CONTENT CANADA: Fox Entertainment’s AVoD platform Tubi is continuing its originals push with two horror films produced by Incendo in Montreal.

The projects are Marry F*** Kill, an original film written by Ian Carpenter and Aaron Martin (Terror Train), as well as The Amityville Curse, an adaptation of Hans Holzer’s iconic novel from the successful franchise, scripted by Dennis Heaton (Motive).

Incendo is in pre-production in Montreal on the films and will also distribute them internationally, with Tubi taking rights in the US.

Marry F*** Kill sees five estranged college friends reunite to attend their friend’s funeral after her shocking death by suicide. Scarred by a past betrayal that led to the ultimate demise of their friendship, an innocent game spawns into something far more sinister than they could have imagined. Caroline Labrèche (Rule of 3) is attached to direct.

Based on the book of the same name, the new adaptation of The Amityville Curse will take on a different perspective to the 1990 direct-to-video film. With Incendo securing the underlying rights to the original novel from the estate, “fans can look forward to an authentic approach to capturing the gripping story of Holzer’s book,” the producer said.

Éric Tessier (You Will Remember Me) will direct the film, while the executive producers include author and Holzer’s daughter Alexandra Holzer.

Incendo and Tubi initially partnered earlier this year for a remake of cult classic film Terror Train, which will premiere October 21 in the US as a part of Tubi’s annual month-long Halloween inspired genre celebration, Terror on Tubi.

The news, which was announced at C21’s Content Canada event in Toronto, comes as Tubi grows its slate of original programming, which includes a host of animated series for adults, TV movies, docs and specials.

Brook Peters, managing director and senior VP of sales and production operations and executive producer at Incendo, said: “Both films not only contribute to Incendo’s content growth and diversity strategy, but also strengthen our evolving creative partnership with Tubi.”
