With drive-in popularity on the rise during to these strange times brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, IFC Midnight's creature feature The Wretched (read our review) has been dominating the box office charts since its theatrical rollout last month, and the film's success on the silver screen will likely continue into Memorial Day Weekend, as it's expanding to more than 45 drive-ins nationwide.
You can visit the film's official website to see if the witchy tale is playing at a drive-in near you this holiday weekend.
In The Wretched, "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."
Written and directed by Brett Pierce and Drew T. Pierce (Deadheads),The Wretched stars John-Paul Howard (Hell or High Water), Piper Curda (I Didn’t Do It), Azie Tesfai (Supergirl), and Kevin Bigley (Netflix’s Upload).
