his May, IFC Midnight will unleash The Wretched, from Brett Pierce and Drew Pierce, the writing-directing team behind the zombie cult hit Deadheads.
Starring John-Paul Howard (Hell or High Water) and Piper Curda (I Didn’t Do It), the film centers on a rebellious teenage boy, Ben, who 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 when a malevolent spirit from the woods takes ahold of the parents and starts playing a sinister game of house, preying upon the children.”
Jamison Jones, Zarah Mahler, Kevin Bigley, and Blane Crockarell also star.
A chilling, modern spin on the legend of the witch, The Wretched lands on VOD and Digital on May 1st, from IFC Midnight. The film will also be screened and select drive-in theaters!
