Magnet picks up ‘House of the Devil’

Horror film homage to debut at Halloween

Magnolia Pictures’ genre division Magnet Releasing has picked up U.S. rights to Ti West’s “The House of the Devil.”

The label will bow “Devil” in theaters at Halloween. It will also make the pic available via video-on-demand in late September to give horror fans an early peek.

West (“The Roost”) wrote, directed and edited “Devil,” an homage to 1980s horror films that premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival. It stars Jocelin Donahue, Greta Gerwig, Tom Noonan and Mary Woronov.

Pic’s producers are Roger Kass, Josh Braun, Larry Fessenden and Peter Phok.

Among Magnet’s upcoming releases are “Ong Bak 2,” “Bronson” and John Woo’s “Red Cliff.”

Distrib is part of a vertically integrated group of media properties co-owned by Todd Wagner and Mark Cuban that includes Landmark Theaters and high-def cable networks HDNet and HDNet Movies.
