‘Two-Headed Shark Attack’ & ‘The Presence’ coming to the UK courtesy of Jonathan Sothcott

The much talked about Two-Headed Shark Attack and the creepy looking The Presence are both heading to the UK DVD market Spring 2012 courtesy of Jonathan Sothcott and his ‘Jonathan Sothcott Presents’ label. Both films are in my must-see list, and should be in your as well. A recent press release has all the details you’ll need on these two brilliant looking films:

From the Press Release
Prolific UK horror producer JONATHAN SOTHCOTT (Strippers Vs Werewolves, Elfie Hopkins) is bringing some very different genre films to the British home entertainment market in 2012 through his ‘Jonathan Sothcott Presents’ imprint with leading indie distributor 4Digital Media.

First up, and in keeping with the spirit of Sothcott’s own instant camp classic Strippers Vs Werewolves is TWO-HEADED SHARK ATTACK starring uber-babes CARMEN ELECTRA and BROOKE HOGAN. Sothcott notes, “I love shark movies, JAWS is my favourite film, and I see every one that comes out. This one is destined to become a DVD favourite with its deliriously satisfying visual buffet of stunning babes, outrageous gore and a truly brilliant monster. Casting Brooke and Carmen was brilliant, as they are A grade totty the boys will fall in love with between the amazing set piece deaths the film is peppered with.”

A very different project is high-end supernatural romance THE PRESENCE starring and exec produced by Academy Award winner MIRA SORVINO. Sothcott commented, “It is nice to see a horror film made with real care and attention, and this one is a bit of class. Anyone who enjoyed The Others will love it, and I think Mira gives an absolutely amazing performance. Director Tom Provost is a real talent.”

Sothcott, whose Black and Blue Films has produced 8 UK feature films in the last 2 years, worked as Head of Acquisitions for The Horror Channel some years ago. 4Digital Media’s Tony Taglienti commented, “I always say Jonathan is one of the most commercially-minded producers I know, and we are delighted to be teaming with him on these releases. He has a Roger Corman–type showmanship and is really in love with the genre and helps us reach further on these titles than we might otherwise.”

Sothcott said, “Having released a number of my own pictures with 4Digital, I know that indie films have a great home there for the UK. Tony, Steve and Sally really look after film-makers and offer them a truly personal service, and I’m delighted to be working with them on these and other third party titles.”

In 2011 Sothcott brought US imports The Frankenstein Syndrome (starring Tiffany Sheppis) and Dead West (as Cowboys Vs Vampires) to the UK market, along with underrated Brit chiller Mindflesh. These films were successful enough for him to formalise his relationship with 4DigitalMedia, and they are looking to collaborate on up to 10 releases per year.

Both films will be released on DVD in spring 2012.

A keen enthusiast and collector of all horror and extreme films. I can be picky as i like quality in my horror. This doesn't necessarily mean it has to be a classic, but as long as it has something to impress me then i'm a fan. I watch films by the rule that if it doesn't bring out some kind of emotive response then it aint worth watching.


  1. Jonathan Sothcott seems a top bloke. I was at his Black and Blue seminar at Grimm and he really has a passion for film and getting film out there for us to see.
    “Two Headed Shark Attack” is a must see in my opinion.

  2. howdy…i wrote the script for 2-headed, and am thrilled purple it’s going to be seen overseas! hats off to Jonathan Sothcott for making it happen! The Presence, by the way, is incredible! :mrgreen:
