SXSW Midnight Deals: 'Haunter' Goes to IFC, Drafthouse Films Looking for 'Cheap Thrills'


Per usual, genre flicks are selling at SXSW. IFC Midnight has snapped up rights to Midnight entry Vincenzo Natali’s “Haunter,” starring Abigail Breslin as a girl perpetually on the eve of her 16th birthday, fated to relive the day before she and her family were all murdered. “Haunter” is Natali’s follow-up to 2011’s “Splice,” starring Sarah Polley and Adrian Brody.

Drafthouse Films has picked up the Midnight entry “Cheap Thrills,” starring Pat Healy (“The Innkeepers,” “Compliance”) as a broke family man willing to take on a series of increasingly disturbing challenges from a rich family as a means of quick cash. The film is the directorial debut of E.L Katz.
