aloud a mysterious chant from a website. From that moment, someone — or something — is among them. As unsettling, inexplicable events become more frequent, Evan realizes this summoned shape-shifting creature is targeting them to fulfill a deadly ritual.
