Cameras Start Rolling On New Horror Film ‘I’ll Play Mother’

by Thomas Tuna

The perils of parenthood.

I’ll Play Mother–a new psychological horror feature–has started filming, according to a report on Deadline, and a first-look image is on this page. No release window has been announced.

The film–directed by Brad Watson (The Siege) from a screenplay by Libby Adam–stars Susanne Wuest (Goodnight Mummy), Jo Martin (Doctor Who) and Shubham Saraf (A Suitable Boy).

In the film–described as a horror pic “about the relentless and unending paranoia of parenthood”–Michelle (Wuest) and Cyrus (Saraf) have finally been cleared for adoption and are entering the family-finding phase.

But, they’re “plagued by the old wounds, past traumas and disagreements that sullied the journey to get there. Then they meet the orphaned children and, for a while, it looks like everything will fall into place.”

This is threatened, though, when the youngest child fashions a life-sized Pretend Mummy from objects he finds in storage and, “under the unblinking face of the mannequin, the couple’s relationship begins to fracture. And then Cyrus, while home alone with the children, witnesses strange and incomprehensible occurrences in the house.”
