Hungry for a new horror movie to sink your teeth into? IFC Midnight has shared the official trailer for A Banquet, a nightmarish tale from Scottish filmmaker Ruth Paxton.
In A Banquet, widowed mother Holly is radically tested when her teenage daughter Betsey experiences a profound enlightenment and insists that her body is no longer her own, but in service to a higher power. Bound to her newfound faith, Betsey refuses to eat but loses no weight. In an agonising dilemma, torn between love and fear, Holly is forced to confront the boundaries of her own beliefs.
Sienna Guillory (Resident Evil: Apocalypse), Jessica Alexander (Get Even), Lindsay Duncan (A Discovery of Witches), and Ruby Stokes (Bridgerton) star in A Banquet, which was written by Justin Bull. The film hits select theatres and digital platforms in the US on February 18th ahead of its UK release on March 11th.
