Adam MacDonald - 2018 - 88m - An ALIBI MIDNIGHT MOVIE MADNESS special - $8 Gen. / $6 Stu.


When you’re dealing with demons, be careful what you wish for… In this ultra-unsettling occult nightmare, teenage Leah (Nicole Muñoz) finds solace from the recent death of her father—and from her strained relationship with her mother (Laurie Holden)—by dabbling in the dark arts. It all seems like harmless fun at first, until a blow out argument leads Leah to do the unthinkable: put a death curse on her mother. No sooner has the girl performed the ritual than she regrets it. But it may be too late, as an evil presence known as Pyewacket begins to make itself known—and threatens to destroy both mother and daughter. Backcountry director Adam MacDonald builds hair-raising tension around what’s both a complex mother-daughter tale and a frightening fable about our darkest desires.

“It's the rare horror film that's actually more effective in psychological terms than in suspense ones.” - Dennis Harvey, Variety

As a psychodrama about a troubled mother and daughter, this movie is gripping from start to finish.” - Noel Murray, Los Angeles Times

“Pyewacket is a slow burn chiller that is all the more impressive for its subtlety.” - Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
