Family and folk horror combine in the film coming next month.
FLEE THE LIGHT, which we last reported on here, will be released February 15 by Breaking Glass Pictures on VOD platforms including iTunes/Apple TV, Amazon, Google Play, Vudu, Vimeo and local cable and satellite providers. Written and produced by Jennifer Mancini of Mythic Trips Entertainment, it stars Annie Tuma, Ariana Marquis, Canadian singer/songwriter Jane Siberry, Jamar Adams Thompson, Caroline Raynaud and Leanne Ofori-Atta. The synopsis: “The film follows sisters Andra [Tuma] and Delfi [Marquis], who travel to a remote town after Delfi insists she was once a witch and they must visit the sacred place of her coven. While there, Andra is infected with an evil force and now it’s up to Delfi to save her sister from a fate worse than death.”
“Breaking Glass Pictures and Wazabi Films, our international partners, have been supporting this film since before we got our first piece of financing,” says Mancini. “We’re elated to have come this far, and to continue working together, bringing FLEE THE LIGHT to the widest possible audience.”
“FLEE THE LIGHT is a harrowing story about two sisters plagued by a sinister force and really highlights the power of women filmmakers in the horror space,” says Breaking Glass CEO Rich Wolff. “We are thrilled to add this film to our catalogue and bring such a powerful emerging talent to audiences.”
