AMERICAN SATAN boasts an all-star cast including Golden Globe Nominee Malcolm McDowell (A Clockwork Orange, Rob Zombie’s Halloween, Amazon’s “Mozart in the Jungle”), John Bradley (HBO’s “Game of Thrones”), Mark Boone, Jr. (FX’s “Sons of Anarchy”), Denise Richards (Wild Things, Starship Troopers), and teen superstars Disney’s BooBoo Stewart (The Twilight Series, X-Men: Days Of Future Past) and Nickelodeon’s Drake Bell.
From the producer of Rob Zombie’s Halloween & The Devil’s Rejects, AMERICAN SATAN is directed by Ash Avildsen – Founder of leading independent rock and heavy metal label Sumerian Records. International recording stars Andy Biersack (Black Veil Brides) and Ben Bruce (Asking Alexandria) bring rock & roll authenticity to the film, starring as leads in the fictional band The Relentless that the movie centers around, along with Jonathan Davis of platinum selling mega group Korn and Nicholas O’Toole composing the score.
AMERICAN SATAN plays upon the dream every kid has of becoming a rock star and asks the question, what would you do to achieve that dream? The story follows a young rock band that moves to Los Angeles to chase their dreams of stardom on the Sunset Strip. Hell-bent on following in the footsteps of their musical idols, they meet an enigmatic stranger (McDowell) who seems to know them better than they know themselves. Preying on their most basic desires and emotions, he entices them with an offer that sets them on a path to fame and fortune; but when they release their debut album, “American Satan,” it sets off a firestorm of controversy, death and destruction beyond anything the music world could ever imagine.
The first single from the AMERICAN SATAN soundtrack, “Let Him Burn” performed by The Relentless was released worldwide on August 11th and hit #1 on digital music charts in 15 countries.
Ash Avildsen: “Some of my favorite films of all time are MIRAMAX movies, so naturally, partnering with them for distribution is incredibly exciting. Finding a home that truly understands rock & roll culture and the loyal fan base that comes with this world of music and storytelling is hard to find in Hollywood. The MIRAMAX team truly gets it. I am ecstatic to show the world AMERICAN SATAN and give both the new and classic generations of music lovers a movie they can call their own.”
The film will open in over 50 cities in the US as well as in Canada, Mexico and Australia all on October 13th. The UK release is scheduled for October 20th and plans for expansion in to more cities and countries is planned for later in the month.
