World sales rights for the Erik Bloomquist-directed (Ten Minutes to Midnight, Long Lost) ’80s-set summer camp horror film She Came from the Woods has just been acquired ahead of its world premiere at FrightFest in London.
Deadline reports that Blue Finch Films made the acquisition.
She Came from the Woods follows “a group of counsellors who accidentally unleash an ancient evil spirit on the last night of a summer camp. As the situation turns bloody, the group is forced to confront what stories are worth telling and what secrets are worth keeping.”
“She Came From The Woods is a refreshing, riotously fun take on a classic horror sub-genre. Filled with familiar faces, Erik and Carson have really delivered on a great premise,” said Blue Finch Films managing director Mike Chapman.
“We are gratified to have found such kindred spirits in the team at Blue Finch,” said the Bloomquist Brothers. “Moving into late summer and fall, we’re elated to commune with genre fans and finally share our coming-of-age campfire tale with the world.”
She Came from the Woods stars Cara Buono (“Stranger Things”, “Mad Men”), William Sadler (Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey, Demon Knight, VFW, The Grudge), Clare Foley (Sinister), Spencer List (Good Trouble), Michael Park (“Stranger Things”) and Tyler Elliot Burke (The Punisher).
Rounding out the ensemble cast are Adam Weppler (Ten Minutes to Midnight), Ehad Berisha (Billions), Dan Leahy (Dave), Giselle Torres (The Big Show Show), Sienna Hubert-Ross (Almost Love), Emily Keefe (Intermedium), Erik Bloomquist (Weekenders), Madeleine Dauer (The Murder Pact), Juliana Davies (The Post), Declan Foley (My Adventures with Santa), Tess Santarsiero (Christmas on the Carousel), Cory Asinofsky, Cody Boccia, and newcomer Coulter Ibanez.
The Bloomquist Brothers produced She Came from the Woods under their production outfit Mainframe Pictures alongside Buono, Sadler, and Adam Weppler.
Blue Finch Films will launch sales at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.
