Psychedelic Rock Musical Lands Distribution

“Flirting With Azrael” signs with Atlas Distribution Company For Film Distribution

(Los Angeles, July 20, 2020)FLIRTING WITH AZRAEL, a psychedelic rock musical, has signed with Atlas Distribution Company for USA distribution.

Flirting’s Director, Douglas Stuart McDaniel, stated, “We couldn’t be happier to be working with Atlas Distribution Company. Their extraordinary commitment to the project and their consummate professionalism are everything we hoped for in finding a US distributor.

Flirting is a 21st century Rocky Horror Picture Show that is a musical that visually interprets the music of John Tod Baker featuring all 12 songs from their 2015 rock album with the same title. The story follows a woman, who is abused and tormented by her alcoholic and adulterous husband, and the many ways she gets to kill him as a result of a re-animation clinic run by Azrael, the angel of death. The dark comedy horror musical gives homage to Beetlejuice, Sweeney Todd, and Young Frankenstein.

Flirting features Kelly Shipe who was a standout in the Tarantino short film block at Raindance in London, the Soho International Film Festival in New York, and a previous winner of the emerging women filmmaker award at PictoClick in San Francisco. The film is directed by Douglas McDaniel, whose previous work has been seen in film festivals in Los Angeles, New York, Portland, OR, Branson, MO, Charleston SC, Cincinnati, OH and Kent, England.

We are incredibly excited to be working with Douglas on the distribution of Flirting with Azrael. His cutting edge cinematic interpretation of Baker’s music is entertaining, and, during this unprecedented time of disruption in the film industry, we are very much looking forward to bringing this picture to fun loving audiences that want to engage with the action on the screen,” said Harmon Kaslow, President of Atlas Distribution Company.

I love the shots I have already seen from the first week’s shoot of Flirting with Azrael. I really support this project and am impressed by the team’s ambition and commitment to making something good. I cannot say enough about the visual aesthetic you are putting together. Also, I have known the talent of the lead actress, Kelly Shipe, for several years. It’s exciting to see her on screen in the role of Rabi Xaler! Keep up the good work! I hope it gets into many festivals.” said Academy-award winning actress Octavia Spencer.

Flirting with Azrael will start its limited US theatrical release in October 2020.
