IFC’s witchy indie horror The Wretched (review) is nearing a record fifth week at the top of box offices, a record that hasn’t been made since Black Panther premiered.

 

From Brett Pierce and Drew Pierce, the writing-directing team behind the zombie cult hit Deadheads, comes a new tale of terror, The Wretched.

 

John-Paul Howard (Hell or High Water) stars as Ben, a rebellious teen who has been sent to stay with his father (Jamison Jones) for the summer. One night he notices a creature lurking outside his home and follows it to his neighbor’s house. As he begins to watch the house he notices something strange. An evil force, a witch, is at work and it is erasing the memory of the children it encounters.

 

Jamison Jones, Zarah Mahler, Kevin Bigley, and Blane Crockarell also star.

 

While most studios have delayed and rescheduled releases, IFC Midnight is continuing to release movies as scheduled, with Drive-Ins leading the way for indie films to finally get the recognition they deserve.

 

A chilling, modern spin on the legend of the witch, The Wretched is now out on VOD, Digital, and playing in Drive-Ins across the country from IFC Midnight.
