For Immediate Release:
“BACKSLASH” TO BE FIRST CULT HORROR FILM RELEASED UNDER BELOW THE RADAR LABEL
Horror Flick to be Released on May 8, 2007 and Priced at $19.95 SRP
NEW YORK, NY (March 1, 2007) Central Park Media announced that the black comedy horror film BACKSLASH is slated to be released under its newly created Below The Radar label this spring. This Kevin Campbell film (director of the cult classic, Cheerleader Ninjas), which includes the notorious and intellectually raucous kitchen bloodbath scene, features the talents of Tara Platt who is best known for her voiceover work as Tamari in Naruto, one of the Cartoon Network’s highest-rated anime shows. The DVD will contain production notes, an extensive behind-the-scenes photo gallery and will be priced at $19.95 SRP when it hits the streets on May 8, 2007.
Below The Radar is the source for entertaining programming that is not necessarily mainstream and takes inspiration from classic drive-in movies, sexy late night documentaries and wacky comedies – all of which have always had a very devoted fan base. This label, to be distributed by WEA Corporation (an affiliate of Warner Music Group), will feature both recent movies, and also older oddball films previously overlooked because of their eccentricities. Information and updates concerning this label and its releases can be found at BTRfilms.com.
From the director of “Cheerleader Ninjas”
