In the age of cellphones and a million apps, it was just a matter of time before a horror movie came along to capitalize it. Bedeviled, from the writing-directing duo of  Abel and Burlee Vang mixes the supernatural and high tention to spin a new tale for the digital age. Freestyle Media has snatched up the film and announced it will have a limited theatrical run and VOD release this August.
From the Press Release:
Los Angeles, CA – July 24, 2017 – Freestyle Digital Media, the digital film distribution division of Byron Allen’s Entertainment Studios, has acquired the North American rights to the modern technological horror feature BEDEVILED for limited theatrical release and digital distribution beginning August 11, 2017.
BEDEVILED tells the story of five teenagers who receive an invite to download a Siri-like application.  Once they accept this app — which calls itself ‘Mister Bedevil’ — it begins to torment each of them by tapping into their worst fears. To stop this malevolent force, the teens must learn to trust and depend on each other’s wits and courage.

Barlow.
“We are very excited to partner with Freestyle Digital Media for the U.S. release of BEDEVILED,” said filmmakers Abel Vang and Burlee Vang. “We’ve created a new, charismatic horror villain, and we hope audiences will find him terrifying and lovable at the same time.”
“BEDEVILED is an intensely terrifying addition to the modern horror genre,” said Dan Fisher, Vice President of Acquisitions for Freestyle Digital Media. “We at Freestyle Digital Media are excited to be able to bring this terrifying satire of modern-day media to American viewers this summer.”
