Sam Logan Khaleghi carries a lot of titles in this town. The Northwestern University grad, former Chicago resident, and Chicago Emmy Nominee, is the writer, producer, director, and star in his latest feature, “Devil’s Night: Dawn of the Nain Rouge.”
Khaleghi penned a distribution deal with Cinedigm Corp who has announced that it acquired all US and Canadian rights to this action-packed crime thriller that follows a pair of local police officers from a small town just outside of Detroit being plagued by mysterious murders. As the evidence mounts up, they can no longer deny the presence of a long forgotten supernatural entity, the Nain Rouge, the city’s harbinger of doom.
“Director Sam Logan Khaleghi and his team have crafted a suspenseful, edge-of-your-seat thriller that explores the dark forces – both human and not – that leave behind a bizarre trail of murders,” said Yolanda Macias, Cinedigm’s Executive Vice-President of Acquisitions and Digital Sales. “Featuring a strong female lead who is also a military veteran, the film’s dramatic exploration of larger social and moral conflicts in a Detroit community adds further resonance and weight to its bone-chilling scares and truly terrifying ending.”
“I’m truly elated to be working with the team at Cinedigm as they take the reins on our urban legend from Motown and bring it to a larger audience,” says Khaleghi. “It’s an amalgam of mystery, action and drama with a dash of creature feature thrills.”
The deal was negotiated by Josh Thomashow, Director of Acquisitions at Cinedigm, with the film’s producing team, Sam Logan Khaleghi, Tel Ganesan and Jesse Dean Crawfis.
