A Mark Hartley Film
From acclaimed cult film documentarian Mark Hartley (NOT QUITE HOLLYWOOD< MACHETE MAIDENS UNLEASHED!), ELECTRIC BOOGALOO: THE WILD, UNTOLD STORY OF CANNON FILMS centres on the story of two movie-obsessed immigrant cousins, Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus, who in pursuit of the ‘American dream’ launched an indie studio that would produce over 120 exploitation films from 1979 – 1989. No one could have anticipated just how close these two outsiders would get in nearly taking over both Hollywood and the UK film industry. Their passion for cinema changed the way movies were made and marketed. Ultimately this passion would come between them and the company they built together. This is a one-of-a-kind story about two-of-a-kind men who (for better or worse) changed film forever.

“Bill, a well meaning family man, unwittingly turns to crime as a last resort after losing his job. But his growing friendship with a police detective threatens to expose his double life.”

“A polished indie thriller… Solid performances from Bentley and Harry Potter co-star Jason Isaacs… Things People Do has much to recommend, including gorgeous New Mexico landscapes, sumptuous digital cinematography and - as we might expect from Klein - virtuoso editing… Marks Klein as an interesting talent to watch.” The Hollywood Reporter

“Director Saar Klein’s impressive debut puts a criminal spin on suburban discontent… an engrossing narrative that flows along with few distractions along the way… gripping… bound to receive more attention for its strong performances.” Indiewire

“In a wintry small town, the body of a teenager named Jamie Marks is found by the river. Adam, the star of his cross-country team, becomes fascinated with Jamie, a boy nobody really knew or interacted with, except occasionally to bully him. When Jamie’s ghost begins to appear both to Adam and Gracie, the classmate who discovered the body, Adam is caught between two worlds. He has a budding romance with Gracie, but he also feels a deep connection to Jamie, who brings him closer to the world of the undead.”

“Carter Smith’s folllow-up to the gore-horror success of THE RUINS is an artfully handled supernatural love story which will definitely stir critical and buyer interest.” Variety

“Smith’s voice is fine-tuned, enlivening everything on screen with romance and melancholy. A compelling poetic meditation on human connection and the repercussions of shame.” Indiewire
