One of the films I’m most looking forward to checking out this year is writer-director Andy Mitton’s The Witch In The Window. I saw the film’s title a few weeks back while reporting on this year’s Fantasia Film Festival and based solely on the spooky title, the film jumped to the near-top of my must-see list.
And today we have an all-new imagine! Not only that, but we also have word via Screen Daily that Shudder has picked up streaming rights to the film for UK, US, Canada, Germany, Australia and New Zealand.
The Witch in the Window is written and directed by Andy Mitton (We Go On, YellowBrickRoad) and stars Alex Draper (Yellowbrickroad), Arija Bareikis (The Purge) and Charlie Tacker. Mitton with Richard W. King produce.
The film will host its world premiere at Fantasia this summer.
A house-flipper named Simon and his twelve-year-old son, Finn, decide to bring an old New England farmhouse back to life. But a previous owner who died there, a witch of a woman named Lydia, doesn’t seem to have really left.
