M-Square Pictures

M-Square Pictures was founded in Mannheim, a city which is – unusual among German cities – laid out in a grid pattern, leading to its nickname “Quadratestadt” (“City of Squares”). Inspired by this fact, the name M-Square was chosen for our label for Horror, Mystery and Crime movies and series. The producers and directors of M-Square Pictures (short: M-Square) movies come from all over the world, and what unites the movies is the mysterious and shocking ambience the audience is led into. May it be in India, Antarctica, Russia or just in a depressing situation somewhere around us – one of the main questions is: “Will the leading actors still escape or is it too late…?”

Before they are physically and digitally re-launched, the films are resampled, restored and digitized.

Not infrequently, new interviews with participants from back then are also being included.
