IFC Midnight announced that they will be releasing WE NEED TO DO SOMETHING in theaters, Digital, and VOD on Friday, September 3, 2021.
The film follows Melissa and her family as they seek shelter from a storm and become trapped. With no sign of rescue, hours turn to days and Melissa comes to realize that she and her girlfriend Amy might have something to do with the horrors that threaten to tear her family – and the entire world – apart.
The film is directed by Sean King O’Grady in his debut narrative feature and written by Max Booth III, based on his novella of the same name, and stars Sierra McCormick (The Vast of Night), Vinessa Shaw (Hocus Pocus, The Blazing World), Pat Healy (Cheap Thrills, The Innkeepers), John James Cronin (“NOS4A2“), and newcomer Lisette Alexis.
WE NEED TO DO SOMETHING is produced by Bill Stertz, John Malerman (Bird Box), Ryan Lewis (Bird Box), and Peter Block (SAW), alongside executive producers Lauren Hantz, John Hantz, Donovan Leitch, Katherine Waddell and Max Booth III. This is the first film produced by production and financing entity Hantz Motion Pictures, and was also produced by Atlas Industries, Spin a Black Yarn, and A Bigger Boat. Jean-Phillippe Bernier served as DP and Shane Patrick Ford as the editor.
