Something wicked wants inside.
IFC Midnight has released a brand new trailer and poster for the upcoming horror film The Wretched, which they’ll be bringing to digital platforms and VOD on May 1st, 2020.
Written & directed by Brett and Drew Pierce (Deadheads), The Wretched follows a defiant teenage boy, struggling with his parent’s imminent divorce, who faces off with a thousand year-old witch who is living beneath the skin of the woman next door.
Following his parents’ separation, a rebellious teenage boy, Ben, is sent to live with his father for the summer and work at the local marina in order to gain some form of discipline. The idyllic tourist town offers little solace for him, however, as he is forced to deal with the local, privileged teens and his father’s new girlfriend. Ben’s problems grow increasingly disturbing when he makes a chilling discovery about the family renting the house next door.
A malevolent spirit from the woods has taken ahold of the parents and starts playing a sinister game of house, preying upon the children and wiping away any trace of their existence. Ben’s suspicions of the supernatural horrors go unheeded and he launches a perilous crusade in order to put an end to the skin-walking witch’s reign of terror.
The Wretched stars John-Paul Howard (“Hell or High Water”), Piper Curda (I Didn’t Do It), Azie Tesfai (“Supergirl”), and Kevin Bigley (Netflix’s “Upload”).
Meagan reviewed The Wretched for us at Fantasia last year, writing: “The Pierce brothers have delivered a new dark fairy tale that the midnight crowds will enjoy.”
