IFC has bought North American rights to Joe Begos’ Almost Human following its world premiere in the Midnight Madness section of the Toronto film Festival, Variety reports.
The film, written and directed by Begos, stars Graham Skipper, Vanessa Leigh and Josh Ethier and was produced by Begos and Ethier of Channel 83 Films and Anthony Ambrosino of Ambrosino/Delmenico Films.
The film, which will also play at this year’s Fantastic Fest and Sitges Film Festival, is set in a quiet rural town in Maine beset by axe murders and alien abduction.
The production was a collaboration by Begos and his longtime best friend Ethier. Begos was the director, writer, producer and cinematographer; Ethier was a producer, editor, sound designer and a lead actor.
