Nicholas McCarthy brought us The Pact (2012) and recently released the new horror At The Devil’s Door (2014) aka Home (2014). IFC Midnight and MPI Media Group is bringing At the Devil’s Door home on Blu-ray and DVD this upcoming December 16, 2014. I like the tagline “It’s Looking for a Home.” Cast in At the Devil’s Door are Catalina Sandino Moreno, Naya Rivera and Ashley Rickards.
From the Press Release:
A real estate agent looking to sell a house must deal with a satanic presence that just won’t vacate the premises in AT THE DEVIL’S DOOR, a star-studded shocker that will have home audiences cringing when it comes to Blu-ray and DVD on December 16, 2014, via IFC Midnight and MPI Media Group, with SRPs, respectively, of $29.98 and $24.98.
When ambitious young real estate agent Leigh (Best Actress Academy Award nominee Catalina Sandino Moreno, Maria Full of Grace, Che, Red Band Society) is asked to sell a house with a checkered past, she crosses paths with a disturbed, possibly abused teenaged girl who seems to be a squatter in the empty house - and who, Leigh learns, is the runaway daughter of the couple selling the property.
When Leigh tries to intervene and help her, she becomes entangled with a supernatural force that soon pulls Leigh’s artist sister Vera (Naya Rivera, Glee) into its web and has sinister plans for both of them. Ashley Rickards of MTV’s hit series Awkward also stars.
With nail-biting terror, writer-director Nicholas McCarthy’s (The Pact) AT THE DEVIL’S DOOR is an unforgettable venture into the supernatural. "If spookhouse immersion is your horror-flick bottom line, you’ll relish AT THE DEVIL’S DOOR," said Alan Scherstuhl of The Village Voice. Wrote Aisle Seat’s Mike McGranaghan, "Containing some genuinely gutsy, unexpected twists, [the film] cheerfully plays with your expectations, pulling the rug out from under you whenever it damn well pleases."
The film had its world premiere at the SXSW Film Festival and screened to acclaim at other international festivals before receiving a national theatrical release from IFC Midnight.
