IFC Midnight has revealed a brand new poster and trailer for their upcoming horror film release, THE WRETCHED. The film will be released on Digital and Video on Demand on May 1, 2020. Make sure you check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
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 ahold 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.
THE WRETCHED stars John-Paul Howard (The Space Between Us, 14 Cameras) and Piper Curda (“A.N.T. Farm”, “Youth & Consequences”).
