I’m quite excited for this coming Friday as IFC will launch Michael Tully’s horror comedy Septien on VOD in conjunction with the Sundance Film Festival’s premiere (full details and images). Gearing up for this groundbreaking day, we’ve been provided with the official festival one sheet that features the “puzzling” tagline: “Smother the Demons.” Cannibals, demons, football and chicks… nice! Check it out inside and tell us if this looks like it’ll be one of the better Sundance horror selections.“SEPTIEN follows Cornelius Rawlings who returns to his family’s farm eighteen years after disappearing without a trace. While his parents are long deceased, Cornelius’s brothers continue to live in isolation on this forgotten piece of land. Ezra is a freak for two things: cleanliness and Jesus. Amos is a self-taught artist who fetishizes sports and Satan. Although back home, Cornelius is still distant. In between challenging strangers to one-on-one games, he huffs and drinks the days away. The family’s high-school sports demons show up one day in the guise of a plumber and a pretty girl. Only a mysterious drifter can redeem their souls on 4th and goal. Triple-threat actor/writer/director Tully creates a backwoods world that’s only a few trees away from our own, complete with characters on the edge of sanity that we can actually relate to.”
