Mickey Keating’s “Carnage Park” Acquired by Content
Mickey Keating’s third film “Carnage Park” had its world premier last week. The debut occurred at the Sundance Film Festival Midnight section. “Carnage Park” received acclaim from attendees and critics alike. The film was produced through Diablo Entertainment. Written and directed by Mickey Keating, the stylized 70’s thriller is inspired by a true account.
The synopsis to “Carnage Park” reads as follows:
The 1970’s set depicts a harrowing fight for survival after a pair of wannabe crooks botch a bank heist and flee into the desert, where they inexplicably stumble upon Carnage Park, a remote stretch of wilderness occupied by a psychotic ex-military sniper.
Mickey Keating best describes his Action, Crime, Horror with the following comment:
“Carnage Park is my total love letter to Peckinpah, and Deliverance, and ’70s survival movies…It’s hard to categorize in a way, because it’s an energetic crime movie that goes horribly horribly awry. I think it’s going to be something different for people.”
Content Media acquired the rights to “Carnage Park” immediately after the film’s world event. The company led by President of Film, Jamie Carmichael and Head of Sales, Harry White will handle international sales on the film starting in Berlin. Carmichael and White had this to share about their latest acquisition.
“Carnage Park’ is everything you could hope for in an ultra-cool elevated genre film – full of tension, stylish as hell, and tough as nails. We love it.”
