FlickLaunch, the first movie distribution platform built on Facebook for independent filmmakers, will premiere the horror thriller The Perfect House on October 1, 2011 as a 7-day rental on the film's Facebook fanpage.

The film is directed by Kris Hulbert and Randy Kent and stars Monique Parent, Felissa Rose, Will Robertson, Andrea Vahl, Chris Raab, Jonathan Tiersten, and John Philbin.

This new platform enables independent filmmakers to market to and access a global audience through Facebook without the prohibitive costs of traditional and outdated distribution. For a $5 "ticket price," the movie will be viewed in its entirety and in full screen. Rather than go the traditional distribution route, the filmmakers for The Perfect House preferred to partner with FlickLaunch to engage moviegoers with a more scalable distribution model.

"We see a great opportunity to help these filmmakers get their films
seen by offering this powerful transactional VOD distribution platform," remarked Craig Tanner, Co-Founder and CEO of FlickLaunch. "Currently, many independent films are not lucky enough to secure distribution from a major distributor and rarely have a meaningful marketing budget to reach a mass audience. FlickLaunch provides an immediate solution to filmmakers for both of these issues."

"Partnering with FlickLaunch to be the first new released film on Facebook is something we are extremely excited and proud of," says Kris Hulbert, writer, producer, and co-director of The Perfect House. "As soon as FlickLaunch announced their video platform during our post-production, I immediately saw we were in a special position and the value to release our film in this new distribution model was enormous."

In The Perfect House, newlyweds Mike and Marisol (Will Robertson and Andrea Vahl), are given the tour of their dream home by a perky real estate agent (Monique Parent) and they soon find out their perfect house might just have a foreboding past. The ugly horrors of this house are revealed through three original tales of terror detailing the grim circumstances of the previous occupants. Done as an anthology, each short story in this homage to horror emulates the story and shooting styles of specific time periods in cinematic horror history.

Prior to the October 1st premiere, The Perfect House will take the film on a 30-city tour. This reality-style tour will feature free screenings, a must-see tour bus, and will showcase the cast and crew on an adventure they hope to share with horror fans around the country.
