It’s a big day for screen reunions, as a tale of familial fright from New Zealand is headed for Stateside release.

Dark Sky Films has announced that it will bring REUNION, which played Nightstream, Telluride Horror Show and other festivals this year, to theaters and VOD February 5. Written and directed by Jake Mahaffy, it stars Julia Ormond (THE WALKING DEAD: WORLD BEYOND, SURVEILLANCE), Emma Draper, Cohen Holloway, Ava Keane, Gina Laverty and John Bach. The synopsis: “A pregnant woman returns to her recently deceased grandparents’ old family home to spend time with her estranged mother. What begins as a tenuous reunion slowly turns terrifying.”
