How bad would it suck to start renovations on a "fixer upper" only to find out that the house is haunted by a witch's spirit? The more it's repaired that stronger she becomes...this is the premise for Andy Mitton's The Witch In The Window.
Shudder recently acquired the film for US, UK, Canada, Germany, Australia and New Zealand out of Cannes. The film is having its World Premiere at the Fantasia Film Festival in Quebec next month.
The Witch In The Window focuses on separated father Simon and his estranged twelve year-old son, Finn, who head to Vermont to repair an old farmhouse and encounter the malicious spirit of a previous owner, an infamously cruel woman named Lydia. With every repair Simon makes, he’s also making her spirit stronger…until a terrifying encounter leaves him doubting whether he can protect his son from the evil that’s making its way into their heads, and hearts.
Starring Alex Draper as Simon and introducing Charlie Tacker as Finn, with Greg Naughton, Arija Bareikis, and Carol Stanzione. The Witch In The Window was written and directed by Andy Mitton and produced by Richard W. King. Clark Freeman served as Executive Producer.
