FilmBuff to Bring DEVIL IN MY RIDE to Digital Audiences
It was announced today that digital entertainment curator, FilmBuff, will release the horror/comedy "Devil in My Ride," starring Sid Haig ("Kill Bill: Vol. 2," "Jackie Brown," "The Devil's Rejects") and directed by Gary Michael Schultz.
FilmBuff has set a release date of May 13 for "Devil in My Ride," and will make the film available to audiences through leading video-on-demand platforms including iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Cable Movies On Demand, Google Play, Sony PlayStation, Xbox Video and Vudu.
When Doreen becomes possessed by the devil on her wedding night, her groom Hank and her rebellious brother Travis put aside their differences to travel across country from Chicago to Las Vegas in the hopes of finding a mythical street preacher who is said to be the last exorcist in America.
Starring alongside Sid Haig are Frank Zieger ("Conviction," "Ocean of Pearls," "Finding Preet"), Erin Breen ("Housekeeper," "Rose White," "Fate Accompli"), Llou Johnson ("Barbershop," "Let's Go to Prison," "Normal") and Joey Bicicchi ("Rudderless").
"Devil in My Ride" is the first feature produced by Red Band Films, the specialty genre label of L.A. based production and finance company Unified Pictures. Gary Schultz produced the film and also wrote the original screenplay with Mike Dozier. Schultz also recently co-produced William H. Macy's "Rudderless," which was just acquired by Paramount, as well as "Beautiful Now," starring Abigail Spencer.
"We are thrilled to have FilmBuff as a partner for the VOD distribution of 'Devil in My Ride.' I'm extremely excited for this venture and cannot wait for everyone to be able to watch it at home," said Schultz.
"Gary's film is a hilarious take on a road trip movie, unlike anything we've ever seen," said FilmBuff's Head of Content, Steven Beckman. "We're thrilled to be able to share 'Devil in My Ride' with audiences everywhere."
