This Halloween just got a little spookier.
Two Witches–recently acquired by Arrow Films for distribution–is expected to have its theatrical debut in October, according to a report in Variety.
The film–which enjoyed a successful world premiere at the Salem Horror Film Festival–is described as a combination of Rosemary’s Baby and Drag Me to Hell. Pierre Tsigaridis–who wrote the screenplay–is also making his directorial feature debut with this movie.
In Two Witches, a young woman with violent impulses named Masha (Rebekah Kennedy) “waits to inherit her grandmother’s powers,” according to the synopsis.
Meanwhile, the pregnant Sarah (Belle Adams) is “unable to convince her boyfriend and his friends that creepy things have been happening ever since a strange woman gave her the evil eye in a restaurant.”
The film–which also stars Kristina Klebe (2007’s Halloween) and Tim Fox (Westworld)–is co-written by producer Maxime Rancon.
Francesco Simeoni, Arrow Film’s director of content, said Tsigaridis and Rancon are “exciting new talents who we are sure are going to get everyone hyped for witches–which they tackle in a fun and creepy way.”
Tsigaridis added that he wanted to “put evil witches back on the map. We made a film that creates a new world around witchery that hasn’t been explored quite like this before.”
