Sophia Lillis (IT), Sammy Leakey, Charles Babalola, Alice Krige (SLEEPWALKERS, STAR TREK: FIRST CONTACT) and Jessica De Gouw star, and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones (SINISTER, UPGRADE) and Fred Berger (DESTROYER) produced. The synopsis: “A long time ago in a distant fairytale countryside, a young girl [Lillis] leads her little brother [Leakey] into a dark wood in desperate search of food and work, only to stumble upon a nexus of terrifying evil.”
