J. Van Auken’s Revelator: Theatrical and Home Media Release Announcement
Revelator Films and Maxim Media Marketing announced a theatrical release for J. Van Auken’s high-concept, lo-fi ghost story Revelator, premiering on August 25 at Laemmle Music Hall in Beverly Hills. The film’s digital and DVD launch is set for September 5th with Blu-Ray to follow.
“John Dunning sees the dead. Now they see him.”
Starring J. Van Auken, Mindy Rae, Alex Klein, Greg Lucey, Josh Robert Thompson, Nicholas Thurkettle and Phil Miler, Revelator is a visually stylized take on the ghost story genre. Described as a mixture of Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and The Sixth Sense, Revelator is a twisted look into the arcane world just beneath the surface of our own, blending elements of horror, mystery and thriller genres in a new, exciting way.
“This film has been a long time coming for me and is truly a labor of love for myself and the cast,” said Van Auken. “I’m looking forward to our theatrical and VOD release and sharing it with audiences.”
The film centers around John Dunning (Van Auken), a disgraced psychic detective who is thrust into the midst of the mysterious Bellvue family empire – whose future fortunes rely on a vast secret island cache of water – and must investigate the suspicious death of the troubled Jacob (Nicholas Thurkettle), the last heir to the family fortune, while being dogged by a suspicious journalist (Mindy Rae) and a feckless, ruthless young family member Elias (Alex Klein). When John is accused of the murder that he himself is investigating, he must venture into the depths of madness to uncover the truth about the family and their power, before he loses his mind, his life – or worse.
