Lionsgate continues its strong presence in the horror arena with the upcoming release of the psychological thriller Fear of Rain.
The genre film–slated for a Feb. 12, 2021 debut in theaters, on digital platforms and on-demand–is brought to life by writer/director Castille Landon, as reported by JoBlo.com. A trailer for Fear of Rain–which also will enjoy a Blu-ray and DVD release Feb. 16–can be viewed on this page.
Fear of Rain–which sets the stage with the tagline “Some voices you can’t outrun”–stars Katherine Heigl (with a genre resume that includes Unforgettable and Home Sweet Hell), Harry Connick Jr., Madison Iseman, Israel Broussard and Eugenie Bondurant.
The storyline follows teenager Rain Burroughs (Iseman)–diagnosed with schizophrenia–for whom every day is a struggle “as she tries to figure out which of the disturbing images, haunting voices and traumatic feelings she experiences are real and which are all in her mind,” according to the official synopsis.
But when Rain insists–against the advice of her parents (Heigl and Connick Jr.)–that “the shadows and cries from her neighbor’s attic are hiding a dark secret, she enlists help from Caleb (Broussard), the charmingly awkward new boy in school–who himself may not be real.”
Fear of Rain is the latest horror-themed film on Lionsgate’s list–which includes the Saw franchise (the next being Spiral: From the Book of Saw, due out in May 2021), Run, Antebellum, Hellboy and Jigsaw.
