Horror-Thriller Sets Digital Debut on North American VOD Platforms November 16th
Freestyle Digital Media, the digital film distribution division of Byron Allen’sAllen Media Group/Entertainment Studios, has acquired North American VOD rights to the Horror-Thriller SANZARU. SANZARU will be available to rent and own on North American digital HD internet, cable, and satellite platforms on November 16, 2021 through Freestyle Digital Media.
SANZARU is a horror-thriller that tells the story of a nurse hired to care for an elderly woman who uncovers a shocking family secret. Evelyn, a young Filipina nurse, is living on an isolated estate while taking care of Dena, the aging matriarch of a Texas family. As Dena slips deeper into dementia, Evelyn begins to sense something ominous lurking behind the walls. Is the house a conduit for a malevolent supernatural force? Or is she just hearing things? As Evelyn’s paranoia pushes her to uncover her employer’s awful past, she may not be prepared for the havoc her curiosity will unlock.
Written and directed by Xia Magnus, SANZARU was produced by Alyssa Polk, Anthony Pedone, Kenny Riches, Matt Wigham, and Nathan Hertz. The main cast is Aina Dumlao (‘Evelyn’), Justin Arnold (‘Clem’), Jayne Taini (‘Dena’), and Jon Viktor Corpuz (‘Amos’).
“We’re thrilled to share Sanzaru with the world,” said filmmaker Xia Magnus. “As a meditation on forced isolation and family trauma, we think it’s a prescient film for these difficult times.”
Freestyle Digital Media’s Director of Acquisitions, Chris Gray, negotiated the deal to acquire SANZARU with Michelle L. Mower at Imagination Worldwide, LLC.
