Christopher Denhamís directorial debut; 'Home Movie', has gained some favourable reviews at Montrealís 2008 Fantasia Film Festival. And following the final festival screening several bids were made on the film and IFC Entertainment have acquired the US rights for IFC's Festival Direct Video On Demand and DVD rights Nationwide.

Mitch Davis, the Festival Programmer, was overwhelmed by Christopher Denhamís film. "The atmosphere in the theater at both screenings was incredible - by the last act people were hanging on every word - and many are now calling it the standout experience of the festival. It's a tough, upsetting film, but itís a rewarding one, and the way it played here perfectly illustrates how strongly it plays to crowds. I personally love this film and consider it to be one of 2008's key discoveries. Christopher Denham is an extraordinary new talent."

"In the tradition of great horror films, Christopher Denham's HOME MOVIE will keep you on the edge of your seat," said Jonathan Sehring, President of IFC Entertainment. "Festival Direct will give a nationwide audience the opportunity to experience the terror straight from their living rooms."

'Home Movie' chronicles the Poe family's descent into darkness through a compilation of the familyís home-made video footage. In the remote woods of upstate New York, David (Adrian Pasdar) and Clare (Cady McClain) Poe are attempting to live a Norman Rockwell life - perfect marriage, perfect house. However, the Poe children are hiding a dark secret among themselves and something is dreadfully wrong with ten-year old twins, Jack (Austin William) and Emily (Amber Joy Williams) Poe. To stop them, their parents must enter the nightmare of their childrenís minds. As they attempt to regain control of their childrenís lives the imperative question becomes who will ultimately survive the struggle.

Anchor Bay Entertainment acquired the Canadian DVD rights to the film.
