American World Pictures get assortment

'Surf School,' 'Cult' on the slate

American World Pictures has acquired worldwide distribution rights to an assortment of films, many of which are debuting at the Cannes market.

Teen comedy “Surf School,” written and directed by Joel Silverman, stars Harland Williams (“Dumb and Dumber”), Ryan Carnes (“Desperate Housewives”) and Corey Sevier (“CSI: Miami) as Laguna Beach High outsiders who crash an elite surf contest.

Sci-fi thriller “Cult,” starring Taryn Manning (“Hustle and Flow”) and Rachel Miner (“CSI”), centers on college students who discover a soul-snatching force.

In “Horror House,” college boys go to a whore house looking for a good time and find something else; “Drive-Thru” follows a student who discovers a connection to a serial killer.

Jason Connery, son of Sean Connery, stars in “Night Skies,” based on the true story of a 1997 UFO sighting.

In “Surveillance,” Armand Assante plays an obsessive department store security guard; in “River”s End,” Sam Huntingon (“Superman Returns”) plays a troubled teen running from the law.
