Starring Halloween‘s Andi Matichak, Son was shot last year by Irish filmmaker Ivan Kavanagh (The Canal) and also stars Emile Hirsch (Autopsy of Jane Doe, Lords of Dogtown) and Luke David Blumm (The King of Staten Island, The Walking Dead) in what looks to be an uber-creepy cult/paranormal film.
The synopsis from RLJE Films reads, “after a mysterious group of individuals breaks into Laura’s home and attempts to abduct her eight-year-old son, David, the two of them flee town in search of safety. But soon after the failed kidnapping, David becomes extremely ill, suffering from increasingly sporadic psychosis and convulsions. Following her maternal instincts to save him, Laura commits unspeakable acts to keep him alive, but soon she must decide how far she is willing to go to save her son.”
Son will have a theatrical release but will also hit Shudder on March 5th. Have a look at the trailer and official poster below.
