Peace Arch Entertainment & Genius Products reach US distribution deal for Archetype Genre Films

MUMBAI: North America's Arch Entertainment Group Inc. and Genius Products, Inc. have entered into an exclusive agreement for Genius to distribute a new slate of cutting edge horror and thriller films from Peace Arch's Archetype Films division. The announcement was made by Genius CEO Trevor Drinkwater and Peace Arch president John Flock.

Under the agreement, Genius has acquired exclusive US DVD distribution rights to five new films from Peace Arch's Archetype Films label, which focuses on the horror, thriller and action and science fiction genres:

* "Warriors of Terra" stars Edward Furlong ("Terminator 2") as a member of an animal rights group that penetrates a biotech facility and mistakenly releases a monster within.

* "5ive Girls" stars Ron Perlman ("Hellboy") as a Catholic school priest who helps five teenage girls with supernatural powers battle the ancient demon Legion.

* "The Last Sect" starring David Carradine ("Kill Bill") as a vampire hunter tracking a group of female vampires who use an Internet dating service to line up their victims.

* "Ultimate Killing Machine" starring Michael Madsen ("Sin City") as the head of a top-secret U.S. military operation that turns misfits and wash-outs into genetically engineered ultimate soldiers.

* "Troubled Waters" starring Jennifer Beals ("The L Word") as a determined detective with psychic powers investigating the suspicious kidnapping of a rich man's daughter.

"We are very excited to be getting into business with Genius just as they are emerging as one of the best independent home entertainment distributors in the country," says Flock. "We believe that these five films will be excellent additions to their growing lineup of top quality productions, and we expect to continue supplying Genius with additional productions from our growing pipeline, whether first run productions from our film and television divisions, family and children's product from our kaBOOM! Entertainment subsidiary or desirable catalogue content from the Castle Hill/Dream Library, which we recently agreed to acquire."

"We are thrilled to be in business with Peace Arch Entertainment and John Flock, who in a very short time established his company as a premiere producer of quality films with high commercial value. This is a terrific deal for both companies and hopefully, the start of a long and successful relationship as Genius Products continues to build its library with top quality titles in the horror and thriller genres," adds Genius CEO Trevor Drinkwater.
