By a Front Row Features Staff Reporter

XLrator Media has acquired North American distribution rights to the post-apocalyptic horror-thriller “Drifter” and will release the film in theaters on Friday Feb. 24 and on VOD and iTunes Tuesday Feb. 28.

Chris von Hoffmann directed and produced “Drifter,” his feature film debut, which he co-wrote (based on his story) with Aria Emory. The horror movie stars Drew Harwood, Emory, James McCabe, Monique Rosario, Rebecca Fraiser and Anthony Ficco. von Hoffmann previously directed several short films, including “Fuel Junkie,” “White Trash” and “Vodka 7,” which have won awards at various film festivals.

“Drifter” follows a pair of outlaw brothers (Harwood and Emory) who seek temporary refuge in a desolate town inhabited by a family of psychotic cannibalistic lunatics.

“We’re excited to bring genre fans his feature film debut and see what he does next,” said XLrator Media CEO Barry Gordon.

XLrator Media’s Barry Gordon and Mike Radiloff negotiated the deal with Lotus Entertainment’s Daniel Brandt on behalf of the filmmakers.
