IFC Midnight has released a ton of new stills from teen occult tale Pyewacket ahead of the acclaimed film’s March release.
Actor/filmmaker Adam MacDonald wrote and directed Pyewacket, which stars Nicole Muñoz (Scarecrow, TV’s Defiance) as Leah, an angst-ridden teenager who heads into the woods, intending to raise a witch to kill her mother. The film co-stars Laurie Holden (The Mist, The Walking Dead), Chloe Rose (Hellions) and Eric Osborne.
After her father dies, teenager Leah is forced, by her unstable mother, to leave her friends behind and move to a house in the woods. Feeling isolated and hopeless, Leah turns to Black Magic to release her anger. She naively performs an occult ritual found in a book on her bedroom shelf to invoke the spirit of a witch to kill her mother. Terrified by strange occurrences, and stricken by guilt, Leah desperately tries to reverse the spell, but soon realizes she has awoken something in the woods… and nothing can prepare her for the terror that has been unleashed.
Pyewacket arrives on US VOD on March 23rd from IFC Midnight. It hits digital HD in the UK on April 16th, and DVD April 23rd from Signature Entertainment.
