We've had a lot of acquisition news drop into our inbox over the last couple of days. After sharing news regarding a couple of Uncork'd Entertainment's releases (HERE and HERE) it's time to give some love to our friends at Wild Eye Releasing. For their part they just announced that they have acquired the throwback slasher Bonejangles for a 2017 digital and physical release.
Directed by Brett DeJager and written by Keith Melcher, Bonejangles stars Phantasm vet Reggie Bannister along with up and coming genre actress Elissa Dowling (We Are Still Here) and Julia Cavanaugh. The film has spent the better part of the last year crisscrossing the globe racking up awards on the festival circuit. Check out a teaser for the film, the ridiculously awesome poster, and the synopsis for Bonejangles below.
"While transporting the unstoppable killer Bonejangles to an asylum, a group of police officers encounter a hellish pit stop: a cursed town where the dead rise from their graves. Now the only way to save their lives and the town is to release Bonejangles and fight the curse...with something much worse."
