IFC Midnight Calls Upon ‘Pyewacket’ Out of TIFF

Be careful what you wish for…

In Pyewacket, from director Adam MacDonald (Backcountry), a frustrated girl (Nicole Muñoz) attempts an occult ritual but awakens something sinister in the woods instead.

Hailing out of Canada, the psychological thriller, ironically from the executive producer of The Witch, is actually about a young girl who performs an occult ritual to evoke a witch to kill her mother.

IFC Midnight has acquired U.S. rights to the film, Bloody Disgusting learned, and will release in limited theaters and on VOD in 2018. Eone has Canada.

We are huge fans of this indie gem here on Bloody.

I exclaimed that this “slow burn [film] delivers brooding heavy metal horror,” while Joe Lipsett wrote that the “occult film succeeds by teasing and delaying the horror.”



  • You had me at IFC Midnight. Plus, and I don’t know why, I’m kind of a sucker for almost any movie that makes the woods seem like a horrifying place where people go to be mutilated. Maybe it’s because I can use it as an excuse for why I don’t want to go camping.
