iW NEWS | American Cinema International Takes "The Butcher"

Producer and distributor American Cinema International has secured the international rights to horror film “Ed Gein The Butcher of Plainfield.” The film tells the true story of serial killer Ed Kein, who was responsible for a series of murders in 1950s rural Wisconsin. It stars Kane Hodder and Michael Berryman and was produced, directed and written by Michael Feifer (“Grim Reaper.”)

“‘Ed Gein’ is truly one of the most terrifying films that will [be] in Cannes this year… as well as entertaining,” said American Cinema International CEO George Shamieh. “This type of film is very successful because its genre appeals to audiences worldwide.” [Peter Knegt]
