The indie horror film The Nursery has officially signed a distribution deal with respected genre distributor Uncork’d Entertainment. The deal, which makes Uncork’d both the North American distributor and international sales agent for The Nursery, was finalized this week. The Nursery is expected to be released in late spring or early summer of 2018.
“Uncork’d is very excited to pick up The Nursery and get it out there for horror fans to see,” said Keith Leopard, President of Uncork’d Entertainment. “It’s a great, old-school style horror flick that genre fans are really going to enjoy.”
The Nursery’s Executive Producers Glenn Chung, Chris Micklos, and Jay Sapiro said they were extremely proud to be partnering with Uncork’d Entertainment, which has been a leader in independent horror for nearly a decade.
“Uncork’d is a terrific horror distributor with an outstanding reputation, and we are excited that they will be helping us get the film out there and build on our already robust fan following,” the three said in a joint statement.
The Nursery has made fan outreach and engagement a priority during development and production of the film, using social media to share production updates and behind-the-scenes photos, exclusive stills, and more fan-friendly content throughout the filmmaking process. Horror fans have responded enthusiastically by helping The Nursery build a huge social following of more than 60,000 Facebook fans.
The Nursery is an independent horror movie inspired by genre standouts like Halloween, Phantasm, and House of the Devil. When a damaged college sophomore babysits for a family with a tragic history, she finds herself stalked by a sinister presence and haunted by ghosts from her own past. Soon, she and her friends must confront the angry spirit hunting them down one-by-one on a deliberate march towards its ultimate prey.
Uncork’d Entertainment’s upcoming releases include Matt Mitchell’s The Rizen on VOD in January, Lou Simon’s 3, due for release in 2018, and the highly anticipated Jurassic Games from Gremlin director Ryan Bellgardt.
