Freestyle Digital Media Acquires Paranormal Thriller “Hum” For August Release
Written by IMN on 22 Jul 2021
Freestyle Digital Media, the digital film distribution division of Byron Allen’s Entertainment Studios, has acquired North American VOD rights to the paranormal thriller feature film HUM. HUM will be available to rent and own on North American digital HD internet, cable, and satellite platforms on August 3, 2021 through Freestyle Digital Media. Written and directed by Henry Johnston, HUM was produced by Caleb Haydock, with Henry Johnston and Tyler Ross serving as executive producers. The cast includes Tyler Ross (‘David’), Andrew Oliveri (‘Powell’), Sonaz Izadi (‘Ellie’), Sierra Miller (‘Grace’), and Bradley Smith (‘The Man in Purple’).
“HUM is about how one community can be shaken to its core by an unexplainable event; how easily our belief systems and foundations can be upended,” said filmmaker Henry Johnston. “Some double down, some run away, and others lash out violently. By confronting the supernatural, our protagonist is forced to reckon with his own reality and discover which kind of person he is going to be.”
Freestyle Digital Media head of acquisitions, Chris Charalambous, negotiated the deal to acquire HUM directly with producer Caleb Haydock.
