Irish supernatural comedy Extra Ordinary now available on major VOD platforms
08 Jan 2020 : News Desk
Will Forte and Maeve Higgins in Extra Ordinary.
Following its Irish and UK cinema release last year, Irish supernatural comedy Extra Ordinary has now been released across a number of VOD platforms including iTunes, Amazon, Google, Microsoft, PlayStation and Sky Store.

The film, which is the debut feature from writer/directors Mike Ahern and Enda Loughman had its world premiere at the renowned SXSW Film Festival last year where it was nominated for the Grand Jury Award for Narrative Feature.  Since then it has picked up numerous awards including Best Irish Feature Film at the Galway Film Fleadh, the Jury Prize at the Brussels International Festival of Fantasy Film and both the Audience Award and Best Feature Film at the Neuchatel International Fantastic Film Festival and the Audience Award at Sitges International Fantastic Film Festival. 

Extra Ordinary stars Irish comedian/writer/actress Maeve Higgins (Naked Camera, Inside Amy Schumer), Barry Ward (Jimmy’s Hall, MAZE), Will Forte (Nebraska, Saturday Night Live, MacGruber), and Claudia O’Doherty (Trainwreck, Love, Inside Amy Schumer) and tells the story of Rose, a sweet and lonely small-town driving instructor who must use her supernatural “talent” to save the daughter of a local man from a washed-up rock star looking to use her in a satanic pact that will reignite his fame.

During its cinema release in Ireland, critics called the comedy “one of the funniest movies of the year to date”, “a potential cult classic”, and “a consistently hilarious send-up of the horror genre… full of clever invention and sparkling writing”. 

Extra Ordinary is set to be released theatrically in the US in the coming months by Good Deed Entertainment’s Cranked Up Films.

Produced by Katie Holly (Citadel, Love & Friendship), Mary McCarthy (Mr Foley, Six Shooter), Yvonne Donohoe (Striking Out) and Ailish Bracken (The Queen of Ireland) for Blinder Films, Extra Ordinary is a co-production with Umedia with funding from Screen Ireland, UMedia and Inevitable Pictures.
