Feel the “ANGUISH” from fest-fave teen-terror film in DecemberMovies/TV,News Michael Gingold
One of the highlights of this past summer’s Fantasia film festival, Sonny Mallhi’s ANGUISH is now due to frighten fans nationwide this winter.
Gravitas Ventures has announced that it has acquired North American rights to ANGUISH, and will release it in select theaters and on-demand December 18. The directorial debut of scripter Sonny Mallhi, who producing credits include AT THE DEVIL’S DOOR and THE STRANGERS, ANGUISH (which we raved about here) stars SURVEILLANCE’s Ryan Simpkins as “a teenage girl finally old enough to understand that the cause of her psychological problems is a supernatural ‘gift’ that allows spirits to take over her body,” per the official synopsis. “Now that she understands what is happening to her, she must decide whether she wants to keep fighting or succumb to the soul of a recently deceased girl who refuses to leave.” The cast also includes Annika Marks, Karina Logue, Cliff Chamerlain and Amberley Gridley; look for more ANGUISH coverage here and in Fango’s pages as the release date draws closer.
