On March 11th, writer/director Phil Wurtzel's A HAUNTING IN CAWDOR will be released into theatres in ten markets across the United States, including Los Angeles and New York. Described as "a frightening twist on Shakespeare's Macbeth", the film stars SAW's Cary Elwes, Shelby Young, Michael Welch, and Alexandria DeBerry.
The story centers on
Vivian Miller (Young), a young woman who's serving out her jail sentence at a work release program in the Midwest. Her 90 days of probation takes her to The Cawdor Barn Theatre, a dilapidated summer stock theater run by Lawrence O'Neil (Elwes). Lawrence, a failed Broadway director, is now reduced to staging amateur productions with young parolees and raging over the mistakes from his past. Vivian's arrival in Cawdor starts a terrifying series of events that brings Lawrence's secret past to the present. After Vivian views an old taped stage production of Macbeth, a force of evil is unleashed which soon turns its sights on her. With the help of Roddy (Welch), a local outcast, Vivian sets about trying to discover who the supernatural killer on the tape is before she becomes the next victim.
There doesn't seem to be a list of theatres available, so you'll have to start checking your local listings to find out if A HAUNTING IN CAWDOR will be showing in your area. If not, the film will also be available on VOD on the 11th.
