101 Films has released a UK poster and trailer for writer-director Ben Charles Edwards’ psychological horror Father of Flies which tells the story of a young boy as he confronts the terrifying supernatural forces that have moved into his home with the arrival of a strange new woman. Check them out below ahead of the film’s UK release next month…
Having broken up with his wife who is struggling with a mental health illness (Sandra Andreis – The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Only You Only Me), newly single dad, Richard (Nicholas Tucci – YOu’re Next, Myth) invites his new partner Coral (Camilla Rutherford – The Darjeeling Limited, Gosford Park) to live with him and his children in their remote house, in the snow-covered mountains.
With the sudden departure of their mother, the children are unhappy and unsettled with the new set up – rebellious teen Donna (Page Ruth – Shameless, For Your Consideration) is suspicious of the new woman in their lives and is rarely home, while vulnerable and hearing-impaired Matthew (Keaton Tetlow – Mother, Eddie, Milo and the Box) is forced to share this bleak and lonely space with the strange newcomer – who sports a disturbing plastic massaging mask and is distant and disinterested in her inherited family.
As the hostility grows and claustrophobia sets-in, the tension reaches boiling point and the family is confronted by an ominous presence, a dark, deadly malevolence… what is this terrifying supernatural force and what does it want?
Father of Flies is set for a UK release on digital on April 11th from 101 Films.
