Random Media Announces Two Highly-Topical “Ripped from the Headlines” Films for January Release

Los Angeles – January 2016

“FOREIGN LAND” tackles the politically explosive issue of undocumented immigration. This might be the one movie Donald Trump doesn’t want you to see.


“FRIEND REQUEST” is an edge of your seat thriller about the dangers of living through social media.


Random Media and Alchemy are releasing “FRIEND REQUEST” on digital EST and VOD platforms on January 12th and “FOREIGN LAND” on digital EST and VOD platforms on January 19th.

“Foreign Land” starring Jeffrey Licon (Mysterious Skin, The Brothers Garcia) and Alex Frnka (The Inbetweeners, I’m OK), tells the story of a Los Angeles teen deported to Mexico after a routine traffic stop. He quickly learns that Tijuana and many other border towns are violent places overrun by dangerous, warring criminal factions very different from the American life he’s always known.

“Friend Request” Starring Anthony Michael Hall (The Dead Zone, The Breakfast Club, The Dark Knight, Edward Scissorhands) and Martin Kove (The Karate Kid, Rambo, Cagney and Lacey), is a gripping thriller that follows a team of detectives tasked with apprehending a crazed, on-line psycho, who tracks down and lures victims via a popular social media website.
