Illusion Unlimited, Njuta nab ‘Bunny Game’

'Challenging and confrontational' film picks up distribution

Germany’s Illusion Unlimited and Scandinavia’s Njuta have both acquired distribution rights to Adam Rehmeiers horror pic “The Bunny Game.”

Pic, which is being shopped at AFM by U.K. genre sales outfit Jinga Films, tells the story of a drug addicted hooker who is held captive in the desert by a deranged trucker.

It stars Rodleen Getsic and Jeff Renfro.

Last month, the British Board of Film Classification (akin to MPAA) refused to classify “The Bunny Game,” preventing its U.K. distrib Trinity Entertainment from releasing the pic in the territory.

Mark Sandell, co-director of Trinity, who picked up the film in Cannes earlier this year said that while the film was “challenging and confrontational” Rehmeier had “a highly original filmic eye.”

“We did imagine that the BBFC might ask for cuts but an outright ban gives the film a twisted notoriety that, quite frankly, it doesn’t warrant,” he said.

Jinga Films previously shopped uber-controversial “A Serbian Film” to the market.

Outfit hopes to close a U.S. deal for “The Bunny Game” in Santa Monica this week.
