Strike were able to secure in a number of trade titles as well as consumer outlets.
Following this, the film was acquired by Parkland and Strike continue to handle the film’s publicity. In July, the film shared the UK release date as well as its first Teaser Trailer, which was shared exclusively on leading horror site, Bloody Disgusting as well as a number of UK sites.
