...IFC Films has released a new trailer for writer/director Carlo Mirabella-Davis' Swallow, which features a pregnant woman (Haley Bennett) who develops a nasty new habit. Though the trailer below is totally safe for work, I dare you not to cringe.
"On the surface, Hunter appears to have it all. A newly pregnant housewife, she seems content to spend her time tending to an immaculate home and doting on her Ken-doll husband, Richie. However, as the pressure to meet her controlling in-laws and husband’s rigid expectations mounts, cracks begin to appear in her carefully created facade. Hunter develops a dangerous habit, and a dark secret from her past seeps out in the form of a disorder called pica - a condition that has her compulsively swallowing inedible, and oftentimes life-threatening, objects."
The film also stars Austin Stowell (Battle of the Sexes), David Rasche (Succession), and Denis O'Hare (True Blood). Mollye Asher and Mynette Louie produced the film.
Get a taste of Swallow when it releases in select theaters, digital and VOD on March 6th, 2020 from IFC Films.
