With everyone stuck in quarantine, there has never been a greater need for new, riveting content to dive into. Thankfully Black Fawn Distribution has announced a free “Night of Digital Screams” watch party, offering up a triple bill of engaging horror content. In support of National Canadian Film Day, the stream will take place on April 22 at 8:00 PM EST via Twitch.
The event will feature three movies from the Black Fawn Distribution catalogue: I’ll Take Your Dead, Let Her Out, and Bed of the Dead, and will include a few surprises for those fans that choose to tune in.
If that were not enough, Black Fawn Distribution is also offering up a 50% sale on their physical media via their online store starting today. The sale will include all the most recent releases including films such as Harpoon, I’ll Take Your Dead and The Ranger. Black Fawn Distribution also outlined that they are offering all their VOD rentals for $2 per 7 day period during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We’re so proud of our fellow Canadians for doing the right thing and staying inside right now, that we felt that putting together a few initiatives would help everyone out,” states Black Fawn Distribution’s Operations Manager C.F. Benner. “Films are currently being consumed at record levels and it was important to us to have our Canadian titles available to everyone, regardless of where they live or their financial situation. The TWITCH broadcast especially gives film fans a bit of a break while also allowing them to still support Canadian-made horror.”
Black Fawn Distribution is considered to be one of Canada’s premiere outlets for horror films and routinely releases titles made by up-and-coming Canadian directors. Some of their previous releases include Bite, In the House of Flies, Discopath and The Heretics while more releases are scheduled to be released digitally in the near future.
“As the world sits in self-isolation, Black Fawn Distribution wanted to bring some Canadian horror to Canadian horror fans across the country with this special TWITCH broadcast,” explains the company’s Marketing Manager Christopher Giroux. “The TWITCH platform allows us to screen films for our fans while also bringing in some special guests throughout the broadcast. We just want to do our part to bring National Canadian Film Day to everyone at home.”
For anyone looking for some good genre cinema tonight, grab the milk duds, some soda, and tune-in to the Black Fawn Twitch for some good old-fashioned free horror.
