ACE Pictures, a subsidiary of ACE Holdings Berhad, received another exciting news as Sitges Film Festival announced that both its horror films – Daniel Isn’t Real and Color Out of Space will compete in the official fantastic selection this year!

In July 2019, director Adam Egypt Mortimer won the Best Director Choice prize at the 2019 BIFAN for Daniel Isn’t Real. The win came after the film’s world premiere at the 2019 SXSW where it received fantastic reviews from both critics and audience.

Color Out of Space, starring Nicolas Cage, was recently screened at the 2019 TIFF and won Best Horror Picture at Fantastic Fest 2019. It has also been accepted into the 2019 BFI London Film Festival.

Both films are the fruits of its collaboration with SpectreVision, and the only horror movies it has produced so far. The achievement means the company will continue to look for great horror scripts that are able to take it one step further towards realizing its full potential in the film industry, both locally and globally.
