Chad A. Verdi, the producer and CEO stated, “It’s a great feeling to be able to reach over 100 million homes with a VOD release like these films have received. It’s truly a filmmaker’s dream come true.” Verdi added, “I am very proud of both my directors, Glenn Ciano and Tom DeNucci, for their hard work and dedication to the projects. It paid off big time.” We look forward to checking these two flicks out.
From the Press Release
Infected, a horror/zombie thriller set in the woods of New England, centers around Louis, an absentee father (Michael Madsen) and his son, Andrew (Tom DeNucci), who must fight for survival when their small, close-knit hunting group becomes infected with a virus that originated from a rabid deer they killed and consumed. This infection causes the crew, including Doctor Denehey (William Forsythe), to become homicidal and violent and gives them an insatiable, cannibalistic thirst for humans. In this modern day Night of The Living Dead, the father and son duo are forced to relinquish old friendships as their former hunting buddies become…Infected.
Self-Storage, written by Rhode Island actor/writer/producer Tom DeNucci, tells the story of Jake, the night watchman working at a highly secured self-storage facility. His pals are home from college and looking to party. Jake (Tom DeNucci) invites them to his work for a fiesta of his own. Innocent mischief turns a naughty night of sex, drugs and rock and roll into an evening of pure terror. Barbed wire fences are meant to keep people OUT. But these fences keep people IN. Eric Roberts plays the role of Walter, a former black operative with an evil secret. Walter, along with his faithful brother at arms, Trevor (Michael Berryman), has some unfinished business with a seedy underworld grifter, Jonah (Jonathan Silverman). Black market business mixes with pleasure when Jake and his pals stumble upon this heinous covert operation.
Screen Media Films of NY acquired both films from Verdi and recently entered into a four-picture deal. Verdi and SMF will both approve all scripts and cast members prior to filming. Then Verdi, through his companies The Woodhaven Production company/Verdi Productions will produce the films. Upon the delivery of each film, SMF will acquire all worldwide rights. Verdi stated, “It’s a win-win for both companies. We are making films knowing they are already sold and have distribution while SMF receives a constant flow of films for their pipeline.” Verdi added, “Our goal is to produce all four films in Rhode Island.”
