Osiris Entertainment Film Distribution collaborates with Regal Cinemas to release the company’s first theatrical film, Bloodline. The fantasy thriller is slated to premiere late September in markets such as Los Angeles and Sacramento, CA.
Produced by and starring Sacramento native and award-winning director Matt Thompson, Bloodline is the first theatrical release for Osiris Entertainment. Thompson is originally from Roseville, CA, and directed the award-winning Listen to Your Heart (2010), starring Cybill Shepherd. The young producer and his talents hit his hometown again as Bloodline will feature in five Regal Cinemas throughout the Sacramento region in late September 2013.
Shot and filmed in the Eldorado National Forest of Sacramento, Bloodline uncovers the eerie past and life of Brett Ethos (Matt Thompson). A young seminary student inching toward a priestly life, Brett falls away from the church as his curiosities entice him to indulge in worldly pleasures, ultimately leading to the relentless realities of his identity. Tempted to unmask the hidden mirrors of his past, fear consumes him at the site of the haunting reflections, as self-discovery becomes the most terrifying journey of all. Truth is discovered, blood is tainted, and darkness pollutes their fate; Brett puts his own life and the lives around him in an immense danger as he is torn between his faith and his curse.
“We are excited to work with a young and successful director such as Matt,” says Osiris Entertainment CEO Evan Crooke. “As a filmmaker myself, I recognize his talent and ambition towards a genuinely shared passion, which is displayed through his work, especially Bloodline.”
Bloodline also stars Kimberly Alexander ("NCIS"), Grainger Hines (Lincoln), Jesse Kristofferson ("Melrose Place"), Gina Comparetto ("How I Met Your Mother"), and Christopher Frontiero ("Parks and Recreation").
