Central Coast slasher flick 'PRIMITIVE' comes to DVD



A monster movie shot on the Central Coast is available on DVD and many other digital outlets as of Nov. 19. PRIMITIVE is now available on DVD, Digital Ultra Violet, Video on Demand, Digital Download, and Pay Per View.

PRIMITIVE is the brainchild of Allan Hancock College film program alum Benjamin Cooper, whose experiences in school and the industry inspired the film’s story of a Hollywood special effects artist whose creation comes to life and terrorizes his friends. Cooper shot much of his film on the Central Coast.

Thanks to Grindstone Entertainment Group and Lionsgate Home Entertainment, the film will be available on many home platforms and on the Web.

“I’m delighted,” Cooper said in a statement. “Lionsgate is an independent powerhouse in Hollywood rivaling the major studios in terms of market share and carriage. Our previous movies got decent distribution, but I estimate PRIMITIVE will be seen by more people than all of them combined, hopefully shining a spotlight on the Central Coast in the process.”

More information is available through Cooper’s production company, Thunderhead Entertainment LLC, at 709-3556 or More information on the film is available at
