SXSW title Don’t Leave Home, a horror film written and directed by Michael Tully (Septien) will be released in theaters and on VOD platforms September 14, 2018, via Cranked Up Films. However, before then it will screen at the forthcoming Popcorn Frights Film Festival in South Florida (August 10-16th).
We just now landed the official trailer from Don’t Leave Home, which is described as “an atmospheric, unpredictable, psycho-religious horror film ”about an American artist obsessed with a disturbing Irish urban legend. Obsessed with the origin of the myth, the artist ends up inside the estate of a reclusive painter in Ireland.
“After recently unveiling her new sculptural exhibit on Irish urban legends, artist Melanie Thomas is contacted by Father Alistair Burke, a reclusive Irish priest who, legend has it, once painted the portrait of a young girl who later disappeared on the very day her image vanished from the painting. Now, summoned by Burke and his cohort to the Irish countryside for a special art commission, Melanie eagerly accepts the offer, never stopping to consider that some urban legends might be true.”
The film stars Anna Margaret Hollyman (Sleeping with Other People), Helena Bereen(Hunger), and Lalor Roddy (Grabbers) and is produced by Jeffrey Allard (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre), Walter S. Hall (Entertainment), George M. Rush (Sorry To Bother You), and Ryan Zacarias (A Ciambra).
