The Device, a film we’ve been enjoying here in the States for a while now, is heading to the UK this March from Image Entertainment; and we have all the details you need right here!
The UK DVD arrives March 23rd and will include three audio commentaries.
Deep in the eerie forest lies a mysterious entity waiting to defy nature in a beguiling new psychological sci-fi thriller. Exposing its sinister purpose, the deadly alien invasion on humanity is born in The Device.
Inspired by classic abduction cases, writer and producer John Portanova (The Invoking) skillfully plays on the intrigue of the unknown. Directed by Jeremy Berg, the film stars Angela DiMarco (Trauma), David S. Hogan (Shadowed), and Kate Alden (The Right Place).
When two sisters find a harmless looking object in the woods, they cannot know to what extent it will change their world – and ours – forever. The small black sphere – mysterious, seductive, enticing – conveys a message, a deep, profound biological message that will reshape our world, recasting relationships with the universe beyond our wildest dreams and worst nightmares. It holds the key to our destiny. It holds the secret to a new kind of life. It holds the embryo of a plan of alien invasion. It is so much more than just The Device.
Following its UK premiere at FrightFest 2014, The Sleeping Room, an acclaimed supernatural tale of Victorian revenge, has been acquired for UK release by Second Sight.
The directorial debut of John Shackleton (writer/producer of Panic Button), the film will make its UK debut via On-Demand and Download on 27 April 2015 and DVD on 11 May 2015. Produced by Gareth I. Davies, The Sleeping Room marks Movie Mogul’s second feature.
Orphaned 19 year-old Brighton call girl Blue (Leila Mimmack – “Becoming Human”) is sent by her violent pimp, Freddie (David Sibley – “Downton Abbey”), and his blowsy partner, Cynthia (Julie Graham – Tower Block), to meet a new punter in Brighton, unaware of the horrifying impact it will have on her life.
As Blue begins to fall for the quirky charms of her client, Bill Hepworth (Joseph Beattie – “Hex”), she’s even more intrigued by the grand Regency terraced house that he is renovating, a once infamous Victorian brothel. Together they uncover a secret room that unlocks many dark and terrifying secrets relating to Blue’s murky family past and the death of her mother. A terrible supernatural force is about to be unleashed, and nobody will escape its monstrous power unless a score for a heinous felony is settled.
Awakening demons past and present, Blue is forced to confront her own in this psychological Gothic nightmare that also stars Christopher Adamson (Pirates of the Caribbean), Chris Waller (Fright Night 2), and horror critic Billy Chainsaw.

The monsters are coming! See you soon, America!
Starring, written by, and directed by Adam Green and inspired by the artwork of artist Alex Pardee, the film stars Ray Wise (“Twin Peaks,” X-Men First Class), Will Barratt (Frozen), and a roster full of horror genre favorites and iconic artists all appearing as themselves.
When filmmaker Adam Green receives a package from a strange man (Wise) claiming he can prove that monsters exist, he and his crew are taken on a mysterious, fantastical, and terrifying journey into the shadows deep down under the ground below our feet. Digging Up the Marrow is a documentary-style film that blends reality with fantasy in a way that will leave even the most hardcore skeptics believing in the existence of monsters.
“DIGGING UP THE MARROW is the result of an incredibly rewarding four-year creative collaboration,” said Green. “It’s a very unique film that doesn’t neatly fit into any specific sub-genre that has come before it. We’ve been thrilled by the overwhelmingly positive response that MARROW has received at early screenings.”
The monsters in the film are vividly brought to life by visionary American artist and trans-media-artistry pioneer Alex Pardee. Under Green’s ArieScope Pictures, the film was produced by Cory Neal and was financed by Neal and Andrew Mysko’s Hacienda Film Co.
