Per usual, genre flicks are selling at SXSW. IFC Midnight has snapped up rights to Midnight entry Vincenzo Natali’s “Haunter,” starring Abigail Breslin as a girl perpetually on the eve of her 16th birthday, fated to relive the day before she and her family were all murdered. “Haunter” is Natali’s follow-up to 2011’s “Splice,” starring Sarah Polley and Adrian Brody.

Drafthouse Films has picked up the Midnight entry “Cheap Thrills,” starring Pat Healy ("The Innkeepers," “Compliance”) as a broke family man willing to take on a series of increasingly disturbing challenges from a rich family as a means of quick cash. The film is the directorial debut of E.L Katz.
