Scream Factory Release Two More IFC Midnight Titles While Shout Select Explores KALIFORNIA!


I've been meaning to see THE CLOVEHITCH KILLER ever since I saw the trailer (seems like it'd make a kick-ass double feature with SUMMER OF '84!), and I'm willing to give WELCOME TO MERCY a shot as well. (Is it me or have IFC Midnight's offerings greatly improved over the past few years?) KALIFORNIA is a movie that's been on my radar for a while, but typically, I still haven't gotten around to seeing it yet. I suppose I'll have to pick up all of these new titles and give them all a whirl in the near future!


Synopsis: A shocking revelation turns a teenage boy’s world upside-down in this chilling look at the evil that can lurk below even the most wholesome surface.

Tyler Burnside (Charlie Plummer - ALL THE MONEY IN THE WORLD) is a Boy Scout, a volunteer at his local church, and the dutiful son of an upstanding, community leader dad (Dylan McDermott - American Horror Story). Only one thing troubles the quiet Kentucky town he lives in: the unsolved murders — in which ten women were brutally tortured and killed by a psychopath known as Clovehitch — that rocked the community more than a decade ago. When Tyler discovers a cache of disturbing images in his father's possession, he begins to suspect that the man he trusts most in the world may be Clovehitch … and that his deadly rampage may not be over. With unrelenting tension, director Duncan Skiles crafts a picture-perfect vision of the American family … and then rips it to shreds.

Synopsis: Excitement, adventure ... and unimaginable terror await on the road to Kalifornia. "Brad Pitt is outstanding" (Rolling Stone) and "Juliette Lewis is utterly, heartbreakingly convincing" (Boxoffice) in this chilling psychological thriller co-starring David Duchovny and Michelle Forbes.

When urban intellectuals Brian (Duchovny) and Carrie (Forbes) set out on a cross-country trip to research a book about serial killers, they share the ride with a couple they barely know — Early Grayce (Pitt) and his girlfriend Adele (Lewis). Locked in a car hurtling westward, the four travelers struggle to find some common ground. But when they finally do connect, Early's violent nature abruptly emerges and the terrified Brian and Carrie realize that they don’t need to go very far to learn about ruthless killers ... because they are already face-to-face with one!
