*Updated with news about Vincenzo Natali’s Haunter*
Millennium Films has acquired the horror-comedy Hell Baby for U.S. distribution. The game plan is a fall release with a VOD debut first then a limited theatrical run.
The film made its premiere at Sundance earlier this year and stars Rob Corddry, Leslie Bibb, Keegan Michael Key, Riki Lindhome, Paul Scheer and Rob Huebel. Robert Ben Garant and Thomas Lennon wrote and directed.
In the film, an expectant couple moves into the most haunted fixer-upper in New Orleans – a house with a demonic curse. Things spiral out of control and soon only the Vatican’s elite exorcism team can save the pair – or can it?
Meanwhile, Vincenzo Natali’s Haunter – which premiered at SXSW – has been picked up by IFC for its IFC Midnight label. The film, starring Abigail Breslin, does not have a release date, but we’ll keep you posted. Check out our exclusive chat with Natali here.
