Uncork’d Entertainment has acquired all North American rights to St. Agatha, the latest film from Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II, III, IV). The female-driven psychological horror film premiered at the Overlook Film Festival in April.
Uncork’d Entertainment President Keith Leopard negotiated the deal with Jack Campbell, President of Octane Entertainment.
“With brilliant direction from one of the new masters of horror and a unique and chilling script that features strong female characters, we’re certain audiences are going to really embrace St. Agatha,” says Leopard. “Uncork’d is honored to be releasing such an incredible film”.
“We are extremely excited to be teaming up with Uncork’d on the North American release for St. Agatha,” adds Campbell. “The capable hands of Keith and his team give us the confidence that this film will have a very successful release.”
“After many offers, we have found the perfect home for St. Agatha at Uncork’d Entertainment and we are very excited to be working together,” agreed Sara Sometti Michaels.
St. Agatha is directed by Darren Lynn Bousman (Saw II-IV) from a script written by Andy Demetrio, Shaun Fletcher, Sara Sometti Michaels, and Clint Sears and stars Sabrina Kern, Carolyn Hennesy, Courtney Halverson, Seth Michaels, Trin Miller, Lindsay Seim, Shaun Fletcher, and Maximus Murrah.
It’s produced by Sara Sometti Michaels, Srdjan Stakic, and Tara Ansley (Tragedy Girls) and was executive produced by Kevin Traier, Rick Le, and Seth Michaels. Uncork’d will release theatrically and on digital first quarter 2019.
St. Agatha is set in 1950’s Georgia and fixes on a pregnant con woman who is on the run and seeks refuge in a convent. What first starts out as the perfect place to have a child turns into a dark lair where silence is forced, ghastly secrets are masked, and every bit of willpower Agatha has is tested as she learns the sick and twisted truth of the convent and the odd people that lurk inside its halls.
