On behalf of IFC Midnight, we have the official trailer and poster for Adam MacDonald’s (Backcountry) newest film, PYEWACKET. The film stars Laurie Holden (“The Walking Dead”, “The X-Files”) and Nicole Muñoz, coming to select theaters, VOD and digital platforms in the U.S. on March 23, 2018.

When you’re dealing with demons, be careful what you wish for… In this ultra-unsettling occult nightmare, teenage Leah (Nicole Muñoz) finds solace from the recent death of her father – and from her strained relationship with her mother (Laurie Holden) – by dabbling in the dark arts. It all seems like harmless fun at first, until a blow out argument leads Leah to do the unthinkable: put a death curse on her mother. No sooner has the girl performed the ritual than she regrets it. But it may be too late, as an evil presence known as Pyewacket begins to make itself known – and threatens to destroy both mother and daughter.

Backcountry director Adam MacDonald builds hair-raising tension around what’s both a complex mother-daughter tale and a frightening fable about our darkest desires.
