New line of value-priced independent horror film compilations to be released on DVD



Minneapolis, MN -- Maxim Media, long dedicated to providing independent horror films to its fan base, has entered into an ongoing relationship with Mill Creek Entertainment to exclusively provide content for budget-priced compilations throughout the U.S. and Canada through Pendulum Pictures.

"We're excited to be the exclusive content provider to Pendulum Pictures. Our expertise in the Horror genre combined with Mill Creek's extensive distribution network that reaches the broadest array of retail, catalog and online resellers, will bring budget-priced compilations directly to our thirsty customers," stated Darrin G. Ramage, Founder, Owner and President of Maxim Media.

Mill Creek Entertainment will release Pendulum Pictures compilations to the sell-through marketplace, beginning with the initial release of four compilations in February 2006.

"We're delighted to partner with Maxim Media in the creation and launch of Pendulum Pictures," stated Ian Warfield, President of Mill Creek Entertainment. "The line-up of thematic horror film compilations offers unprecedented value to legions of loyal horror fans, supported by focused advertising in targeted consumer publications including Rue Morgue, Fangoria, Cinefantastique and Femme Fatales. Retailers will benefit from heightened consumer awareness coupled with an unparalleled value proposition."
