IFC Midnight has released some incredible, high quality horror films like The Devil's Candy, I Trapped the Devil, Depraved, and The Other Lamb. Now they're set to release the bone crunching horror film The Wretched. Directed by brother Brett and Drew Pierce, this nasty little flick is about a strange woman and the mystery surrounding the disappearance of a little boy.
From the official synopsis:
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 a hold 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. Chilling and suspenseful, THE WRETCHED offers a modern update to the retro young hero’s mission like that of The Goonies, and promises to make viewers wary of every dark corner they encounter after witnessing its terrifying tale.
The Wretched is available on VOD May 1st
