IFC Midnight announced today that the company has acquired North American rights to Eric England’s twisted horror film Contracted. Written and directed by England, the film stars Najarra Townsend, Matt Mercer, Alice Macdonald, Katie Stegeman, Simon Barrett, Charlie Koontz, and Caroline Williams. The film, which will be released theatrically and on VOD in November, was produced by J.D. Lifshitz and Raphael Margules of Boulderlight Pictures, and Southern Fried Films.
“Contracted tells the terrifying tale of a young girl who has a one-night stand with a stranger and contracts what she thinks is a sexually transmitted disease – but it is actually something far worse. As things begin to crumble around her, she is sent on a disturbing and bloodcurdling journey sure to keep audiences on the edge of their seats.”
The deal for the film was negotiated by Sundance Selects/IFC Films with Nate Bolotin of XYZ on behalf of the filmmakers.
