Leading Genre Director Adrián García Bogliano
Oh no... I'm in a Bogliano film. I'm in for it!!
MPI Media Group today announced it has acquired all North American rights to COLD SWEAT, a new horror film featuring a pair of villains who raise the bar in cinematic evil. A sensation at the South By Southwest film festival, the film, directed by Adrián García Bogliano, will receive a theatrical release in fall 2011, to be followed by DVD and Video on Demand availability.
COLD SWEAT (Sudor Frio) is a co-production of Pampa Films, a leading studio in Argentina, and indie house Paura Flics. Pampa’s previous productions include the local box-office hits The Signal and The Legend. The COLD SWEAT distribution deal was negotiated by Greg Newman, executive vice president of MPI Media Group, and Antonio Riopredre of Pampa.
Of García Bogliano’s latest stylistic triumph, MPI’s Greg Newman said: “Adrian has been making innovative films for over a decade, and with COLD SWEAT he has delivered a highly original and unforgettable entry in the horror genre. This film is a pure crowd pleaser.”
