Known previously as Where the Devil Hides, the now re-titled The Devil’s Hand has bagged distribution deals worldwide, including here in the UK. While no UK dates have been confirmed, a US release date has, and you will find the details of the deals below, courtesy of Screen Daily.
Roadside Attractions has earmarked an October 10 US release for The Devil’s Hand, formerly Where The Devil Hides, about six girls in a small village who were born on the same day nearly 18 years ago and start to disappear.
While village edlers claim a hellish prophecy may be about to come true, some suspect other forces may be at work.

Christian E. Christiansen (The Roommate) directs, and Karl Mueller is on writing duties. The impressive cast includes Jennifer Carpenter, Alycia Debnam-Carey, Rufus Sewell, Thomas McDonell, Adelaide Kane, Leah Pipes, Colm Meaney, Stacey Edwards and Ric Reitz.
Something very strange happened in the small village of New Bethlehem, a devout community kept under the tight reins of the town’s vigilant Elders. Six girls born on the same day to different mothers. Perhaps a coincidence or, as most believe, a chilling omen of something yet to come. Now, on the eve of their 18th birthday, the young women are mysteriously disappearing one by one and feared dead. Terror has overtaken this quiet community. Could this be the work of a serial killer, one of the village elders, or an horrific prophecy come true, born of the supernatural?
