A young woman reeling from the death of her father dabbles into the dark arts after an argument with her mother and awakens an evil entity known as Pyewacket.

In this ultra-unsettling occult nightmare, teenage Leah (Nicole Muñoz) finds solace from the recent death of her father-and from her strained relationship with her mother (Laurie Holden)--by dabbling in the dark arts. It all seems like harmless fun at first, until a blow out argument leads Leah to do the unthinkable: put a death curse on her mother. No sooner has the girl performed the ritual than she regrets it. But it may be too late, as an evil presence known as Pyewacket begins to make itself known--and threatens to destroy both mother and daughter.

Critic Quotes:
“As a psychodrama about a troubled mother and daughter, this movie is gripping from start to finish.” - Los Angeles Times
“When it comes to horror movies that leave the biggest impression on me as a viewer, it's usually the films that tap into my emotional core that hit me the hardest, which is why Pyewacket hit me with such a ferocious gut punch.” - Daily Dead
“Pyewacket is a slow burn chiller that is all the more impressive for its subtlety.” - The Hollywood Reporter
