[TIFF '12] Magnet Releasing Acquires Bizarre ‘Here Comes the Devil’

3-here-comes-the-devil

Magnet Releasing has snapped up North American rights to Adrian Garcia Bogliano’s Here Comes the Devil, a film I quite enjoyed out of the Toronto International Film Festival.

On a family vacation, a couple’s son and daughter disappear while exploring a cave-riddled mountainside. The children eventually return home seemingly unharmed, but are withdrawn and devoid of emotion. The parents fear they have fallen prey to something inhuman — and that this dark evil has come home with them.

Deal was announced Thursday night at Fantastic Fest at its U.S. premiere in Austin. Bogliano, producer Andrea Quiroz Hernandez and stars Francisco Barreiro and Lura Caro were on hand for the announcement, made by Fantastic Fest lead programmer Rodney Perkins. Variety reports.

    Just saw it last night, and I was expecting better. Was it the theater I was in, or is the sound design/foley just awful/whiny? Really distracting. Still a good movie with a few decent scares, just not as well-made as Penumbra or Cold Sweat.

    Nice eyes girl, this film seems ok.
