SICK IN THE HEAD MOVING AHEAD

Fangoria Films will be teaming with the new horror-centric company BloodWorks to bring Frank (BRAIN DAMAGE) Henenlotter?s SICK IN THE HEAD to the screen. BloodWorks, co-founded by 2001 MANIACS producer Chris Tuffin and former NFL star Glenn Cadrez, will co-finance, produce and distribute SICK IN THE HEAD with the Sony-based company Seven Arts.

'The time couldn?t be better for FANGORIA to be back in the filmmaking business,' says SICK producer Steven Mackler, who shepherded a number of genre films in the ?80s, including the cult favorite THE REJUVENATOR, and presides over Fango?s three video labels. 'Horror is hotter than ever. Best of all, audiences are going for fright fare off the beaten path, like the Japanese-themed THE GRUDGE and the grisly SAW. We waited a while for the right partner to come along and make SICK IN THE HEAD because it is such a strange film, with a David Lynch quality to it. We found that kind of gutsy partner in BloodWorks.'

SICK IN THE HEAD, will be directed by Henenlotter, a genre fave for his BASKET CASE trilogy and FRANKENHOOKER, who wrote SICK with R.A. Thornburn. The hallucinogenic story concerns a young man trying to escape the horrifying legacy of his parents, who remain incarcerated for a series of bizarre serial killings.

'SICK IN THE HEAD will be the first in a slate of branded FANGORIA feature films that we are developing,' says FANGORIA editor Tony Timpone, who initiated the SICK project and will serve as the movie?s executive producer. 'We always envisioned a line of Fango movies, not unlike what National Lampoon pioneered with their comedy films. Now that every major and minor studio has a genre division because of the great demand for product, Fango is in a great position to jump in and produce scary, quirky and innovative horror flicks.'

In 1990, Fango publisher Norman Jacobs executive-produced three horror films for Columbia TriStar Home Video: MINDWARP, CHILDREN OF THE NIGHT and SEVERED TIES. Jacobs will serve as one of SICK IN THE HEAD?s executive producers as well.

BloodWorks also has gore pioneer H.G. Lewis? WIN, LOSE OR DIE in the pipeline, which will roll before SICK IN THE HEAD. Seven Arts was involved with financing and/or repping such films as RULES OF ENGAGEMENT, STANDER, THE BELIEVER and DUETS. In regards to the BloodWorks/Seven Arts deal, producer Tuffin said in a statement: 'This is a great situation for both companies, wherein Seven Arts will receive content for its worldwide output deals, while BloodWorks will strengthen its sales and co-financing mechanism.'

Production on SICK IN THE HEAD will begin in March 2005. Casting discussions have already begun.
