Dark Sky Films and Snowfort Pictures are teaming up for “Satanic Panic,” a horror movie directed by Ted Geoghegan.

The official synopsis reads: “‘Satanic Panic’ centers
on a minimum-wage delivery girl who is forced into a night-long battle
with the rich and affluent leaders of a suburban community after
discovering they’re part of a satanic cult.”

Of the film, Geoghegan said, “Equal parts
supernatural horror and survival thriller, the film hinges on smart,
funny dialogue and a clever, surprisingly badass female hero. A
snarky, splattery takedown of the 1%, it places a trod-upon heroine up
against the literally soulless societal upper crust. The banter and
blood come fast and furious, and we’re hoping to leave very little time
to breathe between gasps and gags.”

“‘We Are Still Here’ was incredibly well received by both critics and audiences alike,” said Greg Newman, executive VP of MPI and Dark Sky Films. “We’re happy to be working again with Ted Geoghegan, who has already created a unique voice and vision for modern horror.”

In addition to the direction by Geoghegan, whose first film was “We Are Still Here,” the script for “Satanic Panic” is being penned by novelist Grady Hendrix.
