Magnet Releasing has snapped up North American rights to Adrian Garcia Bogliano’s “Here Comes the Devil.”
Deal was announced Thursday night at Fantastic Fest at its U.S. premiere in Austin. Bogliano, producer Andrea Quiroz Hernandez and stars Francisco Barreiro and Lura Caro were on hand for the announcement, made by Fantastic Fest lead programmer Rodney Perkins.
The Spanish-llanguage pic was also screened recently at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Barreiro and Caro portray parents whose preteen son and daughter inexplicably reappear after being lost overnight on a desolate, cave-riddled mountainside after a casual hike became every parent’s nightmare.
This deal was negotiated for Magnet by Dori Begley and Josh Braun of Submarine.
