Black Fawn Distribution Acquires Cult Horror Film “Scarecrows”May 14, 2020
Black Fawn Distribution has nabbed the Canadain rights to the cult horror hit Scarecrows
There’s more good news. The company has also announced it has moved up the digital release date of the film by three months. Scarecrows is now set to debut on all major Canadian digital VOD platforms next Tuesday, May 19, 2020.
“Originally, the plan was to release Scarecrows this fall,” explains Black Fawn Distribution’s Operations Manager CF Benner. “However, we understand that people are doing the right thing by staying home right now and, since we had the ability to move up the release date, we figured why not? This really is a fun horror flick and, as a genre film distributor, it’s our responsibility to get films like Scarecrows out to horror fans, regardless of the circumstances.”
Directed by Stu Stone (The Haunted House on Kirby Road, Jack of all Trades) and produced by 5’7 Films and Breakthrough Entertainment Inc., Scarecrows follows four stoner teenagers who, while on a hike to find a secret lagoon, are kidnapped by a psychotic farmer and turned into scarecrows. The film stars Hannah Gordon, Mike Taylor, Umed Amin, and Maaor Ziv. Scarecrows was co-written by Stu Stone and Adam Rodness, with Rodness serving as producer.
“When Black Fawn Distribution presented us with an opportunity to release Scarecrows across Canada, it was a no-brainer for us,” states director Stu Stone. “We hope our film can help people escape the crazy cycle of watching stale reruns and old sporting events while doing the responsible thing during self-isolation. We are beyond thrilled to have the opportunity to share our film across Canada and thank Black Fawn Distribution for making it possible so quickly!”
While on a hike to find a secret lagoon, four stoners have no choice but to pass through an ominous cornfield. Unbeknownst to them, a psychotic farmer despises trespassers and has vowed to kill anyone who crosses his land by turning them into living scarecrows, leaving them to rot in his fields. Once one goes up… it never comes down.
“Making a movie is a crazed task to begin with and there’s nothing more satisfying than being able to share it on your home turf,” concurs producer Adam Rodness. “Black Fawn Distribution has proven themselves as a powerful distribution outlet for genre films across the board. This is a valued partnership and we are proud of them being able to release Scarecrows across Canada.”
