Darren Lynn Bousman’s ‘St. Agatha’ Finds A Home For Release
Director Darren Lynn Bousman’s ( Abattoir, Saw II) new female driven horror thriller ‘St. Agatha’ has sold world wide release rights to Octane Pictures at this week’s AFM in Los Angeles, CA.
The film stars Sabrina Kern, Carolyn Hennesy, Courtney Halverson, Trin Miller and Seth Michaels.
We learned from Deadline today that the film is set in the 1950s in small-town Georgia, the film centers on a pregnant con woman named Agatha is on the run and seeks refuge in a convent. What first starts out as the perfect place to have a child turns into a dark layer where silence is forced, ghastly secrets are masked, and every bit of will power Agatha has is tested as she learns the sick and twisted truth of the convent and the odd
people that lurk inside its halls.
“This is exactly the type of project our clients have been looking for – a female-driven, elevated genre film with pedigree that is well-crafted throughout,” said Octane president Jack Campbell. “We’ve seen huge successes in this arena lately, most recently with Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale. From the writing to the acting to the directing and execution – St. Agatha is a cut above anything that I’ve seen in a long time.”
