IFC Midnight's Pyewacket gets stunning alternate poster

One of the top films on my must-see list is IFC Midnight's upcoming black magic flick PYEWACKET. I'm all about the film's premise, which follows the tale of a moody teenage girl that accidentally puts a death curse on her mother. And on top of that, the film comes to us from director Adam MacDonald whose "Big Goddamn Bear Attack" movie BACKCOUNTRY impressed the hell out of me when I caught up with it last year.

It is with all of this in mind that I'm counting down the days until I can peep this new movie, and to get us all more excited about the chills the film no doubt has in store, today we have a stunning new alternate poster for your viewing pleasure.

You can check out the cool alternate poster below and then make sure to hit us up and let us know how excited you are about this new film in the comments below or on social media!


When you’re dealing with demons, be careful what you wish for… In this ultra-unsettling occult nightmare, teenage Leah (Nicole Muñoz) finds solace from the recent death of her father—and from her strained relationship with her mother (Laurie Holden)—by dabbling in the dark arts. It all seems like harmless fun at first, until a blow out argument leads Leah to do the unthinkable: put a death curse on her mother. No sooner has the girl performed the ritual than she regrets it. But it may be too late, as an evil presence known as Pyewacket begins to make itself known—and threatens to destroy both mother and daughter.

Backcountry director Adam MacDonald builds hair-raising tension around what’s both a complex mother-daughter tale and a frightening fable about our darkest desires.

PYEWACKET is written and directed by Adam MacDonald and stars Nicole Muñoz, Laurie Holden (THE WALKING DEAD), Chloe Rose, and Eric Osborne. The film hits select theaters and on VOD on March 23.

Extra Tidbit: Pyewacket was one of the familiar spirits of a witch detected by the "witchfinder general" Matthew Hopkins in March 1644 in the town of Manningtree, Essex, England. Hopkins claimed he spied on the witches as they held their meeting close by his house, and heard them mention the name of a local woman.
