Shout! Studios has bought all North American distribution rights to Itsy Bitsy, including theatrical, broadcast, video-on-demand, and home entertainment rights for cross-platform releases in the U.S. and Canada.
Shout! Studios will launch the movie across multiple entertainment platforms beginning with a theatrical launch in 2019 through Shout’s genre entertainment imprint, Scream Factory.
“This is a horror film with legs, eight of them to be precise. It’s scary, stylish and disturbing in a very primal way, and it will have you double checking every space in your home for quite some time. So naturally we’re delighted to share the experience far and wide,” said Jordan Fields, Vice President of Acquisitions at Shout! Studios.
“Itsy Bitsy was love at first scare. The film pays homage to monster movies of the ‘80s, utilizing a creature most people find terrifying in small sizes, let alone as a giant cave spider. We’re thrilled to have partnered with Shout! Studios and look forward to delivering this bone-chilling story to audiences everywhere,” said Chris Charles, co-founder, Throughline Films.
‘Fear spins its web’
Itsy Bitsy is a 2018 American horror feature film directed by Micah Gallo from a screenplay co-written with Jason Alvino and Bryan Dick. The movie stars Elizabeth Roberts, Bruce Davison and Denise Crosby.
A single mother, Kara (Elizabeth Roberts), moves from New York to the quiet countryside with her two children for a job opportunity she can’t afford to turn down. The family moves into their humble new guesthouse. Kara begins her work as a private nurse to Walter (Bruce Davison), a man stricken with multiple sclerosis and an appraiser of rare antiquities with a secretive past.
Her teenage son, Jesse (Arman Darbo), is unhappy about this most of all. Losing his friends and moving to the middle of nowhere hasn’t made his job of looking after his little sister, Cambria (Chloe Perrin), any easier.
Doom precedes them. Akiba (Treva Etienne), a shady international associate of Walter’s, brings with him a mysterious relic of ancient origin. Kara has a run in with Sheriff Jane (Denise Crosby).
All too quickly they discover the relic contains more than just legends. Inside, waits a terrifying creature born of ancient darkness and pure instinct: a prehistoric cave spider unlike the modern world has ever seen.
