An ominous poster has been unveiled for Michael Tully’s (Ping Pong Summer) Don’t Leave Home. The title is a warning in itself, teasing a supernatural tale that will have you scared to leave the house.
The film is described as a “psycho-religious horror film” and follows an artist’s obsession with an urban legend. Her investigation leads her to a fellow artist who lives as a recluse in Ireland.
After recently unveiling her new sculptural exhibit on Irish urban legends, artist Melanie Thomas is contacted by Father Alistair Burke, a reclusive Irish priest who, legend has it, once painted the portrait of a young girl who later disappeared on the very day her image vanished from the painting. Now, summoned by Burke and his cohort to the Irish countryside for a special art commission, Melanie eagerly accepts the offer, never stopping to consider that some urban legends might be true.
Don’t Leave Home stars Anna Margaret Hollyman, Helena Bereen and Mark Lawrence. You’ll be able to catch the film when it hits the popular horror streaming service Shudder later this year. Perhaps now is the time to get a subscription if you’ve not yet signed up.
