Darren Lynn Bousman’s female-driven horror film St. Agatha gets distribution

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

Director Darren Lynn Bousman (SAW IISAW IV) is one busy mofo. It seems he has a new film hitting every six months. Not that we're complaining at all. I say keep making them and we'll keep watching.

Speaking of which, Bousman's new female-driven psychological horror film ST. AGATHA has just sold it's worldwide sales rights to Octane Entertainment. 

Octane president Jack Campbell on ST. AGATHA:

This is exactly the type of project our clients have been looking for – a female-driven, elevated genre film with pedigree that is well-crafted throughout. We’ve seen huge successes in this arena lately, most recently with Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale. From the writing to the acting to the directing and execution – St. Agatha is a cut above anything that I’ve seen in a long time.

ST. AGATHA synopsis:

Set in the 1950s in small-town Georgia, the film centers on a pregnant con woman named Agatha is on the run and seeks refuge in a convent.

ST. AGATHA is directed by Darren Lynn Bousman from a script by Andy Demetrio, Shaun Fletcher, Sara Sometti Michaels and Clint Sears. The film stars Sabrina Kern, Carolyn Hennesy, Courtney Halverson, Trin Miller and Seth Michaels. Sara Sometti Michaels, Srdjan Stakic and Tara Ansley are producers and Kevin Traier, Rick Leand Seth Michaels are exec producers.

The film is now in postproduction. We'll let you know when we hear more.
