After forming the band Powerman 5000 and following his brother into the music business, Spider One has now followed Rob into filmmaking. As you may have noticed, we’re not exactly fans of Mr. Zombies films around here, so hopefully, Spider shows a bit more talent. No word yet if the monsters manifested in the film include singing spiders, but it does look like there may be a zombie.
LOS ANGELES, April 27, 2022 – RLJE Films, a business unit of AMC Networks, and Shudder, AMC Networks’ streaming service for horror, thriller and the supernatural have acquired the North American rights to the horror film, ALLEGORIA, ahead of its world premiere at Panic Fest. The film will be released on VOD, Digital and streaming on Shudder on August 2, 2022.
Written by Spider One, who also makes his directorial debut with ALLEGORIA, the film stars Krsy Fox (Frank, I Live Alone), Adam Busch (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”, Dave Made a Maze), Bryce Johnson (“Pretty Little Liars”, Willow Creek) and Scout Compton (Halloween, The Long Night).
“Collaborating with emerging filmmakers/artists like Spider One is a top priority for us,” said Mark Ward, Chief Acquisitions Officer of RLJE Films. “We couldn’t be more proud to debut his first film. He is a great talent with a unique vision.”
In ALLEGORIA, a group of artists’ lives become unwittingly entangled as their obsessions and insecurities manifest monsters, demons and death.
ALLEGORIA was produced by OneFox Productions. Ward and Betsy Rogers from RLJE Films negotiated the deal with Dan Rozenblum from 33 & West Talent Agency on behalf of the filmmakers.
