Things are about to get strange.

IFC Midnight has just announced that Guillermo Amoedo’s The Stranger, which stars Luis Gnecco, Lorenza Izzo, and Ariel Levy, will be released in select theaters and VOD on June 12th.

The Eli Roth-produced film premiered at Austin’s Fantastic Fest film festival last fall.

Here’s a festival synopsis:

Amoedo shows a deft ability to turn a bloodthirsty monster movie on its head, into a slow-burn, character-driven film. THE STRANGER takes its time, building the tension through occasional flashbacks and having the audience sympathize with Peter, who grew up not knowing his father. Peter, like the audience, is kept largely in the dark about his father’s motives or even what he is… because he’s certainly not human. What is apparent is the chaos his dad’s return has on the small town, especially a member of the police force and his violence-prone son.

THE STRANGER is ultimately about family, the legacy we pass on to our children and the lengths we go to protect and ensure their survival, no matter how dark and deadly they might become. (James Shapiro)
