The alien/paranoia and terrorized-campers subgenres collide in WELCOME TO WILLITS, which arrives in select theaters and on VOD and digital platforms this Friday. We’ve got an exclusive clip from the movie to share with you!
Released by IFC Films under its IFC Midnight banner, WELCOME TO WILLITS marks the directorial debut of Trevor Ryan, from a script by Tim Ryan. Bill Sage (WE ARE WHAT WE ARE), Chris Zylka, Anastasia Baranova, Sabina Gadecki, Garrett Clayton, Thomas Dekker from the LAID TO REST films and the NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET remake and Rory Culkin star, with a special appearance by Dolph Lundgren. The synopsis: “Deep in the woods of Northern California lies the off-the-grid town of Willits, a haven for marijuana growers, meth addicts and conspiracy theorists. When a gaggle of vacationing friends unknowingly set up their campsite on the property of Willits’ most disturbed resident—a psychotic, drug-addled pot farmer convinced extraterrestrials are out to get him—they’re in for one hell of a bad time.”
