Writer/director Elle Callahan's SXSW Online allegorical chiller Witch Hunt tells of an alternate America that lives in fear of women blessed with supernatural powers. When government agents hunt down and burn a witch at the stake, her two daughters Fiona and Shae (Abigail Cowen and Echo Campbell, respectively) seek shelter at the home of border town home of a sympathetic family. But Claire (The Craft: Legacy's Gideon Adlon) finds Fiona and Shae's presence to be more disruptive than dangerous as she deals with her own problems at high school. At least until a government witch hunter knocks on the front door. Witch Hunt also stars The Purge franchise's Elizabeth Mitchell, The Last Exorcism's Ashley Bell, and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 and Part 2's Christian Camargo. Elle Callahan previously directed Head Count. Witch Hunt premieres 8 p.m. central March 17 during SXSW Online, which runs through March 20.
