Pyewacket — Trailer


added: Wed, Feb 21st '18

To get back at her volatile mom, an angst-ridden teen foolishly uses a black magic ritual to summon a vengeful demon in the trailer for the supernatural horror "Pyewacket."

Starring Nicole Munoz (from Syfy's "Defiance" and "Center Stage: On Pointe") and former "Walking Dead" star Laurie Holden, the film is written and directed by Canadian actor-turned-filmmaker Adam MacDonald, who previously made the camping-trip-gone-wrong thriller "Backcountry."

"Pyewacket," which also co-stars Chloe Rose (Hellions), Eric Osborne (Degrassi) and Romeo Carere, premiered at last year's Toronto International Film Festival and is currently scheduled to screen next month at the FrightFest Glasgow, before arriving in theaters and VOD on March 23rd. Watch the trailer, above.

When you’re dealing with demons, be careful what you wish for ... In this ultra-unsettling occult nightmare, teenage Leah (Nicole Munoz) finds solace from the recent death of her father -- and from her strained relationship with her mother (Laurie Holden) -- by dabbling in the dark arts. It all seems like harmless fun at first, until a blow out argument leads Leah to do the unthinkable: put a death curse on her mother. No sooner has the girl performed the ritual than she regrets it. But it may be too late, as an evil presence known as Pyewacket begins to make itself known -- and threatens to destroy both mother and daughter. Backcountry director Adam MacDonald builds hair-raising tension around what’s both a complex mother-daughter tale and a frightening fable about our darkest desires.
