Summer Horror Movie Head Count Is The Thing Meets It Follows - MovieWeb
Elle Callahan's The Thing meets It Follows horror flick Head Count made my list of upcoming fright flicks to keep an eye on last year when it premiered at the Los Angeles Film Festival to solid reviews. Hell, even lead actress Ashleigh Morghan snagged a win on a special jury prize for her performance. Not bad, eh? Well, if you're as intrigued as I am about this movie, then you'll be pleased as spiked-punch to hear today we've learned that we won't have to wait too much longer to check it out. Samuel Goldwyn Films has acquired North American rights to the motion picture and has plans set in motion to unleash the movie into a theater near you and on digital this June. Sweet.
Samuel Goldwyn's Miles Fineburg, who repped the deal with Derek Kigongo at Paradigm on behalf of the filmmakers, said in a recent statement.
"We were struck by the unique use of popular horror influences like The Thingand It Follows, melded with classic urban legends such as Bloody Mary. Elle Callahan has shown herself to be a smart new voice in the horror space, and we are excited to help bring it to audiences."
