British supernatural horror Don’t Knock Twice premiered last month at London’s Raindance Film Festival, but as we await news of a wider release, we can at least show you these three newly-released stills.
Genre regular Katee Sackhoff (Oculus, Halloween: Resurrection) stars as Jess, an American sculptor who returns to the UK where she spent much of her youth, to reconnect with her estranged daughter Chloe, played by Lucy Boynton (I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House). Chloe agrees to move in with her birth mother, in order to escape a witch’s curse she believes is responsible for her boyfriend’s death. The film also stars Javier Botet (Mama, The Conjuring 2, [Rec] series) and Lock, Stock…’s Nick Moran.
Caradog James (Little White Lies, The Machine) directs from a script by writing duo Mark Huckerby and Nick Ostler who, having built their careers writing CBeebies shows, did a full 180 in 2015 and penned Paul Hyett’s werewolf romp Howl.
Don’t Knock Twice follows a guilt-ridden mother (Sackhoff) who wants to reconnect with the daughter (Boynton) she was forced to place into care. To save her estranged daughter, she has to uncover the terrifying truth behind the urban legend of a vengeful, demonic witch.
