Childs Play (1988) or the 'Chucky' films are the most similar films to mine, mostly due to the fact that i based my film opening on them. 
None of these are indie film companies and therefore would not be suitable for my film. I am working on a significantly low budget (around £20) whereas these companies have budgets of millions of pounds. For example Universal Pictures's film Drag Me to Hell, Sam Raimi (2009) had a budget of $30,000,000. United Artist's film Jeepers Creepers, Victor Salva (2001) had a budget of $2,110,000 and Rogue Picture's film Seed of Chucky, Don Mancini (20 has a $12 million dollar budget. 

United Artists:

  1. Owners include; MGM - part of subsidiaries, Providence Equity Partners (29%), TPG Capital (21%), Sony (20%), Comcast (20%), DLJ Merchant Banking Partners (7%) and Quadrangle Group (3%)
Universal Pictures: 
  1. Owned by General Electric (80%) and Vivendi (20%). 
  2. Universal Pictures is one of The Big Six.
  3. Universal Pictures became a part of NBC Universal as a result of the 2004 merger
Rogue Pictures: 
  1. division of Relativity Media 
  2. It was originally launched by Focus Features under Universal Pictures.

Companies better suited to my film would be these indie horror production companies that specialise in short films rather than feature length films.

  1. What sort of companies are these? Indies? majors? conglomerates? Would this be an appropriate choice for a low-budget UK horror?
