Fresh off its Best Horror Feature win at the New York City International Film Festival, "Exscind," will be holding a PRE-SALE for DVDs. EVERY DVD purchase will also include a FREE HD DIGITAL DOWNLOAD!
The horror film, produced by Grand Forks-based Fat Cat Productions, follows a group of paranormal investigators as they turn their attention to a house made notorious for the violent murders committed there 50 years prior. Things turn south for the investigators as day turns into night. As the film's tagline says, "Some things are better left alone." "Exscind," which clocks in with a running time of one hour and 20 minutes, does not have an MPAA rating, but the poster says it "has not been rated R yet," due to the film's strong language and violence.
Grand Forks native Les Sholes, who co-owns Fat Cat Productions with his wife, Donna Wolfe-Sholes, wrote and directed "Exscind." The film stars Robert Simon, Amy Byzewski, Mark Diers, Louie Babcock and Eric Goodrie, among others.
The movie is about a group of four amateur paranormal investigators in Minnesota who read in a magazine about multiple murders that took place 50 years ago in a remote area of rural North Dakota.
The killers never were apprehended, but members of a family who went missing from the area after the crime occurred were presumed to have been the murderers. The paranormal team travels 300 miles from Minnesota to the North Dakota farmhouse to see if they can detect any evidence of paranormal activity linked to the crime and the horror of what this community went through. Les Sholes' goal is to produce a realistic film that transcends the "fake" filmmaking practices which have typified horror films. "If you were really in a paranormal encounter, you'd drop the camera and run like hell to get out of there," he said. To underscore the feeling of a "reality shoot," he strapped a camera to the actor's body for certain scenes.
Exscind is a fully produced feature length film that has been an Official Selection into the Miami International Film Festival, the New York City International Film Festival, and has been shown at the Marche Du Film in Cannes, France.
