Following are the films most recently acquired by Inception Media Group:
"Pathfinders: In The Company of Strangers" (2011)
It's June 5, 1944. A secret mission is launched prior to the D-Day Invasion. A small elite group of American paratroopers drop behind enemy lines and land right in the lap of the German Infantry. They are outnumbered, unsupported and racing against the clock. Their sole duty is to stay alive long enough to find a strategic location and set up the top-secret navigation equipment needed to guide in the main airborne assault on D-Day. Failure would mean the lives of thousands. Based on actual events, this untold story has remained hidden for more than 60 years. The film stars Michael Connor Humphries ("Forrest Gump") and Christopher Serrone ("Goodfellas"). The film was acquired from Koan, Inc.
"Back From Hell" (2011)
Six ex-classmates decide to spend the holidays together and rent a manor in the countryside to forget the raving madness of the city life. After getting to know a priest living in the adjoining church, the group's mood progressively deteriorates while strange, paranormal phenomena starts to occur in the house. The vacation turns into a nightmare when Giorgio, one of the friends, starts to show signs of diabolic possession. While Alessandro, his best friend, tries to find a scientific and rational explanation, the other friends trust the priest who feels Giorgio is possessed by the devil and tries to exorcise him. In the end, all the people will figure out what is happening goes over their ability to understand, and moreover, their possibility to control. The film stars Giovanni Guidelli ("The Tourist") and Marco Quaglia ("The Talented Mr. Ripley"). The film was acquired from Opus Distribution.
"Creep Van" (2012)
Life without a car can be murder. Nobody is going to learn that lesson faster than Campbell Jackson, a 20-something, out of work, out of options misfit in Detroit. Forced to take a dead-end position at a local car wash, Campbell sees a dilapidated 1970s van for sale. Little does he know it is the Creep Van, which is busy terrorizing the people of Michigan, creatively dispatching victims with a host of elaborately constructed booby traps inside its rusted walls. For those unwilling to climb aboard, the Creep and his Van have no qualms about running folks over or smashing through the occasional house. Campbell finds himself forced to team up with a sleazy conman named Swami Ted to hunt down and stop the Creep and his Van before it is too late. The movie stars Brian Kolodziej ("The Girl Next Door"). The film was acquired from Artist View Entertainment.
"On Approval" (1944)
Directed by and starring classic screen legend Clive Brook ("Shanghai Express," "Sherlock Holmes," "Underworld") as George, the 10th Duke of Bristol, in this hilarious adaptation of Frederick Lonsdale's play. George and his equally impoverished friend Richard are invited to spend a month at a Scottish mansion by two wealthy women to test their compatibility as potential marriage partners. What follows is a delightfully witty romance described as "the funniest British light comedy ever made." The film also stars Beatrice Lillie ("Around the World in 180 Days," "Thoroughly Modern Millie"), Roland Culver ("Isn't it Romantic," "Thunderball") and Googie Withers ("The Lady Vanishes"). The film was acquired from B2MP.
