Dennis Iliadis (The Last House on the Left) will direct supernatural thriller Pay the Ghost for Sidney Kimmel Entertainment. The film was adapted by Dan Kay from a short story by Tim Lebbon.
Variety says “the story kicks off on Halloween night, when a couple’s young son is mysteriously abducted. A year later, they begin to sense his presence in frightening ways. A string of terrifying clues draws them to search for the boy throughout New York, where they uncover ancient secrets and discover a vicious, vengeful spirit.”
