Redemption Films Acquires Two Foreign Horror Titles   

February 17, 2009 Redemption Films, the company that brought the films of Jean Rollin to the U.S. and much of the world, have announced two new "acquisitions" to their collection of Euro-trash offerings.

From the real-life horror of the master race to the fantasized crushing of an individual, both of Redemption's new acquisition's have two key factors in common; they both feature a strong woman in the lead role and they each have a dark and disturbing narrative that is held together within a strong and powerful drama.

Breaking Nikki (2008, Argentina, English language) - is a taut psychological thriller in which a man sets about transforming a hapless call girl into his ex-wife using abuse, torture and drugs. At times highly disquieting, this is a serious new horror film and one that Redemption is delighted to be releasing.

Spring of Life aka Pramen Zivota (2000, Czech Republic, English subtitles) - is a bleak, haunting and emotional drama in which a young Czech girl whose blonde hair and blue eyes bring her to the attention of the SS, finds herself conscripted to a secret project, 'Lebensborn' - the Nazis' secret and infamous master race breeding program.

"Stylish and beautifully crafted, 'Spring of Life' is a real gem and one that Redemption is very pleased to be able to bring to a side audience," Redemption announced in a press release.
