LOS ANGELES, Aug. 3, 2016 — Inception Media Group, LLC, a diversified media company specializing in the production, acquisition and distribution of entertainment content, has acquired the North American rights to seven new feature films for distribution across all platforms.
The films acquired by the Company are:
Locked in a no-holds-barred MMA combat, Trevor and Derek are on a perpetual mission to beat each other to the very edge of death. After being imprisoned like lab rats in a hyper-real world where torture is pushed to its limits, they begin to realize their abductor’s motives and methods. Will psychology, humanity or bloody brute force become the winning factor in this unforgettably brutal battle? The film was acquired from House of Film, LLC.
When Daniel is lured to an isolated island guesthouse by his new online girlfriend Callie, his hopes for a romantic weekend get-away are quickly shattered. As other guests around the estate begin to disappear, he suspects that she or her monstrous sisters may have a gruesome menu planned for their dinner. Now he and a friend race to escape this wicked trap hoping to survive beyond the dawn. The film, which stars C. Thomas Howell, was acquired from Cardinal XD.
Jonah’s search for answers about his brother’s death leads to the shadowy underworld of a hyper-reality show with “eyecasting.” Users place contact lenses with a camera on their eyes and broadcast everything they do. The more “followers” these reality stars can draw, the more sponsors and money they can acquire. This race for ratings spawns casinos where gamblers bet on people’s life events and where unscrupulous “producers” spice up the action with contestants who cross the line from legal to lethal. Will Jonah become the next casualty or the next killer star? The film was acquired from Rocket Punch Productions, LLC.
Carrie, a young, spiritual woman, is abandoned by her missionary father and forced to move in with her mother and stepsister whose lifestyle conflicts with everything she’s come to believe in. In addition to this test on her values and convictions, Carrie believes the new house possesses evil paranormal forces. During one terrifying night after her mother leaves on a business trip, Carrie and her boyfriend conduct an exorcism to rid the house of its supernatural presence. But, instead of purging the spirit, they awaken an even more sinister terror that begins to haunt and torture them. Now, Carrie must confront savage forces to protect her little sister and her life. The film stars Heather Langenkamp (“A Nightmare on Elm Street”). The film was acquired from Mainsail, LLC.
Paul and his beautiful wife find themselves in a terrifying whirlwind of murder and sabotage carried out by a mysterious stalker. While on an evening jog, Paul is threatened by passing car resulting in a horrifying chain of events. Clues to the predator’s identity are slowly revealed culminating in a white-knuckle ending that will keep you guessing until the very end. The film was acquired from Mainsail, LLC.
After installing a landline in their new home, Tyler and Chelsea begin to receive “unknown caller” phone calls from Ellen, an unstable woman who insists that Tyler is her ex-boyfriend, Eric. Mysteriously, the calls are coming from a ghostline, from which one can make phone calls without having a specific number. When neither the police nor the phone company can resolve this harassing headache, things become hellish as they’re now exposed to terrifying paranormal activity inside the house. The film was acquired from Wonderphil Entertainment, LLC.
Cowboy Bill Martin: Let The Laughter Roll

Now, in his first one-hour special that premiered on CMT, the man they call Cowboy Bill, returns home to talk about love, the frailty of life and the magnitude of being a modern man.
