IFC Midnight has just acquired the North American rights to The Wretched, an occult creature feature written and directed by Brett and Drew Pierce (Deadheads).
The film follows a defiant teenage boy dealing with his parents’ imminent divorce—and a thousand-year-old witch living beneath the skin of the neighbour next door. John-Paul Howard, Piper Curda, Azie Tesfai, and Kevin Bigley star.
The Wretched world premiered at Fantasia Festival earlier this year. It’s set to release in 2020.
