Teeth will chatter when the psychological thriller, The Haunting of Helena, arrives on DVD and Digital September 17 from Gaiam Vivendi Entertainment, Bloody Disgusting Selects, and The Collective.
Starring Harriet MacMasters-Green (Parking Lot, Smile), Jarreth J. Merz (The Passion of the Christ, Taking Sides), Matt Patresi (The Passion of the Christ, The International), Giuliano Montaldo (Sacco & Vanzetti, The Entrepreneur) and Sabrina Jolie Perez in her debut role as Helena, the nightmarish film adds a whirlwind of terror to the innocent children’s lore, the tooth fairy. Directed by Christian Bisceglia (Matchmaker) and Ascanio Malgarini, The Haunting of Helena follows a little girl and her single mother as a mysterious woman transforms their dreams into nightmares and their nightmares into reality.
“After a divorce, Sophia (MacMasters-Green) moves to the south of Italy with her daughter, Helena (Perez). Their new home, an apartment within an austere building of the fascist age, is a chance for them to start a new life. But inside an old storage room hides a mysterious closet and a buried secret. After the loss of Helena’s first baby tooth, a chilling obsession begins and an apparition haunts her sleep. Dreams become nightmares. Nightmares become reality. When Helena collects her classmate’s fallen teeth with an urgent hunger, it is clear that there is far more to their new home than can be seen. Sophia finds herself in a terrifying fight to save her child while maintaining her sanity.”
