"DANTE 01"--Science Fiction Nightmare Lands On DVD April 21st From The Weinstein Company And Genius Products

"Like an amphetamine powered version of Doom"­

SANTA MONICA, CA ­ A new arrival at an appalling space prison unveils adisturbing tale in Dante 01, arriving on DVD April 21st from Genius Products and The Weinstein Company under the Dimension Extreme label. "Visually riveting" (Variety) and equally as horrifying, Dante 01 is the hotly anticipated solo directorial debut from French filmmaker Marc Caro (City of Lost Children, Delicatessen).

The sole survivor of an alien encounter and convicted of his crew¹s murder, Saint Georges is banished to Dante 01, the intergalactic facility for the criminally insane. Home to the Universe¹s most deranged criminals, the prison serves as a testing ground for a new protocol, humans as guinea pigs. Armed with mysterious powers from his alien encounter, Georges finds himself caught in a battle to suppress the monstrous power within him before it infects the other dangerous occupants of Dante 01, unleashing a violent rebellion that could turn the terrifying, labyrinthine world upside down. Dante 01 will include a making-of featurette and will be available on DVD for the suggested retail price of $19.97.
At the edge of the galaxy, drifts Dante 01, a hellish space station designed to contain and study the worst of the criminally insane. After an unidentified mute inmate arrives on the ship, he begins to reveal frightening alien powers.
