I was a big fan Adam MacDonald's film Backcountry, the bear attack film that had me scared to venture into the woods for quite some time, so I have high hopes for his new feature, Pyewacket. The film just received a new trailer and poster which you can check out below. Be sure to let us know what you thought in the comments!
"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."
Directed by Adam MacDonald, Pyewacket stars Nicole Munoz, Laurie Holden, Chloe Rose, and Eric Osborne. IFC Midnight will release the movie in theaters and on VOD platforms beginning March 23rd.
