WTF moves in ‘House,’ ‘Chop’

Stephanides' new sales house centers on genre pics

Dimitri Stephanides’ WTF has acquired international sales rights to “The Bleeding House” and “Chop.”

The new Paris-based sales house specializes in genre films and will rep titles that have strong international potential, explained Stephanides. He worked as senior VP of sales at TF1 Intl. for seven years where he developed connections with buyers handling sales on pics including “Caged,” “Mutants” and “Hobo With a Shotgun.”

A Southern horror tale, helmer Philip Gelatt’s “The Bleeding House” was released in the U.S. in April by Tribeca Films.

Helmed by Trent Haaga (“Deadgirl”) and penned by Adam Minarovich (“The Walking Dead”), “Chop” was picked up by Bloody Disgusting Selects in the U.S.

” ‘Chop’ is a wild ride evoking the ‘Saw’ movies, transposed to a comic Californian setting,” said Stephanides.

At AFM, WTF is also shopping Michael Biehn’s grindhouse horror pic “The Victim,” which preemed at Sitges in Spain this year.
