The film “follows Melissa and her family as they seek shelter from a storm and become trapped. With no sign of rescue, hours turn to days and Melissa comes to realize that she and her girlfriend Amy might have something to do with the horrors that threaten to tear her family-and the entire world-apart.”
Max Booth III adapted his own novel of the same name for the screen. The film is directed by Sean King O’Grady (Land Grab); this is his debut narrative feature.
Vinessa Shaw (Hocus Pocus) stars in the film along with Sierra McCormick (All Good Things), Pat Healy (The Innkeepers), John James Cronin (NOS4A2), and Lisette Alexis (Total Eclipse).
“It requires incredible skill to be able to ratchet up that much tension from just a few very key ingredients,” Arianna Bocco, President of IFC Films said in a press release this morning, “and Sean executes his debut with absolute precision and a much needed sense of humor. IFC Midnight is thrilled to bring this wildly entertaining yet disturbing chiller to audiences nationwide.”
“It amazes me that anyone would be willing to distribute the hilariously sick film we concocted to exorcise our own personal pandemic demons,” O’Grady added, “but we are all excited to have bold and passionate partners in IFC Midnight to bring this insane movie to unsuspecting audiences all over North America.”
We Need to Do Something will premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival which is set to run from June 9-20, 2021. There is no word yet on when and how the film will be distributed beyond that. iHorror will keep you posted on those details as they become available.
