BEVERLY HILLS, CA – This May, Anchor Bay Entertainment and Dimension Films will unleash the supernatural thriller DARK SKIES on Blu-ray™ and DVD. From the producer of Paranormal Activity, Insidious and Sinister, DARK SKIES is a chilling film about the existence of evil and the strength it takes to fight its insidious attack. Hitting retail on May 28th, DARK SKIES will include a feature commentary and will be available for an SRP of $39.99 for the Blu-ray™ Combo Pack and $29.98 for the DVD.
DARK SKIES stars Keri Russell (August Rush, “The Americans”) and Josh Hamilton (The Bourne Identity, J. Edgar) as a young couple with children living in the suburbs. As husband and wife, Daniel (Hamilton) and Lacy Barrett (Russell) witness an escalating series of disturbing events involving their family, their safe and peaceful home quickly unravels. When it becomes clear that the Barrett family is being targeted by an unimaginably terrifying and deadly force, Daniel and Lucy take matters in their own hands to solve the mystery of what is after their family.

DARK SKIES was written and directed by Scott Stewart (Priest, Legion).
DARK SKIES explores the dynamics of family, psychology and humanity as a household unites against an enigmatic menace. Is there still time to overwhelm this ominous force, or has “the invasion already happened?” DreadCentral.com’s Heather Wixson called DARK SKIES “a terrifying, mind-bending thriller.” Avi Offer at NYC Movie Guru said “Sci-fi at its chilling best. A terrifying, suspenseful and jolting experience.”
DARK SKIES Blu-ray™ and DVD special features will include the feature commentary with Writer/Director Scott Stewart, Producer Jason Blum, Executive Producer Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Editor Peter Gvozdas as well as alternate and deleted scenes from the film.
Fright Flix Productions and controversial cult filmmaker Nick Palumbo have begun pre-production on “MUSE,” a psychological horror film starring Samantha Mion in her film debut. Co-starring Patrick Scott Lewis (“Zodiac”), as an irascible thespian. MUSE is written, and directed by Palumbo and produced by Nick and David Palumbo along with cult filmmaker James Cullen Bressack (“Hate Crime”). Director of Photography is David Newbert (“Marfa Girl”). Principal photography begins on April 15 in Los Angeles, California. The announcement was made today by Fright Fix Productions’ President Nick Palumbo.
“I’m very excited to return to set with my follow up to ‘MURDER-SET-PIECES,’” said Palumbo. ‘MUSE’ is something very different from me. The subject is extremely relevant. The film is a character study of a sociopathic young woman, and how loneliness and isolation pushes her further into the abyss. I believe it’s a feeling many actors have experienced and will surely relate to. With our incredibly talented production team, we are confident we’ll give thriller/horror fans something to talk about as we offer an unflinching look at the dark side of the entertainment industry.”
“Nick is one of the very few American filmmakers that isn’t afraid to lay it all on the line and make a confrontational film,” said Bressack. “His dark and visceral style is unparalleled within the genre.”
MUSE is a brutally honest and chilling story of a young actress (Mion), descending into homicidal madness. Both shocking and controversial, the film is told from her point of view, as we follow her dark odyssey through modern day Los Angeles.
MUSE is written and directed by Nick Palumbo, produced by Nick and David Palumbo and James Cullen Bressack through their Fright Flix banner.
