Drifter Finds Refuge as North American Distribution Rights Acquired by XLrator Media

Outlaw brothers have found temporary refuge, as the North American distribution rights for the post-apocalyptic horror film, ‘Drifter,’ have been acquired by XLrator Media. The movie distributor will release the thriller in theaters on February 24, and then on VOD and iTunes on February 28.

Chris von Hoffmann made his feature film directorial and producing debuts with ‘Drifter.’ He also co-wrote the script for the horror movie with Aria Emory, who also stars in the movie. The duo based the thriller’s plot on a story von Hoffmann created. ‘Drifter’ follows a pair of outlaw brothers, Miles and Dominic Pierce, who are seeking temporary refuge in a desolate town that’s inhabited by a family of cannibals.

In addition to Emory, the drama’s other lead actor is Drew Harwood, and the two portray Miles and Dominic, respectively. ‘Drifter’ also features James McCabe, Monique Rosario, Rebecca Fraiser and Anthony Ficco.

“‘Drifter’ is a stylish and wicked thriller infusing bloodthirsty cannibals with a ‘Mad Max’ aesthetic that heralds Chris von Hoffmann as a young director to watch. We’re excited to bring genre fans his feature film debut and see what he does next,” said XLrator Media CEO Barry Gordon. The executive negotiated the distribution deal with fellow XLrator Media employee, Mike Radiloff, and Lotus Entertainment’s Daniel Brandt, on behalf of the filmmakers.
