To celebrate the home entertainment release of PYEWACKET available now on Digital HD and on DVD from the 23rd April 2018, we have a copy of the DVD up for grabs, courtesy of Signature Entertainment!
Forget teen-friendly jump scares and Ouija board pranks – this the real deal, that goes deep into the dark heart of the occult. From the producer of cult hits The Void and The Witch, PYEWACKET can take its place alongside those other-wordly modern horror classics.
Adam MacDonald, who directed the impressive killer bear thriller Backcountry, has crafted a deliciously taut slow burner, with outstanding central performances from Nicole Munoz as witchcraft-obsessed teenager Leah, and The Walking Dead’s Laurie Holden as her mother. As surprising as it is inventive, the film plants a seed of dread from the moment teenager Leah performs an occult ritual in the woods, building to an excruciating climax that will do for the woods what Jaws did for the water. Although there are nods to other genre favourites – thumps in the attic recall The Exorcist, the house in the woods The Evil Dead – PYEWACKET is its own bone-chilling beast.
With an ominous, brooding score (by Bring Me The Horizon’s Lee Malia), PYEWACKET is an unnerving, original terror experience that will delight fear fans in search of a genuine creep out. Take a deep breath and prepare for your nerves to be shattered…
