Midnight Releasing announced it will release She Who Must Burn on Cable VOD, Digital HD, and DVD on October 11.
The film from Larry Kent and co-writer Shane Twerdun debuted at last year’s Fantasia International Film Festival. It stars Jewel Staite (Firely, Stargate: Atlantis), and follows a healthcare provider “at odds with the evangelical family in her small town.” The synopsis is as follows:
A deadly storm heads towards a small mining village as the local preacher feeds the dark resentments seething in the souls of its citizens. Angela is the only medical resource for women in this unfortunate town where stillbirths and cancer have become disturbingly common. The local preacher and his followers blame Angela for the miscarriages and deaths, and even her Deputy Sheriff boyfriend can’t protect her from their wrath. Dark clouds gather as the preacher’s followers, infected with religious fervor and inflamed with passionate righteousness, seek to cleanse their community. Those who sin against the Lord must pay.
On October 11, you’ll be able to buy or rent the film from Dish Network, Cox, Charter, Verizon Fios, DirecTV, iTunes, Amazon Instant, Google Play, Vudu, XBox, etc.
