IFC Films: March 2021 Highlights

The folks at IFC Films just announced a slew of titles coming to VOD and IFC Films Unlimited next month. Some of the highlights include Last Call, a new comedy starring Bruce Dern, Jeremy Piven, and Taryn Manning, as well as the SXSW hit Shithouse.

I haven’t caught either Last Call or Shithouse yet, but I can personally recommend Ghost Stories, a tragically underseen horror anthology starring Martin Freeman. Ghost Stories isn’t as flashy as The Conjuring movies, but its slow-burn psychological horror vibe is just as creepy.

We’ve got all the details about next month’s releases listed below.

IFC Films comedy LAST CALL starring two-time Oscar nominee Bruce Dern and Entourage’s Emmy-winning Jeremy Piven is coming to VOD on March 19. Directed by Paolo Pilladi, LAST CALL follows a successful developer as he grapples with a decision to raze or resurrect his family’s bar after returning to his childhood home in Philadelphia.

New IFC titles coming to IFC Films Unlimited this March include female-led spy thriller, A CALL TO SPY; SXSW Grand Jury Prize Winner, SHITHOUSE; South Korean thriller, THE HOUSEMAID; and horror stage play-turned-film GHOST STORIES starring Martin Freeman.
