Grindstone Entertainment has picked up all North American rights to Devil May Call, the latest feature
from director Jason Cuadrado. Lionsgate Home Entertainment, which has a distribution deal with Grindstone,
will release the thriller in the U.S. and Canada.
The horror-thriller stars Corri English (Unrest), Tyler Mane (Halloween I and II), Traci Lords (Blade),
Van Hansis (Eastsiders), Tracy Perez (East Los High), and Camillia Monet (The Shield).
The film is about a young blind woman who is preparing for her last shift at a suicide hotline. One of her regular
callers is a serial killer she unknowingly has been talking out of killing himself. Her last night on the job becomes
a nightmare when the killer stalks the call center.
The film was written by Jason Cuadrado and Wyatt Doyle with Cuadrado taking on directorial duties.
Cuadrado described the title as a throwback to claustrophobic thrillers like Wait Until Dark and Assault on Precinct 13.
The film is a co-production between Urs Brunner’s Bangkok-based Thai-Swiss entertainment company
Angel and Bear Productions and Esperanza Productions, LLC run by Actress/Producer Camillia Monet.
Lionsgate Home Entertainment will release the film across all media platforms in 2015. International rights for
the film are being handled by Devilworks, who have already sold several territories in Europe and Asia.
The U.S. deal was negotiated by Lars Bjorck of the Bjorck Film Alliance, the filmmakers,
and Grindstone Entertainment’s Stan Wertlieb.
