IFC Midnight Brings 'The Wretched' Home This May, New Trailer and Poster Released

The Wretched IFC Midnight New Poster Trailer

Something wicked wants inside.

IFC Midnight have released a new trailer and poster for Brett and Drew Pierce's upcoming horror film The Wretched, which is slated to release in select cinemas (subject to change due to the COVID-19 pandemic), on Digital and Cable VOD on May 1st, 2020.

From the duo behind Deadheads, The Wretched follows a defiant teenage boy, struggling with his parent’s imminent divorce, who faces off with a thousand year-old witch, who is living beneath the skin of the woman next door.

"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 film stars John-Paul Howard (Hell or High Water), Piper Curda (I Didn't Do It), Jamison Jones ("True Detective"), Azie Tesfai ("Supergirl"), Kevin Bigley (Netflix's Upload) and Zarah Mahler (Nightmare Cinema).

The film features special effects by Erik Porn ("Fear The Walking Dead"). Chang Tseng and Ed Polgardy produced.
