New York, NY, August 21, 2012 – Dimension Films announced today that they have acquired U.S. distribution rights to the psychological thriller ANGRY LITTLE GOD from director Daniel Stamm (The Last Exorcism).

Stamm and his writing partner David Birke adapted the script from the original film which follows a bright but meek social services coordinator who’s drowning in debt and desperate as he’s about to marry the love of his life. He receives a mysterious phone call informing him that he’s on a hidden camera game show where he must execute 13 tasks to receive a cash prize of over $6,000,000. He accepts the challenge, but even with thousands of dollars suddenly appearing in his bank account, he realizes he’s in over his head. Trapped into the horrors manipulated by unseen spectators, his need to complete the game escalates as the tasks grow more extreme, to a devastating point of no return.
