There once was a woman, made of moonlight and teeth...
...IFC Midnight has released the first trailer and a new poster for their striking cult horror flick, The Other Lamb, and it looks fantastic! Directed by Malgorzata Szumowska and written by Catherine S. McMullen, the trailer takes us deep into the all-too timely themes of male manipulation and abuse in what is sure to be a chilling experience this April.
In The Other Lamb:
"For her entire life, the cult she was born into has been all that teenage Selah has known. Along with a band of similarly cloistered young women she lives seemingly unstuck in time, cut off from modern society in a remote forest commune presided over by a man called Shepherd, a controlling, messiah-like figure with a frightening dark side. But when her insular world is rocked by a series of nightmarish visions and disturbing revelations, Selah begins to question everything about her existence—including her allegiance to the increasingly dangerous Shepherd. Awash in images of primal, dreamlike dread, this provocative fable is a haunting vision of adolescent awakening and revolt."
The film stars Raffey Cassidy (The Killing of a Sacred Deer), Michiel Huisman (The Invitation) and Denise Gough (Colette).
Sacrifice yourself to The Other Lamb when it opens on Friday, April 3rd, 2020 exclusively at the IFC Center in New York, and in Los Angeles with rollout to select cities, as well as on VOD and digital.
