Terror Films Falls for John Knautz’s ‘Goddess of Love’
Terror Films has acquired North American rights to the latest flick from director Jon Knautz (Jack Brooks Monster Slayer, The Shrine), the erotic, psychological thriller Goddess of Love. Terror plans a wide ancillary release for the film across all major digital, EST and VOD platforms this fall.
In the film, Venus (Alexis Kendra), a lonely, eccentric woman, meets Brian (Woody Naismith), the man of her dreams. A sexually fueled, passionate relationship begins. But, as time progresses, that wonderful honeymoon-phase changes into something hellish. Brian breaks things off when his old fling, Christine (Elizabeth Sandy) comes back into his life. Completely destroyed, Venus begins a downward spiral into madness as she acts out her twisted fantasies of love and revenge.
Goddess of Love was an official selection at Film4 FrightFest, in London and the Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival. The film centrally stars Alexis Kendra. Kendra also co-wrote and produced the film with director Jon Knautz, Woody Naismith and Elizabeth Sandy.
As part of their recently announced partnership with Canada’s Raven Banner Releasing, that company will handle the Canadian distribution, while Automatic Entertainment is overseeing distribution for the rest of the world.
“I’m glad to have found the proper home for Goddess of Love with Terror Films and I’m excited to unleash it this fall,” said Knautz in a statement.
A new trailer and poster have also been released for the film.
