Elijah Wood (Color Out of Space) is returning to the indie horror-comedy genre for the upcoming Come to Daddy at Saban Films, which has debuted its first trailer teasing a macabre and darkly hilarious family reunion. The trailer can be viewed in the player below!
Norval Greenwood, a privileged man-child arrives at the beautiful and remote coastal cabin of his estranged father. He quickly discovers that not only is dad a jerk, but he also has a shady past that is rushing to catch up with both of them. Now, hundreds of miles from his cushy comfort zone, Norval must battle with demons, both real and perceived, in order to reconnect with a father he barely knows.
The film is written by Toby Harvard (The Greasy Strangler), based on a story idea from Ant Timpson (The ABCs of Death), and is directed by Timpson. In addition to Wood, the film features a cast that includes Stephen McHattie (Watchmen), Garfield Wilson (The Man in the High Castle), Martin Donovan (Tenet), Michael Smiley (The World’s End) and Simon Chin (Killing Eve).
Harvard is producing the film alongside Laura Tunstall, Emma Slade, Mette-Marie Kongsved, Katie Holly and Daniel Bekerman, with Lia Buman, Tim Headington, and Timpson set as executive producer.
The horror-comedy is set to hit select theaters and video on demand on February 7.
