IT HATCHED (2021) Preview of demonic comedy horror



‘A nightmare is born’

It Hatched is a 2021 comedy horror film about a young couple who open up a guesthouse but discover they have unwittingly unleashed a demon.

Directed by Elvar Gunnarsson from a screenplay co-written with Ingimar Sveinsson based on a story by Magnús Ómarsson. Produced by Heimir Bjarnason, Elvar Gunnarsson, Vilius Petrikas and Birkir Sigurjónsson.

The Icelandic Hero Productions movie stars Vivian Ólafsdóttir, Gunnar Kristinsson, Halldóra Geirharðsdóttir, Þór Tulinius, Halldór Gylfason and Björn Jörundur Friðbjörnsson.



Mira and Pétur travel from Nashville, Tennessee, to Iceland, where they’re planning to open a guesthouse by a remote fjord. Their plans are soon altered when an ancient Icelandic demon starts harassing them with vivid night terrors.

What follows is a chain of events that include Pétur facing dementia, Mira laying an infant-sized egg and them both squaring up against the tall task of… parenting.


It Hatched premiered at the Austin Film Festival on 21 October 2021.
