Dark Harvest will also star Lost alum Jeremy Davies, Casey Likes (The Birch, Everything Must Go) and E'myri Crutchfield (The Kicks, Burning Canes, Tell Me Your Secrets).

Directed by David Slade, the film is set in a small Midwestern town where every fall a supernatural spectre rises from the cornfields and makes its way toward the town's church. To get away from this suffocating town, gangs of teenage boys await their chance to confront the legendary nightmare in an annual harvest rite.

The story follows a boy named Richie Shepard trying his hand at the annual harvest. He lives in the shadow of his big brother, who won last year's run and earned his ticket out of town.

To prove himself and join his brother, Richie pairs up with Kelly Haines, a restless dreamer who is equally eager to escape this small-town life. Against the rules and the odds, Richie and Kelly decide to hunt down the legendary nightmare to win the run and their freedom, together.

Dark Harvest is currently scheduled to be released on September 9, 2022.
