Anchor Bay Grab 'Monster Slayer'

Friday, January 25th, 2008

Straight out of Slamdance, Anchor Bay Entertainment has picked up U.S. distribution rights to Jon Knautz's horror comedy "Jack Brooks: Monster Slayer" in a mid-six-figure deal with a theatrical commitment.

"Slayer" premiered Saturday at Slamdance, a growing market for edgier fare than that other Park City fest. The film (featuring "Nightmare on Elm Street" star Robert Englund) tells the story of a teen (Trevor Matthews) who is haunted by the murder of his parents.

Throwing Style: rhbhYears Playing: 1Average Distance: 450 ft A really sweet freibse. Very similar to a destroyer in flight. I have a pop top 175 one that is pretty overstable. It is great into the wind and forehand. I crush it flat and does a perfect 425 ft hyzer shot. I also have a flatter one that I can turn over a bit, and it will flex back late in the flight for a max distance 450 ft shot. Great freibses that you should check out.Was this helpful? 0 0
