IFC Midnight’s upcoming horror film Welcome to Willits will be coming out in limited theaters, VOD, and digital platforms in the U.S. on September 22nd. To give you a taste of the drug-induced alien madness that’s going on, a trailer has been released along with a new poster, both of which can be seen below.
Bill Sage, Dolph Lundgren, Anastasia Baranova, Sabina Gadecki, Rory Culkin, Thomas Dekker, Chris Zylka, Garrett Clayton, Karrueche Tran, and Keelin Woodell star in the flick from director Trevor Ryan. Written by his brother, Tim Ryan, the film is adapted from their acclaimed 2015 SXSW Midnight Short Welcome to Willits: After Sundown.
The film is produced by Jordan Yale Levine, Scott Levenson, and Jon Keeyes of Yale Productions and Shaun Sanghani of SSS Entertainment. Matthew Helderman and Luke Taylor serve as executive producers alongside Patrick DePeters of BondIt Media Capital, Michael Rothstein, Brandon Baker, and Serge Levin (who also co-stars).
Aliens, burnouts, and clueless campers collide in this bloody and bonkers slasher freak-out. Deep in the woods of Northern California lies the off-the-grid town of Willits, a haven for marijuana growers, meth addicts, and conspiracy theorists. When a gaggle of vacationing friends unknowingly set up their campsite on the property of Willits’ most disturbed resident—a psychotic, drug-addled pot farmer convinced extraterrestrials are out to get him—they’re in for one hell of a bad time.
