Cast includes Nick Tucci, Wendy Glenn, AJ Bowen, Joe Swanberg, Margaret Laney, Amy Seimetz, Ti West, Calvin Reeder, Larry Fessenden, Kate Lyn Sheil and Rob Moran.

Wingard and Barrett teamed on “A Horrible Way to Die,” which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and will be released by Anchor Bay.
