We have just learned that Artsploitation has acquired the Belgian horror film CUB for distribution. They will be releasing the film theatrically and on DVD and VOD. It’s being speculated that the feature will see release this summer.
The feature made its world premier as part of the Toronto International Film Festival’s Midnight Madness lineup in September of last year.
Cub is directed by Jonas Govaerts in his feature film directorial debut and co-written by Govaerts and Roel Mondelaers. This marks Mondelaers’ first feature film as well. It stars Evelien Bosmans, Titus De Voogdt.
