With Anthony C. Ferrante’s Boo scheduled to screen at this weekend’s London FrightFest event, now’s seems timely to receive details of the US Region 1 release, now announced for October 25th this year via Ventura Distribution.
The film (written and directed by Ferrante) is an atmospheric ghost story chock full of genre references for shock aficionados. On Halloween, a handful of college students (Trish Coren, Jilon Ghai, Josh Holt and Nicole Rayburn) become trapped in an abandoned hospital. It’s not long before they find themselves stuck in the middle of a battle between two ghosts – a nurse (Dee Wallace Stone) and her psychotic patient.
Boo will be screening at the Odeon West End on Sunday 28th August at 3.15pm. Check out www.frightfest.co.uk for more information on how to book tickets.
8th Jun 04 The film opens with a very similar voiceover narration to the original (see Trivia) but with different footage as we tour the furnace room, all fingernail scratches and blood-clotted hair, of the Hewitt residence.
