August 7, 2009. Cloud Ten Pictures Inc. has acquired distribution rights to the thriller, DANGEROUS CALLING, produced and directed by Josh and Jeremiah Daws. Cloud Ten, the Christian production and distribution house behind the LEFT BEHIND film series, has been
steadily adding to its library with independent Christian dramas like THE GENIUS CLUB, TREASURE BLIND, THE RIVER WITHIN, but DANGEROUS CALLING is Cloud Ten’s first foray into the Suspense genre. â€œWe have been actively pushing Cloud Ten’s reach beyond ‘end-times’ films and we really wanted something different and provocative and entertaining,â€ explains Cloud Ten’s CEO, AndrÃ© van Heerden. â€œDANGEROUS CALLING delivers in a big way and is genuinely ‘watch-through-your-fingers’ scary in a number of spots.â€ Not
sure how audiences might react to the well-produced thriller, van Heerden waited until hearing the loud applause and accolades from festival screenings to approach the producers about distributing the title.
DANGEROUS CALLING premiered at the 2008 Rome (Georgia) International Film Festival, where it won the coveted Audience Choice Award for Best Feature Film. With a nod to films like PSYCHO and MISERY, DANGEROUS CALLING is not your typical â€œchurch movie.â€ A new pastor in a small-town church stands up to a few controlling church members who oppose his new ideas for reaching the youth of the community, and he and his wife face dire consequences.
DANGEROUS CALLING is the first feature-length film from writers/directors Josh and Jeremiah Daws. The Daws brothers drew on influences from their own youth, and their father’s experiences as a pastor, in creating this intense thriller that addresses the issue of small-town church politics from a modern perspective. â€œOur primary goal was to tell an entertaining story, but we do believe the movie has a very important message for the
church,â€ explains Jeremiah.
Recognizing the controversial nature of DANGEROUS CALLING, Josh hopes audiences will appreciate the film’s fresh approach: â€œI believe thereâ€™s a market for this type of movie within the body of Christ and beyond,â€ says Josh. Cloud Ten agrees.
Cloud Ten plans to release DANGEROUS CALLING through its Church Cinema program for a Halloween weekend â€œFright Nightâ€ event for youth groups, before releasing the film on DVD. DANGEROUS CALLING will be distributed domestically on DVD to the secular and Christian markets through E1 Entertainment (www.e1distribution.com), and to all other markets directly by Cloud Ten Pictures.
