Rojo and Midday Demons Release Details: "1844 Entertainment is proud to announce the digital releases of two international genre thrillers that have floored audiences worldwide: Benjamín Naishtat's acclaimed thriller ROJO and Rossella De Venuto's supernatural shocker MIDDAY DEMONS. The LA-based distributor has debuted ROJO on digital platforms yesterday and will release MIDDAY DEMONS on November 12th.

Benjamín Naishtat's ROJO, which World Premiered to massive acclaim at the prestigious Toronto International Film Festival, is set in the mid-seventies and follows a strange man's arrival in a quiet provincial city. In a restaurant, without any apparent reason, he starts insulting a renowned lawyer. The community supports the lawyer and the stranger is humiliated and thrown out. Later that night, the stranger, determined to wreak a terrible vengeance, intercepts the lawyer and his wife - forcing his victims to take a path of no return... involving death, secrets, and silence. Adored by both critics and audiences at TIFF, ROJO is 98% Certified Fresh at Rotten Tomatoes, with The New York Times hailing it as "a brutal trip" and The Hollywood Reporter praising Naishtat as "an exciting new voice in Argentinean cinema!"

Drenched in the supernatural, MIDDAY DEMONS, the debut film from writer/director Rossella De Venuto, tells the story of Megan, a successful Irish artist living in Dublin with her husband, an Italian architect. After receiving news that her husband's uncle has died, the couple travels to Apulia, in southern Italy, to handle Leo’s unexpected inheritance: the family's ancient palace. Left alone at home during the hottest hours of the summer afternoon, Megan is disturbed by mysterious presences. While trying to understand what's happening, Megan begins to find clues scattered throughout the palace, unraveling an unsolved mystery linked to her husband's family.

ROJO stars Dario Grandinetti (TALK TO HER), Andrea Frigerio (THE DISTINGUISHED CITIZEN), Alfredo Castro (TONY MANERO), and Laura Grandinetti (RUSSIAN ROULETTE).

MIDDAY DEMONS stars Fiona Glascott (RESIDENT EVIL, APARTMENT 143), Federico Castelluccio (HBO's The Sopranos), Pietro Ragusa (THE LIFE AQUATIC WITH STEVE ZISSOU), and Bianca Nappi (HOUSE OF SHADOWS).

Since then, she's appeared in over 20 film and television projects. In addition to acting, Tamika is the Indie Spotlight manager for Daily Dead, where she brings readers news on independent horror projects every weekend.

The first horror film Tamika watched was Child's Play. Being eight years old at the time, she remembers being so scared when Chucky came to life that she projectile vomited. It's tough for her to choose only one movie as her favorite horror film, so she picked two: Nosferatu and The Stepford Wives (1975).
