Filmax Intl. howls with Gauls

Co. sells Parello's werewolf pic 'Romasanta'

MADRID — Filmax Intl., the sales arm of Spanish company Filmax, has sold werewolf period pic “Romasanta,” helmed by Chuck Parello (“Ed Gein”), to France’s Film Office.

Sale tops a prolific raft of licensing deals for Filmax. Among its Spanish-lingo titles, “The Heart of the Warrior,” “Compassionate Sex” and “Manolito Gafotas” have been licensed to U.S. Spanish-lingo broadcaster Univision.

Feeding the large appetite in world markets for English-lingo horror pics, Filmax Intl. has finalized a six-pic deal with Italy’s Eagle Pictures, beginning with James Balaguero’s “Darkness,” a Dimension pickup for the U.S. Filmax has also closed Brian Yuzna’s “Faust” and Jack Sholder’s “Arachnid” with Imagine Entertainment in Australia. Stuart Gordon’s “Dagon” has gone to the U.K.’s Metrodome and Scandinavia’s Scanbox.

At last month’s AFM, Filmax finalized pre-sales with new French distrib shingle Wild Side Films on two English-lingo titles: Nacho Cerda’s “Oblivion” and Paco Plaza’s “Second Name.”

A prolific producer-distributor, Filmax owns specialty genre label the Fantastic Factory. It also operates Fantastic Discovery, which is a label for new directors, as well as established helmer brand Fantastic Masters.
