Kaleidoscope nabs ‘Seasoning House’

Paul Hyett film to open in Blighty next year

LONDON — Kaleidoscope Film Distribution has acquired U.K. thriller “The Seasoning House” for local distribution and worldwide rights.

The Sterling Pictures film, which opened Blighty’s FrightFest in August and recently played at the Sitges and San Sebastian fests, is the directorial debut of make-up and effects designer Paul Hyett (“The Descent,” “The Woman in Black”).

The expanding international sales outfit, launched in fall 2010, will release the film in Blighty in 2013. The company opens horror comedy “Stitches” nationwide in the U.K. Friday. Its biggest theatrical release to date came with 2011 thriller “A Lonely Place to Die,” which grossed £237,098 ($377,834) in the U.K./Ireland.

“The Seasoning House” follows a deaf mute orphan, living in a house where young girls are bought and sold for men’s pleasure, who sets out to exact revenge for the death of her friend. It stars Rosie Day, Sean Pertwee, Anna Walton and Kevin Howarth.

London-based Kaleidoscope will sell worldwide rights, excluding the U.K. and Ireland, at the American Film Market, which runs Oct. 31-Nov. 7.
