A new religious horror film hits the Fantasia International Film Festival this month–and several moody images hint at the terror to come.
The movie–with the ominous title The Last Thing Mary Saw–will debut at the festival, as reported by JoBlo.com, and the atmospheric photos on this page show the film’s main characters.
The film–from writer/director Edoardo Vitaletti–boasts a cast chock full of genre veterans, including Isabelle Fuhrman (Escape Room: Tournament of Champions), Stefanie Scott (Insidious: Chapter 3), Rory Culkin (Scream 4) and Judith Roberts (Dead Silence).
The movie starts out in 1843, with a young woman named Mary (Scott) being interrogated about events surrounding her grandmother’s death. Jumping back in time, Mary is seen being raised in a “repressively religious household, finding happiness in the arms of Eleanor (Fuhrman), the home’s maid,” according to the synopsis.
Mary’s family–believing they are acting on God’s behalf–view the girl’s relationship “as an abomination, to be dealt with as severely as possible.” The couple tries to carry on in secret, but someone is always watching, “and the wages of perceived sin threaten to become death.”
And the situation is made worse “by the arrival of an enigmatic stranger (Culkin) and the revelation of forces other than the Lord at work.”
A release date has yet to be announced, so keep reading Horror News Network for the latest on The Last Thing Mary Saw.
