‘The Damning Of A Country Merchant’ Signs Two Leads

by Thomas Tuna

This horror stays all in the family.

The Damning of a Country Merchant–described as a “twisted horror”–has its two lead actors on board as filming is gearing up in Belgium, according to a report on Deadline.

Peter Sarsgaard (The Batman) and Mackenzie Davis (Station Eleven) will work with writer/director Matthew Rosenbaum in his feature directorial debut. Christian Hall, Eric Cook, Andy Starke, Reuben Walker and David Levine will produce.

The film–set in 1910 Indiana–follows the patriarch of a rural mercantile family (Sarsgaard) “whose way of life is suddenly disrupted by a charismatic industrialist who has a secret affair with his wife (Davis),” according to the synopsis.

And, when tensions mistakenly lead to the death of a customer, the merchant’s “wounded authority and masculinity leave him vulnerable to bizarre and horrific forces that cause unimaginable chaos and terror.”
