The first images from a creepy looking new indie horror have been released, and you will find the images for Phobia above and below. The three images certainly have a sort of Insidious vibe going on, don’t you think?
The Press Release:
Ruthless Pictures has picked up North American rights to the psychological thriller Phobia, written by Matthew Barnes and Rory Abel, produced by Elias (Gut) and Mike Aransky (London Betty), and directed by Rory Abel.
The film follows an agoraphobic man trapped in his own home and plagued by a malevolent spirit.
“We wanted to take the traditional haunted house scenario and approach it from a different perspective,” said director Abel.
Ruthless Pictures CEO Jesse Baget commented on the acquisition, “Rory and his team made a gripping psychological thriller that had me at the edge of my seat. I’m excited to be a part of the project.”
“We’re thrilled to be working with Ruthless Pictures on the release for Phobia,” producer Elias added. “Working with a tested, genre filmmaker like Jesse on distribution is exactly the kind of partnership we were looking for.”
Leading the cast are Michael Jefferson (Sheer), Emma Dubery (Plague Town), Sarah Schoofs (Gut), Peter Gregus (The Producers), with a special appearance by scream queen Debbie Rochon.
Ruthless Pictures is also in post production on Damien Leone’s creature-clash Frankenstein vs. the Mummy and the alien abduction thriller The Device, directed by Jeremy Berg (The Invoking).
