NEW YORK – FilmRise has acquired North American home media rights to THE INHABITANTS, the new supernatural thriller from the writers of JOHN CARPENTER’S THE WARD. The Brooklyn-based film and TV distributor will release the film January 5, 2016 on DVD and Blu-ray. The discs will include an exclusive behind-the-scenes featurette as well as the film’s trailer.
THE INHABITANTS was shot inside one of the oldest haunted houses in New England, which at one time was home to the Salem Witch Trial children. The Noyes-Parris House (c. 1669) was owned by the infamous Rev. Samuel Parris who was the father of Betty Parris and uncle to Abigail Williams, the two girls who made the initial accusations that led to the tragic witch trials that took place in Salem, Massachusetts.
Written and directed by Michael and Shawn Rasmussen, the screenwriting team behind JOHN CARPENTER’S THE WARD, and produced by international bestselling author Glenn Cooper (LIBRARY OF THE DEAD trilogy), THE INHABITANTS revolves around a young couple that gets more than they bargained for when they renovate a neglected bed and breakfast in New England. After a series of disturbing events, the husband begins to suspect that something evil is lurking within the walls of this old house, and whatever it is has set its sights on his wife. Now he must fight to uncover the inn’s dark secret before this malicious spirit consumes everything he loves.
