From the Press Release:

Austin, TX | April 16, 2019 – 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 Shout!

This is AGFA’s latest collaboration following their distribution partnerships with home video labels Arrow Films (DONNIE DARKO), Severin Films (SANTA SANGRE), and Vinegar Syndrome (DOLEMITE).

“We could not be more thrilled about this partnership,” said AGFA Head of Business Affairs Alicia Coombs. “Shout! Factory’s catalog is so diverse, and every title is a winner — both for us as fans, and for the cinema-going public.”

AGFA has curated fifty stunning classics from Shout’s movie catalog to reissue in theaters throughout the year. Thesemovies include fan favorites such as Bob Clark’s BLACK CHRISTMAS, arthouse milestones like John Cassavetes’ A WOMAN UNDER THE INFLUENCE, deep-cut horror blasts such as Amy Holden Jones’s THE SLUMBER PARTY MASSACRE, and seminalgenre milestones like John Ford’s STAGECOACH.

“I greatly admire the care and attention afforded each film by AGFA,” said Mark Balsam of Shout! Factory. “That focus will serve each of these classic films wonderfully.”
