Stockholm Syndrome Film, the creators of the movies Madness and Blood Runs Cold (acquired by Bloody Disgusting Selects for a 2012 release) tells us about their newest ultra-violent Swedish horror that’s currently in post.
Tommy Wiklund and Sonny Laguna both direct Wither from a script they co-developed with David Liljeblad.
We’re told the film is about a swedish folklore that tells the legend about these creatures, almost human like, living underground. It has been told that if you disturb them, things can go very bad. When a group of friends get together for a weekend in an old deserted house, it doesn’t take a lot to awaken what lives underneath the floorboards.
Patrik Almkvist, Lisa Henni, Patrick Saxe, Amanda Renberg, Max Wallmo, Jessica Blomkvist, Anna Henriksson, Johannes Brost, Fredrik Dolk, A.R Hellquist, Ingar Sigvardsdotter, Ralf Beck, Sanna Ekman and Julia Knutson all star.
