Just in time for Halloween, Vortex Media is proud to announce the Canadian release of the Bokeh Collective and Buck Productions film, MAKING MONSTERS now available on Digital HD and On Demand.
When a celebrity couple famed for their YouTube scare-prank channel are invited to a friend’s converted church in the countryside for a weekend getaway, a series of startling events unfold that spiral them into an inexplicable nightmare.
“We directed Making Monsters with the hope of delivering to audiences a fun yet terrifying adrenaline rush from start to finish.” said directors Justin Harding and Rob Brunner. “As filmmakers, we really focused on creating a movie for true horror fans. This meant pushing beyond the genre’s usual tropes, that keeps you wondering if things are going to end up alright for our two main characters. We are thrilled to know that people around the world can finally enjoy Making Monsters at home – and starting at the absolute best time! Happy Halloween!”
The film stars Jonathan Craig (Carved), Alana Elmer (Latched, Kookie) and Tim Loden (Bloodlines, Chuck). Making Monsters is produced by Jarrett Siddall (Kookie), Justin Harding (Latched, Kookie, Amazing Race Canada), Sean Buckley (Another WolfCop, Hellmington) with executive producer Dale Andrews (Carved, Latched).
“We at Vortex Media are extremely excited to be releasing MAKING MONSTERS. Justin and Rob bring a passion and enthusiasm to this movie that has translated into a perfect Halloween movie!” – Ron Harrison, EVP Distribution and Marketing at Vortex Media
