HORRORSHOW.TV ACQUIRES UK RIGHTS FOR LUCKY MCKEE'S THE WOMAN
Horror-themed VOD platform TheHorrorShow.TV is set to make a bold venture into physical distribution with its first 'all UK rights' acquisition, The Woman. The film, starring Pollyanna McIntosh (Filth, White Settlers) will be released on DVD, Blu-ray and limited edition steelbook editions on August 18, with a brand new audio commentary by director Lucky McKee, whose latest film All Cheerleaders Die receives its UK premiere at FrightFest in August.
Commenting on the VOD platform's new venture, TheHorrorShow.TV's David Hughes said, "Having celebrated our site's first birthday by uploading our 200th horror film, we are hugely excited about this new acquisition, which heralds our entry into the physical market with a lavish all-formats edition of Lucky McKee's brilliant 2011 horror film, The Woman. Of course, TheHorrorShow.TV is primarily a digital platform, but the physical side of film distribution shows no signs of slowing down, and we want to give horror fans as much choice as possible about how they consume their favourite genre."
The film's director, Lucky McKee, commented: "I am delighted The Woman has found a new home in the UK with The Horror Show.TV. With this new edition, fans will get a chance to watch the film along with me, as I have recorded a brand new commentary track within the home that inspired the story."
TheHorrorShow.TV will offer the film as a digital exclusive, and plans to include the film in its forthcoming subscription service, which will make many of the existing 200+ films available at TheHorrorShow.TV – including many digital exclusives – available to subscribers for £4.99 per month.
TheHorrorShow.TV is the first UK-based video-on-demand streaming service specialising in horror and fantasy films. Run by David Hughes and filmmaker and entrepreneur Jack Bowyer, the pay-as-you platform offers top-flight features, popular classics, cult favourites and edgy underground titles to stream or download via computers/ laptops and Android and iOS-based smartphones and tablets. Fans can also select short films from the 99p "Short Stack" feature which gives access to a selection of short horror films.
