Vertical Entertainment has their wish granted and have acquired the North American rights to the supernatural horror film Demon Eye, from genre specialist sales agent Devilworks, ScreenDaily reports today.
The film is based on a 1850s tale of Witchcraft in Saddleworth, UK and tells the story of a young girl who returns to her father’s country house in the Moors following his mysterious death. There, she finds a cursed amulet that will grant her greatest wish, but at a price.
Demon Eye stars Darren Day and Ellie Goffe.
Ryan Simons wrote, directed and co-produced the film. Jamie Cymbal and Simon Denton also produced with Christopher Hirst, Maureen Lunt, Graham Leslie and Dennis Greatbatch serving as executive producers.
The film will be released theatrically in April and will premiere this month at Fantasporto Fantastic Film Festival in Portugal.
