The 2013 Sundance Film Festival recently ended, and a pair of noteworthy horror movies that showed there got picked up by US distributors:

  • S-VHS, the quickly produced sequel to last year's found footage anthology V/H/S, was nabbed by Magnolia Pictures and, like its predecessor, will likely be distributed through its genre arm, Magnet Releasing.
  • We Are What We Are, a remake of the 2010 Mexican film of the same name about a family of urban cannibals, was bought by Entertainment One (eOne). It is directed by up-and-coming horror filmmaker Jim Mickle, who has impressed with his first two efforts, Mulberry Street and Stake Land

Expect both movies to have a limited theatrical run before heading to home video.

Meanwhile, a film that showed in last year's Sundance fest, the documentary Room 237, which delves into the myriad of fascinating interpretations of Stanley Kubrick's The Shining, was given a March 29 limited theatrical release date by IFC Films.
