The Burned Over District is a 2022 American horror film about a grieving man who discovers a quiet town is hiding a very terrifying secret. Now he must find a way to overcome his grief and fight back against the darkness that has consumed the town and its people.
After losing his wife in a horrific car accident, grieving widower Will Pleasance (Jon Sheedy) retreats to a quiet town in Western New York. His respite is cut short when he discovers that the town and its residents are hiding a dark and terrible secret.
Together Will and his sister Katie (Amy Zubieta) must fight to survive the ancient darkness that has consumed The Burned Over District…
“The Burned Over District is written and directed by Rochester natives James and Vince Coleman, and based on actual historic events that occurred near their hometown in the 1800s. Special Effects veteran Michael Del Rossa (Humanoids From the Deep, 300) splatters the screen with his visceral creations in what is said to be Pet Sematary meets Mandy, with a little Hereditary thrown in the mix.”
The film is currently in post-production and will be completed in May 2022.
