It’s got the appeal of Stranger Things and The Mist but carries the weight of something much deeper.

Today brings news that Starfish has been picked up for distribution by The Orchard. Expect the film to receive a limited theatrical release before arriving on VOD platforms this spring. The film stars Virginia Gardner (Halloween), Christina Masterson, and Eric Beecroft.
