Cub Lands U.S. Distribution

Cub posterThe Belgium film, CUB, has been absolutely tearing up the festival circuit lately and it looks like all the noise it’s been making has paid off in a U.S. distribution deal. CUB is directed by Jonas Govaerts, written by Govaerts and Roel Mondelaers, and stars Stef Aerts, Evelien BosmansTitus De Voogdt, Gill Eeckelaert, Jan Hammenecker, and Maurice Luijten. Check out the plot summary:

Cub is a horror adventure in which a young imaginative twelve-year-old boy named Sam heads off to camp with his Cub Scouts pack, leaders Peter and Chris, and quartermaster Yasmin. Once they enter the woods, Sam quickly feels something is not quite right. He soon stumbles upon a mysterious tree house and meets a shifty, masked feral-looking child. 

When Sam tries to warn his leaders, they ignore him: The boy often tells tall tales, and Sam’s mysterious past, which he refuses to talk about, makes leader Peter mistrust him. As Sam gets more and more isolated from the other scouts, he becomes convinced a terrible fate awaits them: The feral child, it turns out, is the helper of the poacher, an evil psychopath, who has riddled the forest with ingenious traps and is intent on slaughtering the scouts… one by one.

Sounds like a dark horror-adventure!! Artsploitation Films has nailed down the distribution rights in the U.S. (there’s no official release date as of the writing of this article). Check out some stills and the trailer below. This one sounds like a winner.

Stay Bloody!!!
