World Premiere - SOHO International Film Festival September 2023
Nominated for BEST US SHOWCASE SHORT FILM &
BEST ACTING PERFORMANCE IN A LEADING ROLE
When her husband turns strange and violent, a wife becomes convinced he is possessed. But will anyone believe her?
With electric performances from Tori Ernst (Counting, Consider the Lilies) and Charlie McElveen (JJ Redick in FX's upcoming limited series The Sterling Affairs, HBO's The Deuce, HBO Max Pretty Little Liars) and a nail biting script by director & writer Sarah Young, this phycological thriller is heart pounding suspense in the vein of Gaslight meets The Shining.
"On average, nearly 20 people per minute are physically abused by an intimate partner in the United States. During one year, this equates to more than 10 million women and men." - National Coalition Against Domestic Violence.
I wrote this script as I (like too many) have a personal connection to domestic violence. This film is about the struggle of victims to be believed and the power of female friendship in combating cycles of abuse. I am a huge believer in telling complicated stories in accessible exciting ways through the lens of genre. The film is both entertaining and thought provoking, and I hope will stick with the audience long after viewing.
