A Brilliant Monster, the critically acclaimed indie horror film from director F.C. Rabbath, has been acquired by Gravitas Ventures and is eyeing a May 2019 release.
A Brilliant Monster follows Mitch Stockridge (Dennis Friebe), a successful author of inspirational/self-help stories who is harboring a dark and deadly secret — that his endless supply of renowned creative ideas is being provided by a monster that he’s hiding in his house. A monster, of course, that must be fed human souls and flesh.
Rabbath’s film has garnered praise in the early years of its life, with Dread Central calling it “one of the strongest films to come out of the indie horror scene in 2017,” and That Moment In stating that A Brilliant Monster is “a chilling, ambitious independent film that does the genre right, taking smart risks that offer plenty of challenges.” Our own D.D. Crowley gave the film a positive review in last November.
A Brilliant Monster held its public premiere at TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood last year as part of the prestigious Dances With Films festival. Now that it’s been acquired by Red Arrow Studios’ Gravitas Ventures, the film is finally getting a public release that consists of a limited theatrical run to go along with its digital and home video releases in a little over three months.
In addition to Dennis Friebe, the film stars Joy Kigin, Nick Leali, Dina Najjar, Aléa Figueroa and David Raizor – a cast that has been celebrated frequently in early reviews for the horror flick. It is produced by F.C.Rabbath, Dennis Friebe, Ramsey White, Jessica Roszko and Joshua Ayres.
Founded in 2006, Gravitas Ventures has established itself as one of the leading all rights distributors of independent feature films and documentaries, connecting indie filmmakers and producers with distribution opportunities all over the world. They’ve helped to distribute more than a thousand films into over a hundred million homes throughout North America, and over a billion homes worldwide.
