The Americans’ Holly Taylor and genre veteran Paget Brewster are the biggest names in The Witch Files – a smarter than necessary tween horror-comedy that isn’t quite scary enough to be a scary movie, or funny enough to be a comedy.
It hits a kind of sweet spot in between that produces a few chills and a few laughs while creating a group of characters that find themselves in wish fulfillment situation that has less than desirable side effects.
Part gothic fairytale and part chilling horror, The Dark balances rich imagery with a brutal and bloody story of unlikely kindred spirits who must defend themselves against the villainous powers of the ‘normal’ world.
The Dark will be in select theaters and on VOD on October 26th.
While spending a dull detention together, an unlikely gathering of teenage girls discovers one of their group may possess supernatural powers. Intrigued, they follow her into the local woods, where they harness the ambient energy of witches who were persecuted there hundreds of years ago.
Directed by Kyle Rankin (Night of the Living Debs), The Witch Files stars Paget Brewster (Community, Criminal Minds), Holly Taylor (The Americans) and Greg Finley (The Secret Life of the American Teen).
The Witch Files will be available on Digital and DVD on October 9th.
