Koch Scares Up New Distribution Deal, Critics' Top 10 List Darling11 Jan, 2005 By: Brendan Howard
Koch Entertainment has inked an exclusive U.S. and Canada distribution deal with the horror, cult-film and sci-fi supplier Elite Entertainment.
Elite Entertainment's catalog sports such horror staples as Night of the Living Dead, Evil Dead, I Spit on Your Grave and Re-Animator.
Also in the news is Koch Lorber Films' The Five Obstructions, which, by several accounts, is a critical success.
The title was named to multiple 2004 top 10 lists, including those of the Los Angeles Times, Time Magazine, The Village Voice, LA Weekly, Time Out New York, Coming Soon Magazine, indieWire and Newsday.
The film, an experimental work from Danish filmmakers Jorgen Leth and Lars von Trier, is also Denmark's official entry in the Academy Awards' best foreign-language film category.
