Jon Knautz's follow-up to JACK BROOKS: MONSTER SLAYER, the Poland-set THE SHRINE has secured U.S. distribution.
Variety revealed that IFC has picked up the film under its Midnight label. The film tells of "a young American backpacker missing in Europe, and a group of journalists that link his disappearance to a remote village in Poland. They travel there hoping to get the story, but as they unravel the secrets behind this mysterious village, they are suddenly pursued by hostile locals. Unable to escape, they soon become the next victims of ritualistic human sacrifice. Forced into the gruesome reality of true survival horror, the journalists soon discover that this village hides a much darker secret than they could ever imagine."
IFC is having a stellar 2011 with its horror acquisitions including this Friday's STAKE LAND, this past February's WE ARE WHAT WE ARE and June's KIDNAPPED. They also have the incredible KILL LIST on deck, which flat out blew me away at SXSW and I cannot wait for genre fans to see.
