"Brilliant… The Scout is a fun, well-acted and enjoyable entry into the slasher sweepstakes." - Michael Klug of Tom Holland's Terror Time
LOS ANGELES, CA, June 08, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Darkart Entertainment and Michael Kallio are proud to announce the DVD release of The Scout, a brand new found footage/slasher film starring Anastasia Elfman, Jessica Moore, Eric Marq, Ken Guertin, Marla Lizbeth Perez, Derrick Zonca and co-written and directed by Michael Kallio. Sector 5 is handling the DVD with streaming distribution being handled by 1091.
The Scout is the story of an independent film crew, when on a group location scout, are attacked by a mysterious masked killer, who appears "hell-bent" on murdering them one by one.
Anastasia Elfman stars in The Scout, a follow-up to her recent films, Aliens, Clowns and Geeks and Bloody Bridget. Cult filmmaker, Richard Elfman, directed both of Anastasia's previous films. The Scout also features appearances by Carl Crew (1986's cult classic, Blood Diner) and The Radioactive Chicken Heads, a Santa Ana based band that also performs in Elfman's Bloody Bridget. The film was created on "a budget that made shoe-strings seem expensive," says filmmaker, Michael Kallio. "It was as micro-budget as micro-budget can get." The Scout was executive produced by James Cullen Bressack and Warren Croyle. It premiered at Screamfest Horror Film Festival in October of 2021.
"The cast is great…" and "... definitely worth a watch." – Josh Burns of pophorror.com
