Girl power gets gory in KILLER KATE!, which Freestyle Digital Media has picked up for North American distribution. Release details and more can be found past the jump.

Freestyle will send KILLER KATE! to select theaters as well as VOD and digital HD October 26. The film was directed by Elliot Feld from a script he wrote with Daniel Moya, and stars Danielle Burgess, horror mainstay Tiffany Shepis and Alexandra Feld. KILLER KATE! is our love letter to the early films of John Carpenter,” Elliot Feld says. “It’s a fun flick, with a cool cast and a rad ’80s synth score. We couldn’t be more excited to have Freestyle on board!” The synopsis: “Estranged sisters Kate and Angie haven’t spoken since Angie went to college and left Kate to care for their ailing father. In a show of reconciliation, several years after moving out, Angie invites Kate to her bachelorette party held at a remote house booked on a home-sharing app. The women are unaware that by booking this house, they’re walking into a trap set in motion by a disturbed family of amateur killers who are out for blood to right a cosmic wrong. They soon become unwitting participants in a savage and often ridiculous life-or-death struggle that pits family against family, and past against present.”
