EUROPEAN PREMIERE - Andy Mitton, co-writer and co-director of WE GO ON and YELLOWBRICKROAD, goes solo with a staggeringly effective, character-driven supernatural horror. Stunningly scripted and performed, this gripping paranormal chiller tells the spooky tale of divorced father Simon taking his 12-year-old son, Finn, to rural Vermont to help him property flip an old farmhouse. As they start to fix the place up they soon realise that no matter how deceased Lydia, the previous owner was, it doesn’t look like she ever left the premises. And with every repair they make, her malicious spirit seems to be getting stronger.
