Random Media has picked up the worldwide rights to Vampire Dad, a horror-comedy indie from first-time feature director Frankie Ingrassia. Jackson Hurst (Sharp Objects), Emily O’Brien (The Young and the Restless) and Grace Fulton (Annabelle: Creation) star in the film, which was co-written by Ingrassia and Kathryn M. Moseley. The pic, which hails from One Two Twenty Entertainment, is getting a Father’s Day release in theaters and on multiple VOD platforms on June 16. Vampire Dad centers on psychologist Dr. Raymond Walenski (Hurst), who is turned into a vampire in order to provide therapy to creatures of the underworld. He battles his new beastly nature while struggling to keep his family life from being torn apart. Moseley and Jed Rhein produced the film. The deal was brokered by Eric Doctorow of Random Media, and by Tiffany Boyle and Sean Pope from Ramo Law on behalf of the filmmakers.
