'The Black Dahlia Haunting' heading towards DVD, VOD July 1

If you’ve attended a paranormal conference/event in the past year, you might have been lucky enough to view a screening of the acclaimed paranormal thriller The Black Dahlia Haunting.

The film is coming to DVD, Video on Demand and Pay-Per-View on July 1, but Origin Releasing has been cool enough to release a behind-the-scenes clip and you can view it (after the jump).

The film -- which stars Devanny Pinn (Hold Your Breath), Britt Griffith (Syfy's Ghost Hunters), Cleve A. Hall (Syfy's Monster Man), Noah Dahl (Bad Teacher), Alexis Iacono (Blue Caprice), Jessica Cameron (Silent Night), and Sarah Nicklin (The Disco Exorcist) -- takes a notorious murder from history and brings it into modern times with a terrifying twist.

The Black Dahlia Haunting is written and directed by Brandon Slagle (Area 51 Confidential, Black Lagoon) and has won several awards including, Best Director (Slagle), Actress (Pinn), and Monster (Cleve Hall) at Shockfest 2012 in Hollywood. It also won Best Use of Sexuality and Best Cameo (Jessica Cameron as Marilyn Monroe) at Pollygrind 2012 as well as Best Spooky Film of 2012 at the Matchflick Flicker Awards.

The film follows New York City resident, Holly Jenson (Pinn), as she travels to Los Angeles to check on the well-being of her estranged and blind brother, Tyler (Dahl). Tyler is being held in a psychiatric ward for the murder of their parents. Griffith stars as Tyler’s psychiatrist, Dr. Owen. Unfortunately for Holly, her trip to LA, involves not only dealing with her brother and his "visions," but also being haunted by the spirit of Elizabeth Short, aka The Black Dahlia who was found brutally murdered on January 15, 1947 in LA.

According to a recent press release, “The VoD and PPV release of The Black Dahlia Haunting will continue through the film's DVD and Blu-Ray release the following month, in which it will begin expanding to retail stores and Redbox.”

The Black Dahlia Haunting will be screened next at Days of the Dead in Indianapolis this July 6 at 11 a.m. and will premiere in Canada on Aug. 3 at the Calgary Horror Con.
