Andy Mitton, who created the much-praised chillers YELLOWBRICKROAD and WE GO ON with Jesse Holland, goes solo with the supernatural frightfest THE WITCH IN THE WINDOW, which world-premieres at Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival next month. Check out the trailer after the jump.
Written and directed by Mitton, the WITCH AT THE WINDOW is a Shudder presentation starring Alex Draper, Charlie Tacker, with Greg Naughton, Arija Bareikis, and Carol Stanzione. The synopsis: “THE WITCH IN THE WINDOW focuses on separated father Simon [Draper] and his estranged 12-year-old son Finn [Tacker], who head to Vermont to repair an old farmhouse and encounter the malicious spirit of a previous owner, an infamously cruel woman named Lydia [Stanzione]. With every repair Simon makes, he’s also making her spirit stronger…until a terrifying encounter leaves him doubting whether he can protect his son from the evil that’s making its way into their heads, and hearts.” You can keep up with the film at its Facebook page.
