Date:

The Bloody Disgusting-powered SCREAMBOX streaming service continues to beat with Cinedigm acquiring all North American rights to the horror mockumentary When the screaming starts, about a journalist who follows a newly formed murder cult founded by a bumbling serial killer. The official trailer is now live, debuted by Fangoria Today!

When the screaming starts will be released exclusively on the Bloody Disgusting-powered horror platform SCREAMBOX on September 20followed by a wider digital release later this fall.

Fangoria’s editor-in-chief Phil Nobile Jr. was delighted that When the screaming starts “does something for serial killers” What we do in the shade did for vampires.”

Watch the official trailer for When the screaming starts below.

Directed by Conor Borun, When the screaming starts follows struggling journalist turned filmmaker Norman, who comes face to face with aspiring serial killer Aidan Mendle. When Norman is invited to follow Aidan on his journey, he thinks he’s finally made his big break. But when Aidan and his newly recruited murder cult start a gory frenzy, Norman’s dream of becoming a famous documentary filmmaker turns into a nightmare.

The film is co-written by Boru and lead actor Ed Hartland, who previously worked on several short films. Hartland stars as Aidan, the family’s not-so-charismatic leader; Jared Rogers as ambitious filmmaker Norman; Kaitlyn Reynell as Aidan’s girlfriend and literal partner in crime, Claire; and Octavia Gilmore as Amy, one of the family’s first and best recruits.

The horror comedy premiered at FrightFest and has been featured at critically acclaimed horror festivals around the world, including Popcorn Frights, Panic Fest, Telluride Horror Show and Grimmfest. The film was also named Best Sci-fi/Horror Feature at the London Independent Film Festival 2022.

When the screaming starts currently sits at 100% on Rotten Tomatoes, with Dread Central exclaiming, “When the screaming starts is a laughably funny dark comedy, and the film breathes a lot of life back into the mockumentary subgenre.”

Screen Zealots stated it’s “a clever, disturbing serial killer mockumentary that provides a penetrating commentary on the world we live in,” adding that “it’s also damn hilarious.”

Taking the fandom of true crime and turning it into a Charles Manson-inspired comedy sounds risky, but writer/director Conor Boru finds an interesting mix of dark humor, gore and social commentary to make. When the screaming starts enjoyable,” writes Nightmarish Conjurings.

Scariest Things hypes, “When the screaming starts goes from a deadpan comedy to a full-blown horror film with a twist that will satisfy the most jaded fan,” while Flickering Myth adds, “This witty, stylistically sharp mock-doc marks the arrival of a talented movie voice in Conor Boru.”

The film was produced by Boru, Hartland and Rogers along with Dom Lenoir. Executive producers include Gilmore, Yasen Atour and Kavé Niku.

“Of all the genres that merge with horror, none is as seamless as comedy,” said Bloody Disgusting Managing Director Brad Miska. “Horror and comedy are like two sides of the same coin, which is why fans of both have embraced this subgenre so easily. When the screaming starts is the perfect combination of humor and horror. To be Shaun of the Dead meets Lumbar punctureand we know fans are going to eat it.”

“I am so proud to be a part of this film,” added Mark Padilla, SVP Sales and Acquisitions at Double Dutch International. “With the popularity of true crime documents and podcasts, When the screaming starts perfectly suits the appetite of the crowd. It’s a wild ride from start to finish. The filmmakers and the entire cast have done a fantastic job.”

The deal was negotiated by Padilla and Brandon Hill, Acquisitions Manager, on behalf of Cinedigm.
