Season’s Screamings and Happy Horror-days! Just in time for the most spooktackular time of the year, Warner Bros. Home Entertainment will have you on the edge of seats with an all-new original feature-length horror film – Toys of Terror – on Digital October 27, 2020 and on Blu-ray and DVD January 19, 2021. The movie is priced to own at $14.99 SRP for Digital, $24.98 SRP ($29.98 in Canada) for Blu-ray which includes a Digital Copy, $19.98 SRP ($24.98 in Canada) for the DVD.

David and Hannah Cashman have promised their family a fun Christmas getaway, but when they arrive at a grand, old house in the snowy woods of Washington and are greeted by familiar construction foreman, the kids realize their parent’s plan to make it a working vacation; renovating the place in the hopes of flipping it. Alicia, the eldest, is annoyed but the younger kids are soon distracted when, wandering through the creepy mansion, they find a stash of old toys in an abandoned playroom and take to them instantly. Before long, they seem to be inseparable from their new playthings, much to the consternation of their nanny Rose who, along with Alicia, senses that something in the house is not quite right. As stranger and stranger things start to happen, Rose and Alicia have a hunch that there may be more to the history of the old house than the Cashman’s are letting on. Can the family escape with their lives – or will they stay forever in the crumbling house, never to celebrate another Christmas again?

Bringing the nostalgia of stop motion holiday specials – Toys of Terror stars Kyana Teresa (“Shadowhunters,” “Star Trek: Discovery”) as Hannah Cashman, Georgia Waters (“Siren”) as Rose Mathis, Verity Marks (“The Christmas Club”) as Alicia Cashman, Dayo Ade (“Workin Moms,” “October Faction”) as David Cashman, Saul Elias as Franklin Cashman and Zoe Fish as Zoe Cashman. The film is written and executive produced by Dana Gould (“Stan Against Evil,” “The Simpsons”) and directed by Nicholas Verso (Boys in the Trees, “Nowhere Boys”). The movie is produced by Blue Ribbon Content in association with Warner Bros. Home Entertainment and SYFY. Toys of Terror will make its broadcast debut on SYFY this December.

Michael Pare (Eddie & The Cruisers, The Virgin Suicides) and Eileen Davidson (“The Young & The Restless”) star in a joyous Christmas treat, Middleton Christmas.

Vivacious high school senior Samantha finds herself attracted to Max, the quiet new kid at her prestigious private school, Middleton Prep. The trouble is: Sam already has a boyfriend, basketball star Lucas. While Sam wrestles with her feelings about both guys, her mother, school dean Alana, recruits Max and his father Johnny, the new maintenance man, to help out with a Christmas fundraiser that could save the school from being closed. But when Sam’s life is threatened in a serious car accident, Alana and Johnny grow closer, even as Max and Lucas both realize how much they each care for her, culminating in a decision that will change their lives forever. With Christmas approaching, everyone in Middleton must question their values about sacrifice, family, and love — and learn what it means to just be thankful for another Christmas.

Kennedy Turner, Michael Varde, and Trevor Stines also star in Middleton Christmas,  directed by Dale Fabrigar and written by Tricia Aurand.

Award-winning Australian drama ACUTE MISFORTUNE,adapted from Erik Jensen’s award-winning biography of Adam Cullen, releases on digital November 3 from Dark Star Pictures.

The film, starring Daniel Henshall and Toby Wallace, is the story of the biographer and his subject, as it descends into a dependent and abusive relationship.

Erik Jensen was an ambitious 19 year-old journalist at The Sydney Morning Herald when Archibald Prize-Winning painter, Adam Cullen, with a career retrospective at the Art Gallery of NSW, invited him to write his biography. This is the story of the four-and-a-half years leading to Cullen’s death at the age of 46. It is the story of their increasingly claustrophobic relationship.

Based on Erik Jensen’s award-winning biography of Adam Cullen, ACUTE MISFORTUNE is the story of the biographer and his subject. It is one of the most acclaimed Australian films of the year, revealing an iconic artist and lauded author in unsparing detail.

ACUTE MISFORTUNE is a film about theft and the commerce of theft, the instability of lies and of coming through an abusive relationship to find meaning in its wake.

These are true events, told almost entirely in real dialogue. Featuring AACTA Best Actor Winner, Daniel Henshall (Snowtown, The Babadook), and Toby Wallace (Romper Stomper, The Turning) the debut feature of Thomas M. Wright (Sweet Country, Top of the Lake) is a meticulously researched film that was named one of the best films of the year in The Monthly Awards and by Screen Daily and received The Age Critics Prize at Melbourne International Film Festival.

Director: Thomas M. Wright
Cast: Daniel Henshall, Toby Wallac
