Press Release: LOS ANGELES – RLJE Films has partnered with Shudder, AMC Networks’ streaming service for horror, thriller and the supernatural, to bring THE WITCH IN THE WINDOW on September 3, 2019 and THE RANGER on September 24, 2019 on VOD and Digital HD.

THE WITCH IN THE WINDOW is written and directed by Andy Mitton (We Go On). It stars Alex Draper (Simply Irresistible), Charlie Tacker (American Poltergeist) with Arija Bareikis (The Purge), Greg Naughton (The Independents) and Carol Stanzione (Deliver Us from Evil).

In THE WITCH IN THE WINDOW, Simon and his twelve-year-old son, Finn, head to Vermont to repair an old farmhouse and, hopefully, their relationship. But shortly after arriving, they learn of the deceased previous owner – an infamously cruel woman named Lydia – whose spirit continues to loom around the attic. As Simon makes repairs to the house, he also seems to make Lydia’s presence stronger. And after a terrifying encounter with the dark entity, he must fight to protect his son from the evil that's claiming stake on their new home.

The feature directorial debut of Jenn Wexler (producer of Depraved and Most Beautiful Island) who co-wrote the film with Giaco Furino, THE RANGER stars Chloë Levine (“The OA”), Granit Lahu (Abstract Furies), Jeremy Pope (a Tony nominee for Choir Boy and Ain’t Too Proud), Bubba Weiler (Puzzle), Amanda Grace Benitez (“School of Rock”) and Jeremy Holm (“House of Cards”).

In THE RANGER, after a run-in with the cops at a punk show goes sideways, Chelsea and her pals flee the city in search of a place to lay low. Running to the security of Chelsea’s old, abandoned family cabin in the woods, they fall under the watchful eye of an overzealous park ranger who holds a secret from Chelsea’s past.
