RLJE Films, Shudder Acquire ‘The Dark and the Wicked’

Just ahead of the films word premiere at the Fantasia Film Festival, Bryan Bertino’s The Dark and the Wicked was acquired by RLJE Films and Shudder. The film is now set for a theatrical release date of November 6, according to a report on Deadline.

The film follows the events on a secluded farm, a man is slowly dying. Bedridden and fighting through his final breaths, his wife is slowly succumbing to overwhelming grief. To help their mother and say goodbye to their father, siblings Louise (Marin Ireland) and Michael (Michael Abbott Jr.) return to their family farm. It doesn’t take long for them to see that something’s wrong with mom, though—something more than her heavy sorrow. Gradually, as their own grief mounts, Louise and Michael begin suffering from a darkness similar to their mother’s, marked by waking nightmares and a growing sense that something evil is taking over their family.

Written and directed by Bryan Bertino, The Dark and the Wicked stars Marin Ireland, Michael Abbott Jr., Xander Berkeley, Lynn Andrews, Julie Oliver-Touchstone and Tom Nowicki.
