Kidnappers picked the wrong victim: It’s not an uncommon horror trope, but House on Willow Street (originally titled From a House on Willow Street) is flipping preconceived expectations on their head; it’s a crime thriller with a supernatural twist. This time, the taken one isn’t secretly a martial arts expert or the child of Liam Neeson—she’s possessed! If it sounds too outlandish to be scary think again! Check out the trailer and synopsis below.
Official Synopsis: The perfect kidnapping goes gruesomely awry in this shock-a-minute, supernatural wild ride. Led by the tough-as-nails Hazel (Sharni Vinson), a band of desperate criminals abduct Katherine (Carlyn Burchell), the daughter of an ultra-wealthy family, for ransom. What the gang doesn’t realize is that although they have Katherine’s body, her soul is already in possession of a demonic force that’s about to turn the tables on them. Cue a cavalcade of carnage, all building up to a totally twisted, off-the-rails finale.
When will criminals learn that easy money is never really easy?
House on Willow Street is directed by Alastair Orr from a screenplay penned by Catherine Blackman and Jonathan Jordaan; the film stars Carlyn Burchell, Gustav Gerdener, and Zino Ventura. Look for House on Willow Street on VOD beginning March 24th via IFC Midnight.
