Hunting season is on! In a modern America where witches are real and witchcraft is illegal, Witch Hunt follows teenager Claire, who must face her own demons and prejudices as she helps two young witches elude authorities to seek asylum in Mexico.
This gripping mystery-thriller shows what can happen in a modern society when irrational fears and old prejudices take over. Witch Hunt is written and directed by Elle Callahan (“Head Count”), starring award-winning Elizabeth Mitchell (“The Purge: Election Year”, “Lost”), Christian Camargo (“The Hurt Locker”, “Penny Dreadful”), Gideon Adlon (“The Mustang”, “The Society”), Abigail Cowen (“Chilling Aventures of Sabrina”, “I still believe”) and Lulu Antariksa (“Legacies”, “Side Effects”).
Witchcraft and magic are prohibited and socially outlawed in today’s America. High school student Claire and her family are part of an intricate network that helps witches escape across the US-border to seek asylum in Mexico. However, when their mode of transport is disrupted by federal witch hunters, trouble befalls the family as they struggle to hide two young witches within the walls of their home. As witch hunters close in and strange magic begins haunting the family, Claire discovers that she may have more in common with these witches than she could have ever imagined.
