EAST GREENWICH, RI -- (Marketwire) -- 02/27/12 -- The Woodhaven Production Company proudly announces that INKUBUS, the slasher flick brought to you by Producer Chad A. Verdi and starring horror icon Robert Englund (the original Freddy Krueger), went live via VOD and DVD last week with incredible results.
Inkubus, which premiered in theaters last Halloween to a sell out crowd, hit stores nationwide on DVD February 21st, and was simultaneously released to over eighty million homes through NBC Universal VOD. "With more than sixty thousand DVDs sold this week alone between Redbox, Walmart and other outlets, Inkubus DVD sales are huge," stated Verdi, adding "within a week of the release, Inkubus has hit number 243 on IMDB's International Film Meter." http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1650537/
Inkubus tells the story of a satanic demon that terrorizes the police crew working the final shift at an abandoned Rhode Island police station. The night takes a gruesome turn when the cops quickly become pawns in the demon's brutal crowning achievement of murder, gore, and mayhem. In the end, it is clear: it's Inkubus' world... they only die in it.
The film stars Robert Englund (A Nightmare on Elm Street), William Forsythe (Halloween, The Devil's Rejects, HBO's Boardwalk Empire), Joey Fatone (My Big Fat Greek Wedding), Jonathan Silverman (Weekend at Bernie's) and Michelle Ray Smith (Salt), and also features many Rhode Island natives, including Verdi himself.

"Inkubus is just the beginning for Woodhaven," said Verdi. "This Halloween we will be following up with our second horror film, Infected, where William Forsythe and Michael Madsen battle zombies to the death." The film is currently being re-directed and edited for a release on Halloween 2012.
