FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

LIONS GATE TAKES UP RESIDENCE IN HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES

Los Angeles – Lions Gate Films (AMEX and TSE: LGF) has secured rights from Andy Gould of The Firm to musical superstar/filmmaker Rob Zombie’s controversial horror film House of 1000 Corpses, it was announced today by Tom Ortenberg, president of Lions Gate Films Releasing. The film will be released theatrically in the first quarter of 2003.

“With House of 1000 Corpses, Rob Zombie has created an in your face, unrelenting horror film experience,” said Ortenberg. “We are really looking forward to working with Rob and having a lot of fun with this campaign.”

“Whether it be American Psycho, Dogma or O, Lions Gate has proven time and again that they are not afraid to take on risky, subversive projects, and that they are masters at marketing and distributing provocative, challenging material,” said Andy Gould.

Ortenberg, Peter Block, President of Home Entertainment, Acquisitions and New Media, and Jason Constantine, Vice President of Acquisitions, negotiated the deal on behalf of Lions Gate, with Andy Gould of The Firm, David Fox and Jeffrey Light of Myman, Abell, Fineman, Greenspan, & Light, LLP, Rick Yorn of The Firm and Jordan Schur of Geffen Records negotiating on behalf of writer/director Zombie.

In House of 1000 Corpses, two young couples take a misguided tour onto the back roads of America in search of a local legend known as Dr. Satan. Lost and stranded, they are set upon by a bizarre family of psychotics. Murder, cannibalism and satanic rituals are just a few of the 1000+ horrors that await. Written and directed by Zombie, making his feature film debut, the film stars cult favorites Sid Haig, Bill Mosley, Michael J. Pollard and Karen Black, along with newcomers, Sherri Moon and Chris Hardwick. Produced by Andy Gould, edited by Robert K. Lambert and accompanied by an original soundtrack featuring new music by Zombie.

An influential multi-platinum musician and Grammy nominated artist, Zombie is also an MTV video award winner for his self-directed “More Human Than Human” video. His first feature film experience came when he was recruited by Mike Judge to animate the classic hallucinatory sequence of the feature Beavis & Butt-Head Do America. He has composed songs for several feature films, including Mission: Impossible II; End of Days and The Crow: City of Angels.
