THE WRETCHED (2019)
NAME OF FILM: THE WRETCHED (2019)
DIRECTOR(S): Brett Pierce, Drew T. Pierce
STARRING: John-Paul Howard, Piper Curda and Azie Tesfai
GENRE: Horror Film
SYNOPSIS: Filmmaking brothers Brett and Drew Pierce return to the festival (their last film, Deadheads, was a TCFF sellout sensation) with their latest macabre occult thrill ride. Shot mostly in Northern Michigan and featuring many familiar locations such as the Sunset Lodge in Omena and the G. Marsten Dame Marina in Northport, The Wretched tells the story of a teenager who discovers that he’s living next door to a thousand-year-old witch. The film is a dead serious new spin on witchcraft cinema, with a fresh set of rules, relatable teen characters, surprising scares, comic touches, and a cauldron of gruesomely imaginative special effects makeup.
