‘Finale’ to get U.S. release

Image takes North American rights to Jinga's horror pic

LONDON — Image Ent. has acquired all North American rights to Jinga Films’ supernatural horror “Finale.”

Described as an homage to Dario Argento’s “Suspiria,” John Michael Elfers’ debut feature stars Carolyn Von Hauck as a grieving mother who discovers that her deceased son had been dabbling in black magic.

Image has skedded the release for May.

Jinga also has closed a package deal with HBO Central Europe for five U.K. horror pics, including Johnny Kevorkian’s “The Disappeared,” Lawrence Gough’s “Salvage,” Andy Thompson’s “The Scar Crow” and Julian Richards’ “Summer Scars.”

On Monday, Jinga announced it had added Federico Zampaglione’s psychological horror “Shadow” to its Berlin market slate.

Produced by Massimo Ferrero, the English-language Italian horror pic stars Jake Muxworthy (“Borderland”), Karina Testa (“Frontiere”), Chris Coppola (“Friday 13th”) and Nuot Arquint (“The Passion of Christ”).

Pic centers on an American Iraq War vet whose romantic vacation in the Italian Alps turns into a “Deliverance”-style nightmare after a confrontation with local hunters.
