The “long road” to film distribution, when it comes to independent filmmaking, can sometimes feel like a transcontinental flight, and this is certainly one of those cases.
After two years of doing the rounds at some of the globe’s premiere genre film festivals, I am thrilled (thrilled, I tells ya!) to announce that THE CORRIDOR, the feature film in which I have a lead role, is now available to my fellow countrymen here in Canada (also now in the USA), through various Video On Demand services…
Available in Canada via iTunes, Sony (PS3), Xbox, Bell VOD, Cogeco, MTS, Rogers, SaskTel, Shaw VOD, Telus, VCC, Videotron, Google, RODO.
I am damn proud of this film, which can be described as THE BIG CHILL meets THE THING, so I hope that you’ll give our modestly-budgeted, overly-ambitious film, a chance. This is probably what it feels like to have a child go off to school for the first time. Be nice to my child, my slightly-twisted, sci-fi/drama hybrid child.
A quick round-up of THE CORRIDOR’s reviews, stolen from Matt Singer at IndieWire:
Ryland Aldrich, Twitch:
“A taut thriller that wraps the audience in a blanket of paranoia without falling victim to the cliches that plague so many cabin-in-the-woods horrors.”
Scott Weinberg, FEARnet:
“‘The Corridor’ may borrow themes and ideas from a handful of disparate sources, but in the end it all comes together with care and craftsmanship, and the result is one of the coolest Canadian chillers in years.”
James McCormick, The Criterion Cast:
“This is definitely a horror film that should be watched with the lights low, with a few friends that you would hopefully go away to a cabin in the woods and not kill.”
Travis Keune, We Are Movie Geeks:
“Seamlessly blends human drama with science fiction, psychological and visceral horror, and even a touch of metaphysical philosophy for one of the more mesmerizing but accessibly cerebral films I’ve seen in years.”
Cole Abaius, Film School Rejects:
“The story then goes off the deep end, but only slightly off the rails.”
Please let me know what you think of the film, if you catch it!
Update – April 9, 2012: THE CORRIDOR was iTunes’ #1 Horror film rental of the past week! I’m trying to play it cool right now, but there’s no way that’s happening.
