The genre banner’s strong international slate for the first half of 2022 just keeps growing.

To a lineup that includes A BANQUET, BARBARIANS and HATCHING, IFC Midnight has added the Norwegian chiller THE INNOCENTS (no relation to the 1961 classic), coming to select theaters, VOD and digital platforms May 13. Written and directed by Eskil Vogt (who won awards at last year’s Fantastic Fest and Sitges for the film), it stars Rakel Lenora Fløttum, Alva Brysmo Ramstad, Morten Svartveit, Sam Ashraf, Mina Yasmin Bremseth Asheim and Ellen Dorrit Petersen. The synopsis: “During the bright Nordic summer, a group of children reveal mysterious powers. But what starts out innocent soon takes a dark and violent turn in this gripping supernatural thriller.”
