RLJE Films has acquired all North American rights to the upcoming the horror/thriller Monster Party from writer/director Chris von Hoffmann (Drifter). The film stars Julian McMahon (“Nip/Tuck”), Robin Tunney (The Craft, “The Mentalist”), Sam Strike (Leatherface), Erin Moriarty (Blood Father), Lance Reddick (John Wick, “Fringe”), Brandon Micheal Hall (“Search Party”), Virginia Gardner (Project Almanac), and Diego Boneta (“Scream Queens”). RLJE Films will release the film nationally in theaters, VOD and Digital HD on Nov. 2, 2018.
“We’re excited to release Monster Party this November,” said Mark Ward, Chief Acquisitions Officer at RLJE Films. “With the combination of established actors who already have followings of their own, and young up-and-coming talent just breaking through, we know there will be a wide audience drawn to this incredibly clever horror/thriller that is loaded with twists and turns.”
The story follows three thieves who plan a daring heist posing as waiters at a fancy Malibu mansion dinner party in hopes of paying off an urgent debt. When their plan goes horribly wrong, the trio realizes the dinner guests are not as innocent as they seem and their simple cash grab becomes a violent and desperate battle to get out of the house alive.
“Chris von Hoffman’s storytelling is both entertaining and intense,” said Producer Jesse Berger at Dark Web Productions. “It has been an incredible experience working with the creative team to bring this rollercoaster ride of a film to life.”
Monster Party is produced by Eric B. Fleischman (All About Nina), Brian Kavanaugh-Jones (Sinister), Jesse Berger (Oblivion), and Fred Berger (La La Land), and executive produced by Fernando Loureiro (The Little Hours), Roberto Vasconcellos (Sweet Virginia), Maurice Fadida (The Clapper), Kyle Marcotte, Caleb Nelson, Teddy Cabugos (Deep Murder) and Michael Yedwab (Abattoir). Brent C. Johnson is co-producer.
