Religion and horror have often made for a good scary movie mix, and that’s what’s in store for viewers in The Vigil.

Having left a heavily religious life, a young man is drawn back in for an overnight vigil watching over the body of a deceased community member. But a terrible dark secret is set to be unleashed…

The Vigil is the feature movie debut from writer/director Keith Thomas, and garnered positive buzz on the festival circuit last year.

Meanwhile, Thomas will be helming a new take on Stephen King’s Firestarter for Blumhouse.
