EXCLUSIVE: SP Releasing has acquired worldwide rights to the psychological thriller Nightshade, starring Lou Ferrigno Jr. (S.W.A.T.), Dina Meyer (Starship Troopers) and Jason Patric (Wayward Pines), with plans to launch it in theaters throughout North America and on VOD platforms on January 4.

The movie directed by Landon Williams watches as a murder detective (Ferrigno Jr.) on the hunt for a serial killer experiences a sequence of disturbing goals, which lead him to hunt hypnotherapy and assistance from a psychiatrist (Meyer). The therapy reveals plain parallels between his nightmares and the murders, setting him right into a tailspin of paranoia and mistrust.

Tim Russ (Star Trek: Voyager), B.J. Britt (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), James Duval (Donnie Darko), Kenzie Dalton (Driven) and Jaime Gallagher (Pandemic) additionally star within the pic from Primitive Mind Productions, Audacious Dreamer Productions and Blue Bow Tie Productions. Williams, Ferrigno Jr. and Gallagher produced alongside Sarah Smith-Williams, Casey Krehbiel and Forest Robin, with Carlos Sanchez exec producing.

“We are thrilled to release Nightshade,” stated SP Releasing CEO and President Steven Paul. “It’s a really great psychological noir-thriller with a tremendous cast.”

“I’m excited to get Nightshade out there through SP distribution,” added Williams. “I hope the audience pays close attention to the details – most viewers have not been able to guess the ending so far.”

Jason Price negotiated the Nightshade acquisition on behalf of the indie distributor with John W. Bosher and Chris Charles at Throughline Films.
