A new set of images has emerged for Don’t Knock Twice, the upcoming British spooker from director Caradog James (The Machine, Little White Lies), and it includes our first look at the film’s witch.
In the film, which was penned by Howl writing duo Mark Huckerby and Nick Ostler, genre regular Katee Sackhoff (Oculus, Halloween: Resurrection) plays 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.
Don’t Knock Twice premiered at Piccadilly Circus’ Raindance Film Festival in September, and is looking at a wider release in early 2017.
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.
