FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PRESS RELEASE: DEAD SEASON TAKES #2 SPOT ON NETFLIX
LOS ANGELES, NOVEMBER 30, 2012 – Merely 24 hours after its release on Netflix last week, DEAD SEASON, an independently produced zombie film, jumped to the #2 most watched movie per day in the Netflix “Instant Watch” catalogue according to tracking service instantwatcher. Ranking just below the Will Ferrell vehicle CASA DE MI PADRE, DEAD SEASON has remained consistent as one of the top-watched films on the streaming platform, edging out other new releases RE-ANIMATOR, AIRBOURNE, IN THE NAME OF THE KING and Netflix’s own HOUSE OF CARDS (trailer).
DEAD SEASON (When a worldwide viral outbreak leads to a plague of zombies scouring the earth for the living, two survivors flee to a remote island) was recently released in the US August 2012 by Image Entertainment, and was also released internationally in Germany, the UK, France, Canada and Japan. DEAD SEASON’s VOD tenure has been successful with over 25,000 buys in it’s first week alone, and the movie’s initial DVD release outsold its first order to retailers.
“The online response to DEAD SEASON has been tremendous, and we are proud to be at the forefront of a robust emerging market for film. Being on Netflix ‘Instant Watch’ opens us to a new audience – it’s no secret that there is an entire demographic who prefers streaming and downloading to physical media,” said producer/writer Loren Semmens.
Online consumption of the movie has not only limited to Netflix, however, as it has been torrented over 1.4 million times before the DVD was even released in the US. The film’s director Adam Deyoe is optimistic about these numbers. “How many indie directors have had millions of people see their movie? It’s amazing and promising to see that given the right platform, there is still a real market for independent films,” Deyoe said.
DEAD SEASON is also available on Amazon Instant Video, iTunes, and DVD. For more information, please visit www.deadseasonmovie.com
