Lorber snags two docs

Two features center on exploitation, horror films

Lorber Films has picked up “American Grindhouse” and “Nightmares in Red, White and Blue,” a pair of documentary features about the seamy side of U.S. filmmaking, for theatrical and DVD release.

“Grindhouse,” helmed and co-written by Elijah Drenner, follows the history of exploitation pics, while “Nightmares,” directed by Andrew Monument and written by Joseph Maddrey (based on his book), looks at the ways horror films reflect the times in which they’re made.

The two docs unspooled at fests including SXSW, Sitges and Deauville.

Screenings are planned for other theatrical venues, fests and colleges in June for “Grindhouse” and July for “Nightmares.”

DVD release follows later this year and early in 2011.

Acquisition deal was negotiated by Lorber’s Richard Lorber and Elizabeth Sheldon with Lux Digital Pictures, the producer and financier of both films.

Also on the slate of upcoming releases for Lorber is WWII drama “Army of Crime.”
