Stanislav Kapralov makes his feature film directorial debut with Ukranian slasher, Let It Snow. Lionsgate recently acquired U.S. distro rights through its Grindstone banner and will roll the film out via DVD, Digital and On-Demand beginning September 22.
A terrifying blend of action and horror, Let It Snow may just be the ride of your life. As Mia and Max visit a remote European resort for a freeride snowboarding vacation, they ignore the receptionist’s disturbing tales of unexplained deaths on the nearby trails. But when they sneak onto a forbidden slope, Max goes missing, and Mia finds herself attacked by a masked snowmobiler. Now she must brave the rider’s vicious attacks as well as a massive avalanche if she hopes to survive…
Kapralov directs from a script he wrote with Omri Rose, and with a cast that lists actress Ivanna Sakhno (The Spy Who Dumped Me, Pacific Rim: Uprising), and actors Alex Hafner (Submergence, The Councellor), and Tinatin Dalakishvili (Abigail). The film has also been acquired by Hark & Company (Japan], Spentzos Films (Greece), MCF Megacom (Ex-Yugoslavia), Falcon Films (Middle East), and Black Sheep Films (Africa).
“We are excited with the market response to Let it Snow and are thrilled to have secured the support of top valued international partners to bring the story to audiences around the world. Their expertise and thirst to share the breathtaking thriller with genre fans, will set the film up for the successful releases it deserves,” said Arclight Films’ Chairman Gary Hamilton.
The film is produced by Serge Lavrenyuk from Solar Media (Woman at War, A Gentle Creature), and is executive produced by Yan Fisher and Roger Corbi of FishCorb Films (Papillon), and by Marianna Novikova.
