1091 Pictures, a Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment company, will release the psychological horror film Nix on all major digital platforms on Sept. 27.
Directed by Anthony C. Ferrante (Sharknado) and written by Skyler Caleb, James Zimbardi, Woodrow Wilson Hancock III and Ferrante, the film stars Zimbardi (Awaken the Shadowman), Dee Wallace (Halloween, E.T.) and Michael Pare (Streets of Fire). The film was financed by executive producer Gary Rubens and is produced by Hancock.
A psychological horror film inspired by Germanic folklore, the story of Nix follows a tragedy at a mysterious lake and its frightening consequences as a shattered family unravels the truth.
Nix is Ferrante’s first dramatic horror film since 2005’s Boo.
“Once we landed on the concept of Nix and realized its potential, I was excited to return to my horror roots with this elevated, original horror movie,” Ferrante said. “It was also a chance to dig deep into these fractured, haunted characters and explore the depth and emotion within this dark setting while still delivering solid thrills and chills. I’m very proud of the film we created and excited to work with 1091 Pictures to unleash it this fall just in time for Halloween.”
