‘The Outwaters’ – SCREAMBOX Just Acquired One of the Scariest Movies of the Year! – Bloody Disgusting

Huge, huge, huge news today as were excited to announce that Cinedigm, Bloody Disgusting, and SCREAMBOX have teamed to acquire all North American rights to Robbie Banfitchs haunting and hellish horror nightmare, The Outwaters!

The news was first reported by Variety this afternoon.

The visceral, chaotic, and disorienting horror film is hands down one of the scariest films of the year. Nightmarish Conjurings noted it was a rare gift in horror and something [viewers] havent seen before, while our very own Meagan Navarro called it a singular, experimental descent into depravity and gory chaos.

In fact, DailyDeadcalls it a terrifying, suffocating viewing experience, whileiHORRORsays its on track to become the next cult horror movie, adding that its the most disturbing movie of the year.

A throwback to the early days of the found-footage genre, Cinedigm plans to release The Outwaters in theaters early next year followed by an exclusive launch on its horror streaming service SCREAMBOX, which is powered by your pals at Bloody Disgusting.

Written and directed by Robbie Banfitch, The Outwaters takes viewers off the beaten path and into their own nightmares. The film plays out over three memory cards found in a sun-drenched section of the Mojave Desert. The footage within is that of a foursome, who set out to make a music video while camping, led by a charismatic LA filmmaker. Their trip starts out uneventful, though their peace is occasionally disrupted by unexplained sounds, vibrations, and unnatural animal behavior. Then one night everything changes, sending the foursome on a mind-bending trip through terror.

During its festival run, the film took home the Jury Prize for Best Feature at the Unnamed Footage Festival. The film also received rave reviews from Panic Fest, The New Jersey Film Festival, Unnamed Footage Festival and the Chattanooga Film Festival, placing The Outwaters at the top of horror fans must watch lists. This momentum has made it one of the most anticipated films at the upcoming Dead of Night Film Festival, in Liverpool this October.

This is one of the scariest films I have ever seen, said Brad Miska, Managing Director of Bloody Disgusting. Its rare you find something so haunting and raw as The Outwaters. It will make you think twice about going outside again after watching it.

My whole life Ive dreamed of making a scary movie, said Banfitch of his feature debut. Thanks to friends, family, and years of hard work, the daydreams were made tangible. We filmed in the dark and dust and along the sand-swept highways of the Mojave. We screamed and laughed and ran under dim desert moons with rattlesnakes, wild burros, bats and fire ants. That I will have the opportunity to share our work with filmgoers is a gift, and I hope everyone watches with the lights off. Films are dreams, even if theyre born of nightmares.

The Outwaters stars Angela Basolis, Michelle May, Scott Schamell and Banfitch, and features original music by Salem Belladonna. The film was produced by Beau J. Genot and Banfitch with Robert Abramoff serving as the executive producer.

The deal was negotiated by Beau J. Genot of 5100 Films and Brandon Hill, Acquisitions Manager, on behalf of Cinedigm.
