RLJE Films, a business unit of AMC Networks, has picked up select rights to Z, one of the best genre films of the year, from Shudder, AMC Networks’ streaming service for horror, thriller, and the supernatural and will unleash it on home video this September.

Directed by Brandon Christensen (Still/Born) who co-wrote the movie with Colin Minihan (What Keeps You AliveGrave Encounters), the horror film stars Keegan Connor Tracy (Final Destination 2), Jett Klyne (The Boy), Sean Rogerson (Grave Encounters), Sara Canning (War for the Planet of the Apes), Stephen McHattie (Watchmen), and Chandra West (White Noise).

In the film, when Beth’s (Keegan Connor Tracy) son (Jett Klyne) brings home an imaginary friend named “Z,” she becomes concerned that he is falling too deep into a world of make-believe. He starts to display extremely destructive behavior, blaming Z for all of his actions. But after he gets kicked out of school, Beth is forced to find a solution. She medicates her son, making him unable to see his imaginary companion. But now Beth sees Z…and he wants to be her friend.
