Dark Sky Films and Snowfort Pictures will team with writer-director Ted Geoghegan on “Satanic Panic,” the follow-up to his “We Are Still Here,” Variety has learned exclusively.

“We Are Still Here” premiered at SXSW this year and was released domestically in the fall through Dark Sky Films. It became No. 1 on the iTunes horror chart.

MPI is also handling foreign sales on the supernatural thriller at this year’s AFM.

The new project re-teams Geoghegan with producer Travis Stevens and Greg Newman. Grady Hendrix, whose recent best-selling novel “Horrorstor” is in development at Fox Television with “Gossip Girl” creator Josh Schwartz, is writing the screenplay.

“Satanic Panic” centers on a minimum-wage delivery girl who is forced into a night-long battle with the rich and affluent leaders of a suburban community after discovering they’re part of a satanic cult. “Equal parts supernatural horror and survival thriller, the film hinges on smart, funny dialogue and a clever, surprisingly badass female hero,” Geoghagen said.

Snowfort is currently in post-production on Karyn Kusama’s segment for the horror anthology film “XX,” Jade Porter’s Mexican skateboard documentary “Concrete Futuro,” John Carchietta’s high-school romance “Teenage Cocktail” and Ricky Bates Jr.’s “Trash Fire,” starring Adrian Grenier, Angela Trimbur, Matthew Gray Gubler and Annalynne McCord.
