DNC are a new independent UK distribution label on the scene, and, good news for us genre fans, their initial release slate features lots of great independent horror films, starting with the Crispin Glover film Simon Says, released on January 21st at £15.99 (or £11.99 if you pre-order from amazon.co.uk now).
We are currently awaiting a screener copy for a full review, but in the meantime check out the great artwork and read the official synopsis below for the film that aintitcool.com have called "the crazy slasher [that] might even enter into the genius realm".
Five college friends set off on vacation to have some fun and set up camp at the riverside.
However, they soon find themselves lost in the woods and what started out as an adventure turns into a nightmare as they find themselves being hunted down in a life and death version of the favourite children’s game... Simon Says.
Upcoming DNC releases for the UK include the "amazing"The Living and the Dead by Simon Rumley in May (check out the EMB quote on the DVD's front cover!), another UK indie film Small Town Folk as well as Snoop Dog in Hood of Horror, Milla Jovovich in .45, Breathing Room, The Chair and The Entrance.
