Desperate to save her ailing dad, a young woman turns to the world of witchcraft for help in David Keating's Cherry Tree, a new horror film hitting theaters and VOD early next year from Dark Sky Films.

Cherry Tree hits theaters and arrives on VOD on January 8th from Dark Sky Films. In addition to a new Cherry Tree poster, we have the movie's official synopsis and teaser trailer (from its appearance at this year's Fantasia International Film Festival).

Synopsis: "A young woman makes a fateful pact with a witches' coven that can save her dying father's life.

Faith's world is turned upside down after she finds out that her beloved father is dying. When the mysteriously alluring Sissy Young becomes her new hockey coach, Faith has no idea that Sissy is the head of a witches' coven that has resided in her home town of Orchard for centuries. Using the fruit of an ancient cherry tree in a bloody ritual, the witches can bring the dead and dying back to life, and when Sissy offers to cure Faith's father, she lures the young woman into a dangerous deal that will leave her fighting for her life.

Cherry Tree is the sexy, gory and haunting new film by David Keating, the critically acclaimed director of Wake Wood."

Directed by David Keating, Cherry Tree stars Anna Walton (Hellboy II, Mutant Chronicles, Vampire Diary), Naomi Battrick (Crossing Lines, Waterloo Road), and Sam Hazeldine (The Monuments Men, The Raven).
