This movie follows the story of a rebellious teenage boy named Ben (John-Paul Howard). After his parents separated, he is sent to live with his father for the summer and work at the local marina in order to gain some form of discipline. The tourist town offers little solace for him, however, as he is forced to deal with the local teens and his father’s new girlfriend.
Ben’s problems grow increasingly disturbing when he makes a frightening discovery about the family renting the house next door. A malevolent spirit from the woods has taken ahold of the parents and starts playing a sinister game of house, preying upon the children and wiping away any trace of their existence. Ben’s suspicions of the supernatural horrors go unheeded and he launches a dangerous mission to stop the skin-walking witch’s reign of terror.
The Wretched is both written and directed by Brett Pierce and Drew T. Pierce, aka as the “Pierce Brothers” (Deadheads, Secrets of Fenville).
