Canadian horror ‘The Blackburn Asylum’ heads to VOD




Raven Banner is set to release the Canadian survival thriller featuring the Soska Sisters THE BLACKBURN ASYLUM. The feature will be released above the border this week on multiple VOD outlets. THE BLACKBURN ASYLUM follows a group who is stranded in an old asylum when some eerie and dreadful things start to happen. Rent it on demand starting tomorrow December 13th.

Canadian distributor and sales agent Raven Banner Entertainment has just announced that Blackburn, renamed The Blackburn Asylum, will be launched in Canada, this December. The film was shot at Britannia Beach, British Columbia, just north of Vancouver, by long-time stunt co-ordinator Lauro Chartrand. The film stars the Soska Sisters (Jen and Sylvia, “Hellevator”), long time Canadian actor Lochlyn Munro (Poker Night), Emilie Ullerup (A Little Bit Zombie), Sarah Lind and Calum Worthy. All of the Canadian launch details are hosted here.



This 3Brane Entertainment production involves several college friends, on a road trip. Near a remote town, they experience a rockslide, which forces them to take shelter in an old asylum. Inside, they find that there are strange characters lurking in the shadows. And, these deformed creatures will set the screen alight!


The Blackburn Asylum will see a wide release, in Canada, mid-December. The film is already available on iTunes and on Shaw-on-demand, in this territory. It will see many more screens, on December 13th, via the Playstation Network and XBox Video, also in Canada. The film will launch in more territories, shortly after. Canadian fans can take a look at one of the best horror films of the year, which the UK Horror Scene called “a fun thrill ride,” now!
