“Being Human” – Werewolves, Vampires, and Ghosts! Four Seasons Streaming Right Now on SCREAMBOX!

Bloody Disgusting and Cineverse are raising the dead with celebrated zombie drama The Funeral, acquired out of Berlin International Film Festival (Berlinale) for North America with plans to release the film this fall across all platforms, including its Bloody Disgusting-powered SCREAMBOX streaming service.

The news was first reported by Variety this morning.

The Funeral stars popular Turkish actor Ahmet Rifat Sungar (The Wild Pear Tree, Actress) as a solitary hearse driver who is driving the body of a young murder victim back to her family in the East of the country.

“One night, he opens the back doors of the hearse to find the dead girl making strange grunting noises. He is immediately captivated by her beauty and falls in love.

“Together, they set off on a mission to avenge her death, leaving a trail of corpses in their wake. Rising young actress Cansu Türedi plays the dead girl.”

Turkish director Orçun Behram (The Antenna) returns to the genre with The Funeral.

The Funeral has already made waves at prestigious film festivals, including Motel X, Beyond Fest, Sitges, Leeds IFF, Cottbus IFF, Imagine FF, Fancine Málaga, Terror Molins, Buenos Aires Rojo Sangre, and Gérardmer IFFF.

Behram produced with Müge Özen.

The Funeral is a captivating zombie love story with serious bite,” said Brad Miska, VP of horror content at SCREAMBOX. “This fall, this festival gem will give SCREAMBOX subscribers a brutal one-two punch alongside our must-see undead splatter comedy We Are Zombies!” 

The deal was negotiated by Brandon Hill, Director of Acquisitions, on behalf of Cineverse, Matteo Lovadina at Reel Suspects, and Pip Ngo of XYZ Films.

The Funeral will join SCREAMBOX’s growing library of unique horror content, including Onyx the Fortuitous and the Talisman of Souls, Here for Blood, Terrifier 2, RoboDoc: The Creation of RoboCop, Hollywood Dreams & Nightmares: The Robert Englund Story, The Outwaters, Living with Chucky, Project Wolf Hunting, Pennywise: The Story of IT, and hundreds more.
