From Brett Pierce and Drew Pierce, the writing-directing team behind the zombie cult hit Deadheads, comes a new tale of terror, The Wretched.
Starring John-Paul Howard (Hell or High Water) and Piper Curda (I Didn’t Do It), in the film, 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.”
Jamison Jones, Zarah Mahler, Kevin Bigley, and Blane Crockarell also star.
The Wretched is a chilling, modern spin on a young hero’s mission. It promises to make viewers wary of every dark corner they encounter after witnessing this terrifying tale beginning May 1st, from IFC Midnight.
