• Dir: Neill Blomkamp

  • Canada, 2021, English, 104mins, DCP

  • Cast: Carly Pope, Chris William Martin, Nathalie Boltt

A flaming mansion, a demon’s portrait, a wicked device… frightening imagery keeps haunting a young woman, who undergoes an experiment into the mind to connect with her comatose mother. Glimpses of cuts appearing on her arm go beyond nightmarish fright as she unleashes terrifying demons, when supernatural forces at the root of a decades-old rift between mother and daughter are ruthlessly revealed. District 9 (2009) and Elysium (2013) director Neill Blomkamp turns the pandemic lockdown into an opportunity for an independent creative experiment cross-cutting science fiction and horror, dragging viewers into a psychological journey a la Kon Satoshi’s Paprika .
