Gravitas Ventures has acquired US rights to distribute Don’t Look Back. Written and directed by genre veteran and Final Destination creator-writer Jeffrey Reddick, Don’t Look Back will be released in theaters and on demand on October 16, 2020.
Don’t Look Back stars Kourtney Bell, Bryan Batt, Will Stout, Skyler Hart, Jeremy Holm, Jaqueline Fleming, Amanda Grace Benitez, Damon Lipari, Han Soto, Dean J. West and Stephen Twardokus, and is produced by Andrew van den Houten, p.g.a., Andy Steinman, p.g.a., Roman Dent, and Ashleigh Snead.
Gravitas Ventures and independent film production company Kamikaze Dogfight have jointly acquired the rights, as part of their multi-picture output deal announced earlier this year.
In Don’t Look Back, Caitlin Kramer, a woman overcoming a tragic past, is among several people who see a man being fatally assaulted. When the witnesses start dying mysteriously, she must unearth if they’re being targeted by a killer or something far more insidious.
Jeffrey Reddick said: “As someone who is deeply troubled by the real-life stories of people watching others being hurt, or killed, and filming these assaults instead of helping, I wanted to explore the themes of apathy and our lack of empathy in a mystery/horror film. ”
Han Soto, Partner Kamikaze Dogfight said: “I’ve had the privilege of watching Jeffrey craft this masterpiece from the inside out. Don’t Look Back is a testament to Jeffrey’s evolution as a creative mastermind. Under his cognizance of apathy and our lack of empathy as a species comes questions of anguish, remorse and behaving in a virtuous manner. This movie will affect you whether you want it to or not. Don’t Look Back is a movie made for everyone.”
“As he did with Final Destination, Jeffrey has created a terrifying framework for his characters to meet a gruesome end, and in doing so issues a timely warning against standing idly by while others suffer,” said Tony Piantedosi, Vice President of Acquisitions at Gravitas Ventures.
Gravitas Ventures Vice President of Acquisitions, Tony Piantedosi negotiated the deal with 79th & Broadway Entertainment’s Andrew van den Houten.
