Psychological horror/thriller Wretch is coming to digital and OnDemand on January 29th via ThoughtFly Films. Described as “The Blair Witch Project on acid,” the film stars Spencer Korcz, Megan Massie, and Riker Hill.
Wretch follows three friends struggling to piece together fractured memories after a drug-fueled night in the woods. In the process, they’re forced to confront guilt, jealousy, and a supernatural presence that threatens to expose their true natures.
Wretch is written and directed by Brian Cunningham, whose previous films include the horror-comedy Overtime, the acclaimed haunted house documentary Monsters Wanted, and the recent Loss Prevention, starring former WWE Superstar Al Snow and veteran actor Vernon Wells (Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior, Commando).
“I’m a horror fanatic,” says Cunningham, “Specifically the psychological variety that gets under your skin and makes you question what you’re watching. It was great to dive straight into the darker recesses of the genre and try to make something that really gets inside your head.”
The film pulls from the genre conventions of slasher, found footage, and monster movies to tell an enigmatic, unpredictable story.
“We wanted a movie that feels familiar but really pulls the rug out from under the audience and puts some weighty ideas in front of them,” states Cunningham. “The movie is about voyeurism, surveillance, and shifting perspectives. In a lot of ways, it’s an anti-found-footage movie that becomes something very different by the end.”
Wretch is available for pre-order on iTunes and will be released on Digital and OnDemand and January 29.
