FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

XLRATOR MEDIA BRINGS HOME FESTIVAL WINNER “FOUND” FOR NORTH AMERICAN DISTRIBUTION

LOS ANGELES (May 6, 2014) – XLrator Media has acquired North American distribution rights to the award-winning horror film FOUND by first-time director Scott Schirmer. The film has played more than 40 horror film festivals across the globe where it won 15 Best Feature Film awards and multiple Best Actor awards for both of its two young stars, Gavin Brown and Ethan Philbeck.  XLrator Media will release the film on August 15, 2014 in theaters, VOD and iTunes on its acclaimed “MACABRE” genre label.

FOUND is a profoundly shocking and moving horror vision from a talented new director working outside the Hollywood system. The film has been endorsed by genre icons Elvira ‘Mistress of the Dark,’ Sybil Danning and Joe Bob Briggs and has created a sensation wherever it has played,” said XLrator Media president Mike Radiloff.

FOUND was produced by Leya Taylor and Damien Wesner. It is based on the novel by Todd Rigney, who co-wrote the screenplay with Schirmer.

Marty (Gavin Brown) is the ideal fifth grader. He gets good grades, listens to his teachers, and doesn’t start trouble in class. But a darkness is beginning to fall over Marty’s life. The kids at school won’t stop picking on him, his parents just don’t seem to understand him, and now Marty must grapple with a terrible secret that threatens to destroy life as he knows it — his big brother (Ethan Philbeck) is a serial killer! Brotherly love is put to the ultimate test in this emotional coming-of-age story that descends into full-blown horror.

The deal was negotiated by Mike Radiloff and Barry Gordon on behalf of XLrator Media and Matt Medisch of The October People on behalf of the filmmakers.
