"The movie business is macabre. Grotesque.
It is a combination of a football game
and a brothel."

Kent and co-writer Shane Twerdun have crafted a thought-provoking and violent horror story centered around the all-too-real battle between personal choice, state-sanctioned law, and religious dogma.

“She Who Must Burn” will be available to rent or own starting October 11th on Dish Network, Cox, Charter, Verizon Fios, DirecTV, iTunes, Amazon Instant, Google Play, Vudu, Xbox, and more.

Sarah Smyth (“Cedar Cove,” “Supernatural”) headlines as a healthcare provider at odds with the evangelical family in her small town. When she refuses to stop seeing women in need and even helps a desperate member of their own family (sci-fi icon Jewel Staite, “Firefly,” “Stargate: Atlantis,” “The LA Complex”), they decide she is to blame for the mysterious deaths in the community and must pay.

“She Who Must Burn” premiered at the 2015 Fantasia International Film Festival and received the Best Feature Film award. It also took the Best Feature Film nod at Blood in the Snow an, at the Fright Night Festival, won Scariest Film, Best Villain, and Best Supporting Actress awards.

A deadly storm heads towards a small mining village as the local preacher feeds the dark resentments seething in the souls of its citizens. Angela is the only medical resource for women in this unfortunate town where stillbirths and cancer have become disturbingly common. The local preacher and his followers blame Angela for the miscarriages and deaths, and even her deputy sheriff boyfriend can’t protect her from their wrath. Dark clouds gather as the preacher’s followers, infected with religious fervor and inflamed with passionate righteousness, seek to cleanse their community. Those who sin against the Lord must pay.
