‘Holidays’ Horror Anthology Grabbed for Release In Advance of Tribeca Film Festival Premiere

“Holidays,” the horror anthology that includes material from Kevin Smith, has been picked up for a day-and-date release from Vertical Entertainment and XYZ Films, an acquisition made in advance of the feature’s premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on April 14.

Vertical and XYZ will capitalize on the publicity from the debut screening at Tribeca to release the movie on digital and VOD on April 15, with a limited theatrical release set for April 22.

The stories collected in “Holidays” put a scary spin on annual holidays like Halloween, Valentine’s Day, Labor Day and Mother’s Day. The team of directors involved includes Smith, Gary Shore, Scott Stewart and Sarah Adina Smith. John Hegeman’s Distant Corner Entertainment produces with XYZ.

At Tribeca, “Holidays” will open the Midnight section of genre films. The festival’s Virtual Arcade area of new-media programming will also include virtual reality offering “H0lidays: Christmas VR,” which is linked to the Christmas segment in the feature.

XYZ, an independent production company and sales agency, and distributor and marketer Vertical team up for the release. The two companies have also collaborated on Asian action film “Headshot,” featuring “Raid” star Iko Uwais, and Sundance horror title “Under the Shadow.”
