Gravitas Ventures acquires “Nefarious” for worldwide distribution

Gravitas Ventures, a Red Arrow Studios company, has acquired worldwide rights to the multi-award winning Nefarious from Ash Mountain Films via sales agent Cyfuno Ventures.  The film will be released on 17 March, 2020.

The home invasion horror/thriller focuses on a robbery which goes horribly wrong, and stars Toby Wynn-Davies (Escape From Cannibal Farm), Nadia Lamin (Hosts) and newcomer Buck Braithwaite.  Richard Rowntree directed, from a script he cowrote with Matthew Davies (Dogged).

The independent film has been collecting high praise and multiple awards at festivals in both the US and the UK, including three for best horror feature.  With a heavy emphasis on social commentary, particularly relating to economic disparity in the western world, the film features award winning practical effects and a clever script.

Nightmarish Conjurings called the film “a seat gripping journey of twists and blood filled turns”, whilst Horror Fuel said it had “a ton of entertainment value”.  Ready, Steady, Cut described is as “a nasty little film, just as intended” and “a brutal little success”.
Ash Mountain Films said of the deal “We’re very excited to be partnering with Gravitas on the release of our second feature film in the horror genre, and hope that it serves horror fans and beyond with a thrilling experience.”
