We first told you about German filmmaker Fritz Böhm’s horror film Wildling way back in 2016, and it just resurfaced again today in advance of its premiere at SXSW. As reported by Variety, IFC Midnight has scooped up the U.S. and Canadian rights to the film.
“The film follows Anna (Bel Powley), a woman who spent her entire childhood locked in the attic, under the care of a mysterious man she only knows as Daddy (Brad Dourif). Anna is scared to death of a creature he calls the Wildling, a child-eating monster that roams outside. After a small-town sheriff Ellen Cooper (Liv Tyler) frees Anna and helps her start a new life, her childhood nightmares of the Wildling return, disrupting the possibility of a normal life.”
Wildling will release theatrically and on VOD on April 13.
James Le Gros, Collin Kelly-Sordelet and Mike Faist also star.
Böhm wrote the script with Florian Eder.
