HIDDEN IN THE WOODS AVAILABLE ON DVD, VOD & DIGITAL SEPTEMBER 17
LOS ANGELES (August 13, 2013) – Artsploitation Films, the rising American film label, continues to deliver edgy international movies to North American audiences with its second-ever horror release: HIDDEN IN THE WOODS. Based on a bizarre true story and not for the faint of heart – and also currently being remade in the U.S. – HIDDEN IN THE WOODS features extreme violence, prostitution, sexual assault, buckets of blood and even cannibalism. Deep in the Chilean countryside, Ana and Anny live with their deformed brother and are subject to their father’s perverse and sadistic whims. After a dispute with the police leaves a wake of death and mutilation, they flee and find refuge in a remote cabin hidden from society. Meanwhile, a crime lord, convinced they have stolen the massive stash of drugs their father was hiding, sends a violent pack of thugs to find them. HIDDEN IN THE WOODS is “A devious and unforgiving film….imagery that will make your soul curl…a straight-up bare knuckle bashing film of uberviolence and ultragore.” (Ain’t It Cool News)
Artsploitation’s release of HIDDEN IN THE WOODS will arrive on DVD for the first time ever on September 17. The DVD extras include an eight page booklet, a reversible cover a special look at director Patricio Valladares at Fantasia 2012 and a behind-the-scenes featurette.
HIDDEN IN THE WOODS won Best Extreme Movie at the Feratum Film Festival (Mexico). It also won Best Movie at both the Buenos Aires Rojo Sangre Film Festival and the Asti Film Festival (Italy). Artsploitation’s first-ever horror release WITHER, a Swedish tribute to Sam Raimi’s horror classic, Evil Dead will be released on DVD and VOD this Tuesday, August 20. South Korea’s HORROR STORIES which includes four separate stories and a terrifying wrap-around story will be Artsploitation’s third horror release on October 8. Jason Banker’s TOAD ROAD which VICE described as a frightful “hybrid documentary-feature, weaving a narrative out of the real lives of its subjects in a way that hits on greater truths than either form is capable of alone” will be the fourth horror release this fall from Artsploitation Films.

Everything is about to change in the third season installment of HAVEN, the hit Syfy series from the creative team behind “The Dead Zone” and “Tru Calling” that Entertainment Weekly called “a must see show!” Hailed by critics and fans alike (in its third season, HAVEN was the #1 original scripted cable show among adults in its Friday 10 p.m. timeslot), HAVEN: THE COMPLETE THIRD SEASON arrives on DVD and Blu-ray September 3 – in anticipation of the series’ Season 4 premiere on Syfy September 13.
Based on Stephen King’s “The Colorado Kid,” HAVEN follows FBI agent Audrey Parker (Rose), who has taken up residence in the small town of Haven, Maine, a longtime refuge for people with an eclectic range of supernatural abilities. Now a detective in the Haven police department, Audrey finds herself inexplicably linked to the mysteries of this extraordinary seaside village. Season three of Haven picks up immediately following the events of the gripping season two finale with Audrey (Emily Rose) having been brutally kidnapped; Nathan (Lucas Bryant) warned against pursuing a romantic relationship with Audrey; and Duke (Eric Balfour) seemingly engaged in a fight to the death with Nathan after he discovers his family lineage is to kill Haven citizens with troubles. Episodes include “301″, “Stay,” “The Farmer”, “Over My Head”, “Double Jeopardy”, and the season three cliffhanger finale, “Thanks for the Memories”.
