Something wicked is lurking in the cellar in truly scary, gruesome and shocking new horror film, THE WRETCHED, which tells the story of a teenager going up against a 1000-year-old witch.
We’re pleased to announce the digital release date for our latest acquisition The Wretched, written and directed by the Pierce Brothers (directors of cult zom-com Deadheads) and starring John-Paul Howard, last seen in horror comedy Snatchers. The film is a cross between Fright Night and The Witch, with a breathtakingly tense opening sequence and moments reminiscent of horror classic The Evil Dead; unsurprising considering the Pierce Brothers’ father, Bart, worked on the effects for that film.
