Spotlight drops horror fantasy Innocence in theaters this month

Last Updated on August 2, 2021

While I'd much rather report on the KICKBOXER remake news swirling around today, AITH guidelines stipulate I steer you toward a movie called INNOCENCE. Thing is, I'm positive more than 95% would rather hear about the former. So be it!

We got a tip today that Spotlight Pictures plans on dropping the film adaptation of INNOCENCE into theaters August 29th. The horror-fantasy comes from director Hillary Brougher, translating the Jane Mendelsohn novel to the big-screen. Sophie Curtis (ARBITRAGE, THE ENGLISH TEACHER) and Graham Phillips (“The Good Wife,” EVAN ALMIGHTY) along with Kelly Reilly (“Black Box”) and Linus Roache (NON-STOP) all star in the flick.

Here's the breakdown:

Haunted by the death and dreams of her beloved mother in a Montauk surfing accident, 16 year old Beckett (Sophie Curtis) and her father, novelist Miles Warner (Linus Roache), move to Manhattan and attempt to piece together their shattered life. Now enrolled at the exclusive Hamilton preparatory school, her psychosis and hallucinations intensify with the dubious suicides of current and past students as does her first love for Tobey Crawford (Graham Phillips). The discovery that her new school may be run by a coven of beautiful and seductive women who perpetuate their youth by drinking the blood of virgins becomes the ultimate challenge of Beckett and Tobey's young lives. INNOCENCE is a chilling allegory of the precarious state of an American teenager, explores themes of loss, the human condition and a society torn between purity and narcissism.

INNOCENCE gets corrupted August 29th. Clock the trailer below and tell us yay or nay!
