Uncork’d Entertainment has inked North American V.O.D., digital and home entertainment rights to the rough and rugged horror drama EXIT TO HELL (previously titled Sickle). EXIT TO HELL was written, directed and produced by Robert Conway and Funhouse Features producers David Friedman, Justin Anderson and Executive Producer Anthony Casanova. EXIT TO HELL is expected on VOD in early November and DVD in early 2014. Uncork’d Entertainment’s Keith Leopard made today’s announcement.
“Robert Conway and his producers truly understand the depth and cinematic history of this genre,” remarked Leopard, “and it’s all on the screen. Having iconic actor Kane Hodder adds another layer to this film that I’m certain will thrill a huge audience throughout the U.S. and Canada”
“Speaking for all of us here at Funhouse, we are very excited to be releasing EXIT TO HELL through Uncork’d Entertainment,” added Conway. “Much has changed in the world of home video distribution and Keith understands the shifting marketplace. The company embraces streaming VOD services such as iTunes and Xbox as well as the kiosk vendors who have largely replaced the traditional brick and mortar outlets. To put it simply, we know that our film is in good hands and we expect that EXIT TO HELL is merely the first of many titles we will release through Uncork’d.”
After robbing a mafia run strip club, a naïve group of thugs head for the border to enjoy their bounty. But when they enter the remote and wind-swept town of Redstone, they gruesomely discover that revenge is all in how you slice it. Kane Hodder (Friday the 13th, Hatchet) takes the title role as Sheriff Slade Sickle, a man with an abiding appetite for justice! EXIT TO HELL co-stars Tiffany Shepis (Nightmare Man, Dark Reel) and Rena Riffel (Showgirls, Mulholland Dr.) in this carnage-filled tribute to American Grindhouse cinema.
