Los Angeles, Aug. 23, 2016
Following its successful festival run, limited release in Landmark Theatres and screening at the 2016 Berlinale European Film Market (EFM), award-winning indie thriller The Scarapist is now available on Video On Demand (VOD) in select markets, on platforms including iTunes, Amazon, Google Play, Vimeo and more. A DVD release is scheduled for later this year.
The Scarapist is based on a shocking and horrifying true story of therapist abuse. It won best picture from the Verein Deutscher Kritiker Und Filmemacher, or VDKUF, at the 2016 Berlinale EFM.
Due to the traumatic nature of its content, and the authentic emotional landscape and real-life situations represented, the filmmakers have added the following trigger warning: “This film, based on a true story, depicts actual events, and has been known to cause disturbances and even psychotic reactions. Viewer discretion is advised.”
Co-directed by Jeanne Marie Spicuzza, who also penned the screenplay, and Synthian Sharp, The Scarapist stars Spicuzza, Katy Colloton of TV Land’s Teachers and R. Michael Gull. Spicuzza, David Spicuzza and Marjorie Spicuzza are executive producers, with Shari Hamrick as consulting producer.
In the wake of the VOD release of The Scarapist, Spicuzza is prepping for her next feature, Night Rain, also a thriller. Night Rain, which recently ran a successful crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo, is slated for production in fall of 2016 in Los Angeles.
