Director Mark Newton’s Attack of the Southern Fried Zombies, winner of “Goriest Film” at FANtastic Horror Film Festival in San Diego, has been acquired by Gravitas Ventures for domestic distribution, announced Daniel Wood, executive producer.
The deal was brokered by Wood on behalf of the film, and by Spector for Gravitas Ventures. Gravitas Ventures will release the film in North America in March of 2018. Cardinal XD represents the film for international sales and is currently fielding offers from foreign buyers for several territories at AFM in Loews 541.
