The Tribeca Film Festival world premiere is heading for wider release next year.
Magnet Releasing will bring THE SEEDING to select theaters and VOD January 26. Written and directed by filmmaker/artist Barnaby Clay, who has won awards for his short work, it stars Scott Haze and Kate Lyn Sheil (V/H/S, YOU’RE NEXT, SHE DIES TOMORROW). The synopsis: “In THE SEEDING, a hiker lost in the desert takes refuge with a woman living alone, and soon discovers that she might not be there willingly.”
“THE SEEDING deals with big themes, but in a small, contained way,” Clay says, “almost like a brutal adult version of a children’s story or fable–something to bore under your skin and stick around for a while. I hope, like all great horror, it speaks some truth about human nature, even if it’s a side we’d rather not see.”
Artist Akiko Stehrenberger created the poster seen below, and Clay says, “Akiko’s artwork for the film is perfection. I was so happy when I saw the finished poster because not only was it stunning, but I really felt she created something that truly represents the film, stylistically and thematically. I’m so happy to have this be ’the face’ of this movie.”
