Zombies On Demand!
We’ve reported on the Norwegian Nazi Zombie movie Dead Snow a couple of times in the past, but chances are that most of you (myself included) haven’t had a chance to see the movie. Unless you were lucky enough to go to Sundance, this is probably the case.
That’s about to change.
IFC has the distribution rights to Dead Snow and is releasing it as a part of their IFC In Theaters program, which showcases indie films in limited engagements in major markets like New York and Los Angeles, while simultaneously making the films available for on-demand viewing on your television. Ain’t technology grand?
This is from the press release, which you can read in its entirety at Cinema Blend:
This Spring/Summer, IFC Films will be releasing two highly anticipated horror films via its IFC in Theaters platform which brings acclaimed independent movies to on demand viewers in more than 50 million homes across the country the same week they premiere as an exclusive engagement in New York and/or Los Angeles. The films are:
* PONTYPOOL (May 29th) — 2008 Toronto Film Festival favorite directed by Bruce McDonald
* DEAD SNOW (June 12th) — a thrilling Norwegian horror-comedy about a group of medical students on a holiday who must make it through the night when they are attacked by Nazi-zombies; direct from its world premiere at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival.
That’s right. Not only is Dead Snow going to be available for us, but Pontypool which I reported on yesterday will be showing as well.
H0pefully you’ve got IFC In Theaters in your area. If not, there’s always DVD.
