Cinedigm officially announced on Friday that it has acquired all US and Canadian rights to Emmy-nominated Sam Logan Khaleghi’s upcoming thriller, Devil’s Night: Dawn Of The Nain Rouge. Pic hails from Kyyba Films and SLK Media Group, whose Khaleghi features with a cast that includes actress Jesi Jensen (Legends & Lies) and Nathan Kane Mathers (brother of Marshall Mathers/Eminem) in his screen debut.
Devil’s Night: Dawn Of The Nain Rouge is described as “an action-packed crime thriller following a pair of local police officers from a small town just outside of Detroit being plagued by mysterious murders. As the evidence mounts up, they can no longer deny the presence of a long forgotten supernatural entity, the Nain Rouge, the city’s harbinger of doom.” Aaron Herman Russman penned the film whose soundtrack includes original music from platinum selling artist and co-star, Swifty McVay (Eminem’s former bandmate in D12).
“Director Sam Logan Khaleghi and his team have crafted a suspenseful, edge-of-your-seat thriller that explores the dark forces – both human and not – that leave behind a bizarre trail of murders,” said Yolanda Macias, Cinedigm’s Executive Vice-President of Acquisitions and Digital Sales. “Featuring a strong female lead who is also a military veteran, the film’s dramatic exploration of larger social and moral conflicts in a Detroit community adds further resonance and weight to its bone-chilling scares and truly terrifying ending.”
“I’m truly elated to be working with the team at Cinedigm as they take the reins on our urban legend from Motown and bring it to a larger audience,” says Khaleghi. “It’s an amalgam of mystery, action and drama with a dash of creature feature thrills.”
The deal was negotiated by Josh Thomashow, Director of Acquisitions at Cinedigm, with Khaleghi and the film’s producing team including Tel Ganesan and Jesse Dean Crawfis. Devil’s Night: Dawn Of The Nain Rouge opens on Digital and DVD on June 23, 2020.
