For Immediate Release
Los Angeles – Building momentum heading into MIPTV, BoPaul Media Worldwide announces three licensing agreements for its vintage films – two in Germany and one in the United Kingdom.
In Germany, the hit teen comedy trilogy “Porky’s,” “Porky’s: The Next Day”, and “Porky’s Revenge,” and “Seven” – all released originally by major U.S. studios and since upconverted to HD — were sold to Morefilms for pay TV rights, and six Paul Naschy-starring horror titles to Subkultur Entertainment for home video/VOD rights. The sales were announced by Monique R. Nayard, BMW’s senior sales executive.
The Naschy titles, four of which have been upconverted to HD, include: “A Dragonfly for Each Corpse”, “Vengeance of the Zombies”, “Horror Rises from the Tomb”, “Night of the Werewolf”, “Blue Eyes of the Broken Doll” and “The Devil’s Possessed.” Last year, Subkultur had bought from BMW the same rights to the recently-produced bio doc on Naschy entitled “The Man Who Saw Frankenstein Cry” featuring iconic directors John Landis and Joe Dante. Subkultur is planning to release a special Naschy DVD box set later this year.
“The Visitor”, produced and directed by Italy’s Ovidio Assonitis, was licensed for home video/DVD rights to Arrow Films in the UK.
