Grindstone Entertainment ready to ‘Feed’

Company acquires N. American rights to horror pic

Grindstone Entertainment Group has acquired North American rights to horror movie “Dark Feed,” Michael Rasmussen and Shawn Rasmussen’s directorial debut.

Recreation is selling international rights at the American Film Market. Lionsgate Home Entertainment will handle the domestic release.

The Rasmussen Brothers produced the film along with Glenn Cooper, Roger Danchik and Jon Huberman. “Dark Feed” was shot in Boston using some of the locations in “Shutter Island.”

Story, penned by the brothers, centers on a group of young professionals being terrorized while working in an abandoned psychiatric hospital when it appears that insanity is spreading among them like a virus. The Rasmussens also wrote “John Carpenter’s The Ward.”

Stan Wertlieb and Grindstone’s Christy Cannon negotiated on behalf of Grindstone. Legal negotiations and services for Eastgate were provided by Shelley Surpin of Surpin & Mayersohn.
