They’ve got a black magic woman, and her devilish powers live on after her demise.

Well Go USA has announced a January 17 release on digital platforms, Blu-ray and DVD for DEATH KNOT, the directorial debut of Indonesian actor Cornelio Sunny, who also stars and scripted the movie with Ike Klose. The cast additionally includes Widika Sidmore, Morgan Oey and Djenar Maesa Ayu; the synopsis: “After the sudden suicide of their estranged mother, two siblings return to their hometown and are immediately confronted by angry villagers. Convinced that the woman was a devotee of a dangerous brand of black magic deemed responsible for a string of mysterious deaths over many years, the locals demand that the siblings leave and allow for the burning of their childhood home in order to rid the town of the curse. While initially skeptical, a string of strange occurrences leads the siblings to believe there may be more truth to the rumors than they ever dreamed possible.”
