Bruce McDonald’s horror world premiered at Sundance.

IFC Midnight has acquired US rights to Hellions.

Directed by Bruce McDonald, the horror world premiered at Sundance and centres on a teenager who, when home alone on Halloween, has to defend herself against a group of masked demonic beings.

The deal was negotiated by Sean Berney, manager of acquisitions for IFC Midnight, with Nate Bolotin of XYZ Films on behalf of the filmmakers.

It is the third Sundance ‘Park City at Midnight’ title acquired by IFC Midnight this year, following Corin Hardy’s The Hallow and JM Cravioto’s Reversal.

Hellions is produced by Frank Siracusa and Paul Lenart, and stars Chloe Rose, Robert Patrick, Rossif Sutherland, Rachel Wilson, Peter DaCunha and Luke Bilyk.
