9.6 Uncork’d Entertainment Takes John Portanova's 'Hunting Grounds':




Press Release: Uncork’d Entertainment is set to distribute the award-winning creature feature HUNTING GROUNDS, sales agent High Octane Pictures has announced.

Winner of Best Sci-Fi Horror Film at the Toronto Independent Film Festival 2015, writer-director John Portanova’s acclaimed film sees a fractured family forced to go up against an angry clan of Bigfoot.

Festival audiences and horror critics have gone crazy for the story of a father and son who move to an old cabin in the woods after a devastating tragedy, only to unearth a tribe of Sasquatch.

Galen Christy, head of High Octane Pictures, says, “We are so excited to be working with Uncork’d Entertainment again. They are a fantastic, solid company; and we know that the film will be in good hands with them.”

Keith Leopard, president of Uncork’d Entertainment, adds, “Being from the Pacific Northwest, I’ve always been fascinated with the legend. John’s movie offers such a great take on the subject; I think audiences will love it!”

Written and directed by John Portanova and produced by horror label The October People, HUNTING GROUNDS stars Miles Joris-Peyrafitte, Jason Vail, David Saucedo, D’Angelo Midili, and Bill Oberst, Jr.

Uncork’d Entertainment will distribute film domestically with a release date to be announced shortly.
