Sundance Horror-Comedy ‘Greasy Strangler’ Bought by FilmRise for North America (Exclusive)

9 March 2016 9:54 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

FilmRise has acquired the exclusive North American distribution rights for the horror-comedy “The Greasy Strangler,” Variety has learned exclusively.

The film premiered in January at the Sundance Film Festival and will play as a “festival favorite” at SXSW later this month. It will hit theaters this fall as FilmRise will collaborate with Alamo Drafthouse Cinemas in a multi-market theatrical partnership to release the film, a co-production from SpectreVision, Drafthouse, Rook Films and Timpson Films.

The Greasy Strangler” follows a man who runs a disco walking tour along with his browbeaten son. When an alluring woman comes to take the tour, it begins a competition between father and son for her attention. It also signals the appearance of an oily, slimy, inhuman maniac who stalks the streets at night and strangles the innocent — soon dubbed “the Greasy Strangler.”

The film marks the feature debut of director Jim Hosking and is produced by SpectreVision’s Elijah Wood, »
