We now have the first teaser trailer for David Keating’s Cherry Tree, which celebrated its World Premiere at Montreal’s Fantasia International Film Festival on July 25th.
Keating, who directed the 2010 Hammer Film Wake Wood, is behind this new horror pic starring Naomi Battrick, Patrick Gibson, Sam Hazeldine, and Leah McNamara.
“Faith’s world is turned upside down after she finds out that her beloved father is dying. When the mysteriously alluring Sissy Young becomes her field hockey coach, Faith finds a compassionate spirit and much-needed mother figure. Little does she know that Sissy is the head of a centuries-old witches’ coven that uses the fruit of an ancient cherry tree in a secret ritual that restores life to the dead and dying. Offering to cure her father in exchange for a child, Sissy strikes a bargain with Faith, who suddenly finds herself pregnant with a baby that’s growing at an alarming rate. But with the clock to the child’s birth ticking down and the true intention of Sissy’s plans for humanity becoming more apparent, Faith and her father must stand together in order to save both their lives.“
