While flying to his father’s funeral in rural Appalachia, an intense storm causes Marquis (Omari Hardwick) to lose control of the plane carrying him and his family. He awakens wounded, alone and trapped in Ms. Eloise’s (Loretta Devine) attic, who claims she can nurse him back to health with the Boogity, a Hoodoo figure she has made from his blood and skin. Unable to call for help, Marquis desperately tries to outwit and break free from her dark magic and save his family from a sinister ritual before the rise of the blood moon.
Alongside the Power alum and This Christmas star, the cast for the film includes John Beasley (The Sum of All Fears, The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks).
The film is written Kurt Wimmer (Children of the Corn, Law Abiding Citizen) and directed by Mike Tonderai (House at the End of the Street, Locke & Key) and is produced by Morris Chestnut (The Resident, The Enemy Within), Gordon Gray (Most Dangerous Game, The Way Back), Janine van Assen (Tomb Raider, Serenity), Brian Wilkins (Darrow & Darrow, Lost in America) and Wimmer.
