Indie studio Full Moon Releasing, best known for its “Puppetmaster” and “Subspecies” pic franchises, is expanding into the acquisition and distribution of direct-to-video horror, sci-fi and fantasy films.
Outside projects will be released under a new label, Pulp Fantasy, and sold to mainstream video stores for rental and sell-through. They will also be available through various e-tailers and Full Moon’s Web site.
Karen Lee Brown, who currently serves as exec VP of development, will be responsible for identifying and acquiring the new genre pics for Pulp Fantasy.
“I’m excited by the opportunity this endeavor offers emerging talent,” said Full Moon chairman Charles Band. “It will be a new challenge to identify and introduce creative voices to Full Moon fans through the Pulp Fantasy label.”
