It’s no coincidence that, just after 15-year-old Faith (Naomi Battrick) learns that her sick father has only a few months to live, her school’s new field hockey coach Sissy (Anna Walton) takes an unusual interest in her. Sissy matter-of-factly reveals that she’s the leader of a coven of witches and has the power to cure Faith’s dad—as long as she agrees to bear a very special child for her. No spoilers here, this is just the setup for Faith’s nightmarish downward spiral, centering around a cherry tree—which according to local folklore, is nourished by the blood of human sacrifice. Will Faith keep up her end of the bargain? One thing’s for sure: if you don’t like centipedes, this film is guaranteed to freak you out! An MPI/Dark Sky Films release.
