Bedeviled

FROM BLOODY DISGUSTING (read full article here)

Freestyle Digital Media, the digital film distribution division of Byron Allen’s Entertainment Studios, has acquired the North American rights to the modern technological horror feature Bedeviled for limited theatrical release and digital distribution beginning August 11, 2017.

Bedeviled, which Luiz reviews and called “a well-crafted supernatural thriller,” tells the story of five teenagers who receive an invite to download a Siri-like application.  Once they accept this app — which calls itself ‘Mister Bedevil’ — it begins to torment each of them by tapping into their worst fears. To stop this malevolent force, the teens must learn to trust and depend on each other’s wits and courage.

“We’ve created a new, charismatic horror villain, and we hope audiences will find him terrifying and lovable at the same time,” said filmmakers Abel Vang and Burlee Vang.

Co-written, and co-directed by brothers Abel Vang and Burlee Vang, Bedeviled features a cast that includes Saxon Sharbino (Alice Gorman), Mitchell Edwards (Cody Mathershed), Carson Boatman (Gavin Briggs), Victory Van Tuyl (Haley Davis), Brandon Soo Hoo (Dan Moua), Jordan Essoe (Mr. BeDevil), and Alexis G Zall (Nikki).  Bedeviled was produced by Abel Vang, Burlee Vang, Leng Yang, Cheng Yang, and Kirk Roos with Executive Producers Stephen Stanley, Brad Brizendine, Fuabkuab Yang, Scott P. Barlow.

Bedeviled to premiere at Screamfest!

Bedeviled will make its world premiere at Screamfest in LA on October 22.  More info and tickets here.
