The Pact director Nicholas McCarthy’s newest supernatural horror, Home, world premiered at SXSW this past March where it was acquired by IFC Midnight.
Newly titled At the Devil’s Door, IFC Midnight will release the film pre-theatrically on VOD/digital on August 8 with theatrical release to follow on September 12, Bloody Disgusting learned exclusively.
“After IFC acquired the movie at South by Southwest they floated the idea that a more genre-direct title might help the movie reach its audience,” said McCarthy. “I agreed and came back at them with AT THE DEVIL’S DOOR. I love the title and think it captures what this movie is. I can’t wait to unleash it on to the world!“
In the supernatural horror starring Naya Rivera, Catalina Sandino Moreno, Ashley Rickards, Wyatt Russell and Ava Acres, when ambitious young real estate agent Leigh is asked to sell a house with a checkered past, she crosses paths with a disturbed girl whom she learns is the runaway daughter of the couple selling the property. When Leigh tries to intervene and help her, she becomes entangled with a supernatural force that soon pulls Leigh’s artist sister Vera into its web — and has sinister plans for both of them.
The film was produced and financed by Sonny Mallhi’s Candlewood entertainment.
