Genre label IFC Midnight has acquired North American rights to Contracted, about a young woman who fears she’s picked up a nasty STD only to discover it’s something far worse. Eric England (Madison County, Roadside) wrote and directed the pic, which stars Najarra Townsend, Matt Mercer, Alice Macdonald, Katie Stegeman, Charley Koontz, Caroline Williams, and You’re Next/VHS filmmaker Simon Barrett. The AMC Networks-owned IFC Midnight will release Contracted in November. J.D. Lifshitz and Raphael Margules of BoulderLight Pictures are producers. Sundance Selects/IFC Films negotiated the deal with Nate Bolotin of XYZ on behalf of the filmmakers. Since its creation in 2010, IFC Midnight’s genre releases have included The Human Centipede (First Sequence), Kill List, Room 237, Maniac, and Haunter.
