An innocent girl becomes the target of sorcery in a new independent frightfest just acquired for release. Read on for the details and an exclusive peek at the promo material.

Wild Eye Releasing gave us the word that it has picked up IT’S JUST A GAME and will unleash it in October. Written and directed by Daniel Emery Taylor, the Alabama-lensed film stars Hannah Cohen-Lawlor, Sarah Kopkin, Leah Hudspeth, Rachel Marshall, Alicia Clark and G. Larry Butler. The synopsis: “Brianna [Cohen-Lawlor] is a shy, bashful teen who is constantly getting humiliated by the other girls in her social circle. Her circumstances change when she is kidnapped by a bizarre theatre cult intent on summoning an ancient witch.”
