Freestyle Digital Media Acquires ‘River of Ghosts’ for January Release


River of Ghosts

Psychological Fantasy-Thriller Featuring Small Town Hypnotist Sets Digital Debut for North American VOD Platforms and DVD on January 9, 2024

Freestyle Digital Media, the digital film distribution division of Byron Allen’s Allen Media Group, has acquired North American VOD rights to the psychological fantasy-thriller feature film RIVER OF GHOSTS, which will be available to rent/own on all digital HD internet, cable, and satellite platforms worldwide, as well as on DVD, starting on January 9, 2024, through Freestyle Digital Media.

River of Ghosts Synopsis

RIVER OF GHOSTS follows the story of Dr. Halton, a Stanford psychiatry student who returns to his small river hometown to practice as a hypnotherapist. As Dr. Halton dives deep into the town folks’ psyche and helps them solve their problems, he quickly becomes a popular doctor. However, still facing criticism and self-doubt, eager to prove himself, Dr. Halton finally meets a really challenging case that opens up a can of worms–of what happened by the river. The case has also earned him the recognition he craves. Through the process, Dr. Halton meets his own shadow and blockage that have to be cleansed away by the glistening water of the river for personal growth and maturity as a healer-doctor.

Written, directed, and co-produced by Jules East, RIVER OF GHOSTS features an ensemble cast that includes Conner Floyd (‘Dr. Halton’), Scot Cooper (‘Brian Meyer’), and Alena Savostikova (‘Jane Meyer’).

RIVER OF GHOSTS is about how we all have ‘ghosts’ in us that we avoid dealing with and which will end up disrupting our lives beyond our control in the form of somatic symptoms,” saic filmmaker Jules East. “And Conner Floyd’s star is rising so quickly, it’ll be fun to see his growing fan base catches his first-ever cinematic lead role.”

Freestyle Digital Media negotiated the deal to acquire RIVER OF GHOSTS directly with filmmaker Jules East.

I've been a fan of horror and slasher movies for as long as I can remember. I consider the original Halloween to be the best horror movie of all time and my guilty pleasure horror flick would be The Exorcist III. You can find me on Twitter at @406Northlane or TikTok @406Northlane where I'm sure I'll offend you at least once a day.
