(formerly Vidmark Entertainment), Trimark Pictures specialized as a small studio, producing and distributing theatrical, independent, television and home video motion pictures.

Trimark began with Warlock in 1989, a horror/fantasy film starring Julian Sands which was a major theatrical hit with fans of the horror genre. Trimark eventually made the sequel Warlock: The Armageddon in 1994. Trimark also saw success in other familiar horror series the studio produced and distributed. Leprechaun, released in 1993 starring a young Jennifer Aniston and Warwick Davis as the sinister leprechaun grossed over $10 million dollars during its theatrical run. One theatrical sequel and four direct to video sequels eventually followed.
