The next horror movie from Hallowed Ground and The Dinner Party director Miles Doleac is titled Demigod, starring Rachel Nichols and acquired by Gravitas Ventures.
As we learned this week, Gravitas will release Demigod in US theaters in “late October,” with a day-and-date release that will bring the film to streaming on the very same day.
Demigod is said to be a “macabre riff on the Cernunnos myth,” and Bloody Disgusting has been provided with an exclusive first-look image. Check it out below and read on for more info.
Nichols (The Amityville Horror, The Woods, P2) “will play Robin, who travels with her husband (Yohance Myles) to Germany’s Black Forest upon learning that her huntsman grandfather has died and left her all his worldly possessions. Upon arrival, a terrifying secret forces her to reckon with her family’s past and a mysterious ritual she thought was the stuff of fairy tales.”
Miles Doleac, Lindsay Anne Williams, Elena Sanchez, and Jeremy London also star.
Michael Donovan Horn wrote the script with Doleac.
“Miles has crafted a terrifying horror film with an atmospheric setting that is a natural fit for the Halloween crowd. We look forward to presenting it to North American audiences,” said Tony Piantedosi, Vice President of Acquisitions at Gravitas Ventures.
Rachel Nichols said, “Demigod was my first ‘pandemic’ project. I was definitely apprehensive about returning to work, but I read the script and I was intrigued, so I decided that it was time to get back on set. I’ve never worked with a director who was also acting in the film, but I was amazed by how easily Miles handled wearing those two hats (and many other hats) throughout filming. It was very impressive and also showed me that I was in very good hands.”
