American Genre Film Archive and Full Moon Entertainment Announce Theatrical Distribution Partnership
American Genre Film Archive (AGFA) to debut twenty-five horror and cult films from Full Moon Entertainment in theaters.
Austin, Texas (January 15, 2020) – The American Genre Film Archive, the largest non-profit genre film archive and distributor in the world, is excited to announce a theatrical partnership with Full Moon Entertainment, the legendary genre film empire founded by filmmaker Charles Band. AGFA will distribute twenty-five films from Full Moon’s movie library to theaters. This is AGFA’s latest collaboration following their distribution partnerships with Arrow Films (“Donnie Darko”), Multicom (“Freeway”), Severin Films (“Santa Sangre”), Shout! Factory (“Black Christmas”), and Vinegar Syndrome (“Tammy And The T-Rex”).
“Full Moon is a beloved label with a huge following,” said AGFA Head of Business Affairs Alicia Coombs. “AGFA is thrilled to help bring these titles to theaters as a service both to long-time Full Moon fans and fans-to-be.”
AGFA has curated twenty-five films from Full Moon’s catalog to reissue in theaters. These movies include horror milestones such as “Tourist Trap”, iconic funblasts like “Puppet Master”, slasher essentials like “Intruder” (starring Sam Raimi), and cult favorite ragers such as “Trancers”.
